The White Lion is a great family-friendly pub, in a fantastic location with a big car park, great food, a large variety of drinks and modern decor. It even has a spacious terrace garden. Here you’ll discover a venue bursting with potential!
The ideal operator will have a passion for beer and food quality. You’ll have previously operated a business that engages with locals and new guests alike, with experience in creating strong community links. Previous hospitality experience is essential. So is a track record of recruiting, training, and leading a team from the front. You’ll be keen to host regular events and capitalise on all the pub’s spaces, including the picturesque beer garden and car park. You’ll also optimise the new premium drinks offer, local cask and food all day with something for the family, complete with the best Sunday roast for miles.
The Pub and Location
You’ll find the White Lion on a busy road on the outskirts of Dunstable in Bedfordshire, northwest of London. It is a modern version of a traditional British public house. The ideal operator will make this the go-to pub of 30 within a 1.5-mile radius. Advantageously, a new housing estate is in construction just half a mile away.
You’ll take advantage of the 2/3 trading areas indoors with over 100 covers, beer garden, extensive car park to the side and decent sized kitchen. Guests benefit from additional TVs, a dedicated pool table and a darts area; you’ll enjoy a refurbished interior before reopening.
You’ll ensure that the White Heart is indeed the beating heart of a community. Ideal for families, couples and young people alike and thus become the hub of the community for the locals. You’ll support the local football team and in-house pool, darts, and quiz teams.
You’ll also ensure a warm welcome, excellent food offer and fantastic monthly events. In addition, the garden’s potential will be maximised in the summer, drawing guests from further afield.
The flat is immaculate and consists of three bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, and bathroom.
