Overview

Could you run this pub in Weymouth?
The Old Ship Inn, Dorset is a beautiful beamed village pub in Upwey, just ten minutes from the popular seaside town of Weymouth. It is in beautiful condition with fresh external decoration.
This pub offers fantastic trading space including a courtyard beer garden with absolutely stunning views, a private car park and generous private living accommodation. The pub is busy throughout the week, both for delicious food and drinks at lunchtime and in the evenings. The pub is currently known for its weekly quiz, Curry Club and is a popular destination for locals to drink on a Friday evening. The pub also has a great reputation across the area for its Sunday roast.

The pub offers excellent trading facilities. The main trading area of the pub is the open plan bar and restaurant. There is seating for up to 55 covers that are distributed over three interlinked areas, which are well presented with comfortable seating. The exterior of the pub offers a sun terrace/beer garden with spectacular views of the local area and additional seating for about 26 people. To the rear of the building there is a well-presented function room/skittle alley for local teams. Currently the pub offers free use of this facility to local and known clients driving addition business to the pub. The pub also offers parking for up to 12 cars.

The location
Upwey is small village just outside Weymouth and equally close to the busy town of Dorchester. Not far from the Jurassic coast, the area is a popular tourist destination for summer holidays and getaways throughout the year. Families flock to the many holiday parks in nearby Weymouth and throughout Dorset. There is a strong community that supports The Old Ship Inn and The Royal Standard in this village and the current Publicans recognise the mutual success that both pubs have achieved by working together to drive customers to the village.

Accommodation
The private accommodation includes two bedrooms, a kitchen and lounge.

The ideal operator
We are looking for a Publicans/or a Publican to continue to develop this beautiful and popular pub. You will have catering experience (in offering quality and good value pub classics) with great standards of service as well as the ability to develop lasting community relationships and a real desire to be part of the local community. A great personality, enthusiasm for the area and local knowledge would be of a great benefit to this business.
