Could you run this pub in Ipswich
The Salutation Inn is an authentic traditional Pub which had a modern makeover in 2018 with a major investment by Punch of around £200k. Benefiting from a prime location in this busy part of Ipswich, the Salutation sees plenty of varied trade as the day turns into night, and tapping into these changing phases will be key to success here. Food is a key part of the offer with daily specials and a pre-theatre menu serving the locals and shoppers as well as those on a night out at the nearby Regent theatre. The bar is stocked with an excellent range of World beers, lagers, craft and cask ales , wines and spirits with something to suit every taste.
This pub, known locally as `The Sally` has excellent architectural detailing, with brickwork and contrast paintwork contributing to a superb street presence, with patio furniture to the front. Inside the impressive new bar counter is on the right as you enter and there are around 62 covers at full capacity. In addition , the pub has a well fitted commercial kitchen on the ground floor. There are several TV screens in evidence and WIFI for customer use. Outside, there’s a small well- appointed beer terrace to the rear, as well as a smoking solution.
About the local area
Ipswich is a very attractive place to live and visit, with a scenic waterfront, a good range of parks and museums, and plenty to keep you occupied. The beautiful old Regent Theatre is just at the bottom of the street from the Salutation, and raising the pub’s profile with the venue’s repeat visitors could really make a difference to the pub’s trading figures.
To succeed here, you’ll need the skills to be able to effect a seamless transition through the day’s trading phases, perhaps offering coffee and lunches during the day and switching to local events in the evening – as well as attracting theatre-goers for a glass of wine and a bite to eat before the show. Experience and a flair for marketing and social media are a must.
The domestic accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a kitchen and a lounge, and are all in decent order.
