Could you run this Bristol pub?

The Rope Walk sits back from the main road on a tree-lined section of pavement. The pub attracts footfall from city office workers returning to their homes in Bedminster after their day, a real cultural hub of Bristol. If you do a quick Instagram search, you’ll see that the area has untapped potential trade.

Pub and location

Now is a great time to take over the pub because we have a complete internal decoration planned. We’ll sand and reseal the bar floors and servery and decorate the ground floor exterior with new fixtures and fittings.

Entering by the main door, the bar servery on the right-hand side with internal seating throughout. The floor comprises traditional wooden boards. Guests love the small courtyard to the back, complemented by a gated side entrance. Horse Dray would have used this area in years gone by, adding to the charm. The pub also benefits from a first-floor function room decorated similarly to the main ground floor.

The trade kitchen is on the first floor, quickly serviced by a dumb waiter to transport food to the ground floor.

Located on the northern edge of Bedminster just south of Bristol City centre, the pub is a 1/2 minute walk to the River Avon. Bedminster is alive with cafes, bars, brew pubs and restaurants, meaning there is plenty of footfall through the area.

Ideal operator

We are looking for a talented operator ideally experienced in running city centre pubs, or a talented and energetic General Manager from a Managed pub.

Private accommodation

This excellent business opportunity comes with two bedrooms and a private lounge.
