The Rossmere is a newly refurbished community pub. There is an established and popular offering on all drinks. Sales and it could be increased with the introduction of a back bar food offer.
TRADING AREA AND PRIVATE ACCOMMODATION
The Rossmere is a three room operation: it has a lounge/function room, a bar and a pool room. The main bar area is extremely popular throughout the day and is busy from morning through to the evening with local drinkers. The pool room is to the rear of the pub and is a great area for teams. The lounge can be used as a function room for parties, weddings or events. It has recently had a refurbishment and is in lovely condition.
The private accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a kitchen, an office and a lounge, all of which are in good condition.
LOCAL AREA AND CUSTOMER BASE
Hartlepool is a town in County Durham on the North Sea coast of North East England, with a busy shopping centre and various large employers. It is just seven miles from Middlesbrough. As they are the main football team, this is a good opportunity for business following their recent promotion. The Rossmere sits on a mixed council and private estate on the edge of Hartlepool town centre. The residents are traditionally strong pub goers and participants in pub teams.
The pub currently attracts customers from the immediate local area of Hartlepool but the main focus needs to be the teams and involving the local residents in using the pub more regularly.
The Rossmere is presently trading at around £3,750 per week on wet sales. The business has a good wet trade but this could increase considerably and would be expected to do so with the right operator forging links with the local community. There is an opportunity to introduce a back bar food offer to generate additional income and increase wet sales off ther back of this.
The successful candidate will be an operator who can develop the Rossmere into a quality community pub. They do not need to be experienced in running pubs but business acumen and strong customer service skills are important.
