YOUR CHANCE TO OFFER GREAT FOOD & SERVE THE COMMUNITY

The Poacher at Gorse Covert (Birchwood) is a popular pub with the local community, offering great food in a busy pub environment. The site really is at the heart of the community offering entertainment and live sport as well as the great food it is known for. The pub currently trades at a split of 60/40 in favour of drink. The Poacher attracts local residents predominately, although plenty travel from further afield due to the quality of food offered.

Location

Birchwood is an area in the north east of Warrington, Cheshire. Although physically and administratively part of Warrington, it claims to be a separate town because the civil parish council has named itself a town council. Historically part of Lancashire, it was built during the time of much expansion in Warrington as it became a "new town". Birchwood is separated into three residential estates: Gorse Covert, Oakwood and Locking Stumps, with all the main facilities grouped around the centre.
