Champs is a well-established and popular pub in the heart of Sheffield. It boasts a vibrant atmosphere where guests come to share and celebrate all occasions. This much-loved pub has become available, and we are on the lookout for an experienced Management Partner who is passionate about hospitality and ready to take this epic pub to the next level.
Champs demands an ambitious operator. Our ideal partners will have a proven track record in hosting epic events, from live music to sporting events. They will be natural in dealing with every aspect of the business with large site experience and high food sales.
A thriving pub like Champs requires an epic team. Our Management Partner needs to be inspiring and capable of motivating an energetic team from the front of house to the kitchen and door supervisors.
Team recruitment and motivation are massively important- a figurehead ‘landlord’ is not an expectation; rather, the whole team are sold on the ethos generated by the leader. Service must be world-class; this is a business many in the community talk about, so we need a partner ready to excel in this space, ensuring Champs remains the place to be.
You will need to innovate and be on the lookout for new angles to keep ahead of the competition in a fast moving market place. Social media awareness must also be top drawer with social savvy guests on the lookout for what’s on, and where to go.
Champs remains a place that is welcome to all, so you and your team need to be ready to cater for families, couples, regulars, darts & quiz teams and local societies to name a few. All with different expectations, but with the same end result- happy to recommend you and your pub.
Our Partner will have good routines, disciplines and be organised to ensure statutory requirements are not headlines but second nature and previous experience in achieving good results and feedback in compliance will be on our agenda.
This is the original Champs as we know it, having transferred the name to this pub and taking on a fresh identity as a Sports-led bar.
A large site, well known to everyone in Sheffield, and in particular, the students based around Ecclesall Road. Since the £700k refurbishment in 2019, Champs remains unique in Sheffield for its sports viewing offering. This pub boasts a TV wall, an outside LED screen and an unrivalled number of TVs throughout the pub that are perfect for sports viewing.
Bifold doors open across the frontage to a patio area by the roadside. At the rear, doors also fold open to the beer garden which is expansive and multi-levelled. A huge LED screen shows outdoor sports without any degrade from the sunlight, and this outdoor setting is rounded off with the inclusion of an outside bar that is ready to serve on the big occasions and sunny afternoons.
Inside are seats and numerous booths, a couple of which double as online gaming centres.
A vast L-shaped bar covers the entrance, with multiple serving stations for full-on service during jam packed events.
To the side is a more relaxed gaming area- that still covers live sport with added ‘immersive fun’ including Shuffleboard, Pool, Fuzball table and even Beer pong if requested!
Good occasions are matched with good food, and a comprehensive menu is offered through to the evening. The kitchen is to the rear and is purpose made to enable you to deliver a busy service. Complete with in & out doors and a servery for staff to collect orders, this kitchen is built with the delivery of an efficient service in mind.
