This pub is available on a Tenancy At Will agreement (TAW). A TAW agreement is a short-term licence which can be terminated at short notice. You are taking on a temporary agreement only and as such some key elements of the codes of practice and the Landlord and Tenant Act will not apply. TAWs cannot be assigned nor can sub-letting take place.

Even though this may only be a tenancy at will, you will need some form of capital behind you for cash flow and early expenses. The actual amount of capital required for ingoings and the rent will be discussed with the Operations Manager.

Please be aware that for a TAW application, you will need an up-to-date Personal Licence to progress.

Are you a sports enthusiast looking for a wet-led community pub to run? Look no further than the Hop Pole in Crewe.

Pub and location

The Hop Pole is a fantastic community pub on Wistaston Road, at the heart of Crewe town centre.

It’s the place to be for live sport, a catch-up with mates, a cheeky pint after work, a tasty meal, or even to dance the night away! Everything you’d expect from a great local pub.

At the Hop Pole, guests enjoy the perfect viewing of their favourite sports on Sky and BT, live and in HD on the big screens! It’s a popular pub to watch the biggest games in the Premier League. If you love a bit of rugby or enjoy a quiet afternoon watching horse racing, you’ll be in your element running this pub. You’ll host live entertainment featuring some of the best local talents and your very own discos!

Ideal operator

The ideal operator will have a big personality and bags of pride when running the best pub in the area. We’re looking for a strong character at ease running a tight ship with fantastic leadership skills.

Can you play Bowls? Dominoes? Darts? If not, then you need to learn! Are you a member of CAMRA? If not, then you need to join! The Hop Pole needs an operator who can bring pub events to life on social media.

As the beating heart of this neighbourhood, you will have had experience running sports teams, charity events and a successful kitchen. You’ll lead a great team to keep the best standards and service in the area. You will get to know your regulars well and the local neighbourhood and be proud of being the ultimate local pub in Crewe.

You must have solid organisational skills, flexibility and be commercially savvy. If this narrative strikes a chord with you, we must talk, as this is an epic opportunity to run the liveliest local area!

Be your boss, working with your Operations Manager to ensure you run the Best Pub in the area. Above all, become the community figurehead and enjoy local celebrity status whilst reaping the financial rewards!

Fully refurbished in December 2019, the Hop Pole is in good condition.

Enjoy a fantastic site with plenty of opportunities.
