Could you run this Bournemouth pub?

The Cricketers Arms has two levels. It is an imposing Victorian local retaining many original features, including an impressive bar, etched glass, and cast-iron pillars.

This pub has a surprising history. World Champion boxer Freddie Mills once trained in vaulted upper-section of the pub when it was a gym.

If you love entertaining, this is the pub for you. Guests enjoy live music with folk and jazz bands taking the stage. Plus, there is a quiz night on Tuesdays. Plus, pool and darts games give this pub an excellent vibe.

In short, the Cricketers Arms is the place to be. Whether it is a chat with friends, putting the world to rights or watching a live sporting event, families love this pub all day. It is the quintessential Locals’ Local with picnic sets out front.


You’ll benefit from a brand new commercial kitchen. We’ll also be extending the external drinking area to increase covers and hold live sports events.

We’ll also be making the drinks range a premium offer to entice new guests. The menu will also get a revamp with pub classics, pizzas and delicious dirty burgers.

The site has a Living room, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom – no domestic kitchen.

Ideal operator

We’re looking for a Publican who will be the heart and soul of their local community. Could this be you? You’ll make this pub the place to be holding special events along with a strong rhythm of the week. You’ll create enticing food and drink offers and comedy and themed nights to maximise footfall from the locals but encourage new guests.

The location  

This pub is ideally close to Bournemouth station and football club, attracting sports enthusiasts and people passing through. Bournemouth is a peaceful coastal resort town on the south coast of England in southeast Dorset.

It’s a popular destination for tourists, attracting over five million visitors annually! You’ll love this area with its blue flag beaches and its vibrant nightlife. The town is also a regional centre of business.

To help market your pub, we also offer lots of support and advice.
