Could you run this Epping pub?

Are you looking for a characterful and historic pub to run in Epping? The Duke of Wellington could be the one for you.

As part of the letting to the successful applicant, we are planning to invest in complete interior and exterior decorations. We will also create an external seating area to the front elevation over the parking spaces, including benches, new signage and lighting and picturesque planting. The plan is to resurface the existing tarmac with tar and shingle. We’ll also add new signage and lighting.

Pub and location

The pub is a prominent building fronting the high street with a loyal customer base. The key to your future success and growth of the pub, along with the benefit of our proposed capex investment, is to build on the existing customer base by attracting new and younger footfall. Our research data shows this market is there and waiting for a great publican.

There is ample opportunity to develop trade in the quieter day parts of the week with events and food themes, live sport on TV and to promote the business using social channels and enhanced website in the digital space.  The trade space has three distinct areas. There’s also a separate games room with darts and a pool table. There are two open fires in the main bar, and seating is a mix of banquette benches, tables and chairs, providing around 40 covers. The exit door at the back leads to the courtyard patio with benches and a decked, covered shelter and smoking area.

The pub is around 100 years old and sits at the end of Epping High Street.  Epping has a population of around 10,000 people, and the town is easily commutable to central London via the underground and parts of Essex via train.  The area is well known for the sprawling Epping Forest with its many walks and cycle routes.  The area has a above average affluence and the high street features up market brands, smart cafes and eateries.

Ideal operator

We’re looking for a dynamic, astute, and hard-working Publican to take charge of this lovely pub.  You’ll lead from the front, be the face of the business and will be able to draw upon and develop your excellent hospitality sector skills.   You’ll be a perfectionist, delivering consistently ambitious standards of guest service and also have the creative mind necessary to flex business needs depending on weather, season, and events.  You’ll need to develop darts and pool teams and association with local football and rugby clubs.

We’re seeking a talented operator with experience of delivering delicious pub food, events, and sports – someone who puts guests front and centre of everything they do.

Private accommodation

This enticing business opportunity provides three bedrooms, a private kitchen, and a lounge.
