Front Street, Great Lumley, Chester-Le-Street, Durham, DH3 4JB
The Old England at Great Lumley represents a great opportunity to re launch and re position the pub in the local market. We are planning to refurbish the pub throughout to modernise the décor, toilets and bar areas. It is a large site, with locals drinking and socialising bar and a separate large dining which is currently under utilised. The opportunity here is to implement a good local food offer to attract new customers, from the large amounts of surrounding residential homes. This is the only remaining pub in the area, so if you get your offer right, there is a captive audience close by. Currently the site is heavily wet led, so this means there is a real chance to improve sales and footfall.
Great Lumley is a small-to-medium sized town in County Durham. It is situated south east of Chester-le-Street, near Lumley Castle. The Old England is located centrally with large residential housing areas close by, in a prominent roadside position.
