Pub overview

The Woodside is a large community pub with a strong profit line and very good local presence.

The site is large and mostly open planned with zoned areas for restaurant, lounge and bar. While food is a strong seller on site it is still secondary to the very strong wet trade. The site has a large car park, a large beer garden and other outside seating. Recently refurbished the site is in excellent condition and sited in a semi rural location with woodland walks directly opposite, the local housing is very good and plentiful and the pub is popular with locals and passing trade.

2 bars seving a large mostly open plan area zoned into distinct areas. Refurbished a year ago the pub is in very good condition and has excellent furnishings.

“ The Woodside is a large community pub with a very good food trade situated in a very good area between Crewe and Nantwich in South Cheshire. The site has enjoyed a recent refurbishment internally and is in excellent condition. It trades very well and has a very strong local following. I am looking for an experienced tenant with the skill set to run a large outlet with a strong food offer. ”
