Pub overview

A well established circuit pub with potential for development and growth

The Raven is a great high street pub with strong weekend circuit footfall driven by televised sports, weekend entertainment, events and pub team sports. The site is well known and established in the Waterloo suburb of Liverpool with an established local and circuit following. The pub is a one room, open plan operation and has a beer terrace to the rear plus a catering kitchen, although this is not used at the moment. A good owner/operator publican is sought who can develop the existing trade and move it to the next level through offer development and innovative promotional activity. The introduction of an appropriate value food offer would benefit this site at key trading times.

The site is a large open plan trading area with a drinking and socialising terrace to the rear. There is an unused catering kitchen to the rear of the bar. The fixtures and fittings are appropriate to the site and are in good order.
