Could you run this pub?
The Red Lion is a true community pub in the heart of Rastrick and it has recently under gone a full internal and external investment enhancing the pub to its best. This pub is located in the heart of Rastrick’s residential area and is an excellent opportunity for an operator who really enjoys local community life. The pub’s commercial kitchen has been fitted out with new appliances throughout. The pub has ample parking and a beer garden for customers to enjoy warmer days at the rear.
The pub is divided into two very distinct trading areas with a dining area at the rear of the pub which caters for around 34 covers and a bar area at the front of the pub which is home to the pool table. This gives the pub appeals to a broad customer base without one affecting the other. The front bar with its array of beers on tap, live TV sport and a pool table appeals greatly to those looking to meet up for a drink, socialise with friends or just want to watch the big match. The dining area at the rear is nicely located away from the hustle and bustle of the front bar and provides the perfect setting to enjoy a meal with friends and family
The pub has a spacious private accommodation above the pub which encompasses three bedrooms, private kitchen, dining room and an office.
