Could you run this pub in Deal?
Are you an energetic and charismatic community operator looking for a new challenge? If so, The Bowling Green Tavern in Deal, Kent, could be the pub for you.
Situated on Church Path, this enticing watering hole steeped in history has been the go-to venue for locals since the 1800s. Guests choose this traditional, family pub for freshly home-cooked food, top quality drinks and a fantastic atmosphere.
We’re looking for an energetic entertainer who loves hosting live music events and themed nights, creating a community pub for everyone to enjoy.
The ideal operator will have experience running a classic British pub. You’ll demonstrate clear continuous improvement, never settling and always looking to take your pub to the next level. The Bowling Green Tavern is not an easy gig; it requires resilience and energy. You’ll get out of your business what you put in.
Guests love quick and hot food options. Memorable times are what they seek. Knowledge of the area is preferable but not essential. You’ll want to dive right in and get to know everyone straight away.
Most of all, your Saturday nights must be epic! You’ll create that warm, atmospheric, and safe environment for guests to party and let their hair down.. However, it won’t just be about partying. Your entertainment will be popular with disparate guests. You’ll have your quizzes and local community events already planned, ready to start on the front foot. It’ll be about maximising the pub seven days a week to deliver what the local community wants.
Family lies in the heart of this community. Whilst it is not the sole focus, a defined plan is necessary to get the cross-section of a family in love with this pub.
The Bowling Green Tavern has four trading zones: a front and back bar with two dining areas at the back of the property, leading out to a good-sized garden. You’ll maximise the potential of the rear and side of the pub that can accommodate up to 100 covers.
About the local area
You’ll also entice locals in the residential area, a pleasant walk to the nearby coast and historic Deal Castle. After the extensive refurbishment of 2018, you’ll find all the tools you need here to make the business excel!
