Could you run this Bulwell pub?

Are you a community operator looking for a wet-led pub in the centre of Bulwell in Nottingham? Are you looking to create a home-from-home for the local community? Perhaps you are passionate about charity and sport, eager to launch successful fundraising events? If so, the Monkey is the pub for you!

The Monkey provides guests with an intimate, cosy setting in one long room with a tiled floor and lounge area to the right. The rear patio is home to many tables and a sheltered smoking area. When visiting the Facebook page, you can see locals embroiled in lively and fun-filled karaoke nights, all coming together for a fantastic night out in an unpretentious venue where they can be themselves. The Monkey is the pub where everyone knows your name.

The pub and location

Interestingly, although not traditional, this is a pub steeped in history. The Monkey is an Edwardian corner pub constructed in 1908 to the specification of Evans and Son architects for J. Shipstone and Sons. It’s a wet-led pub needing a Publican who yearns to be in the thick of the action creating memorable nights for locals ensuring they return again and again.

The ideal operator

You’ll be local to Bulwell, a community operator who will know all of your guests by name and their drinks without them uttering a word. You’ll have a big personality, banter and will be unpretentious and down to earth. The Monkey needs an operator who can get the local community behind community charity and sporting events.
