Could you run this pub?
The Shakespeare Inn, Hedon is a popular local community pub offering home cooked food and a decent pint in good company, in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. This Cask Marque accredited pub is a popular drinking pub and is also known for offering its great traditional food and offers potential to develop the food offer. We wish to continue to build on this success by appointing a publican who will ensure we deliver a great customer experience, making the Shakespeare the pub of choice for customers far and wide.
This pub offers open plan trading with designated areas for drinking & dining and during the colder months the real fire in the dining area is a most welcome sight. The catering kitchen is well equipped and can easily provide for the 36 covers which spill over into the outside drinking / dining area to the front of the business during the summer months. Externally we have parking for up to 24 vehicles and a smoking solution. Free Wi-Fi is available for customers use.
The private accommodation will include two bedrooms, a kitchen and lounge
About the local area
The town of Hedon is located five miles east of Hull city centre and is situated in the East Riding of Yorkshire. The population of Hedon is approx. 7000 with this business located in the heart of the residential area, close to the town centre amenities and surrounded by local older housing and small businesses. Due to its location the Shakespeare Inn is out of the towns circuit and offers a more relaxed experience for all to enjoy a good pint, great pub food and live TV and community events.
This pub may suit
The Shakespeare Inn is looking for a good “all rounder” publican who has passion for a good pint of cask ale, has a real appetite for traditional home cooked food and a genuine interest in sport. This business may suit a first time operator with food experience. Strong marketing skills would also be an advantage by attracting new custom by way of website and increased usage of social media platforms and you will enjoy offering events and promotions to attract your audience.
