The John Marston is a large community local pub situated in the suburbs of Blurton, in the middle of a housing estate. We are looking to significantly invest in this property. With the right operator in place we want to carry out a complete refurbishment including a change of layout of the trade areas, complete redecoration internally and new signage externally.
- Huge refurbishment due to be undertaken
- Opportunity to introduce food offer
- Well established sports teams
The John Marston is a community pub which benefits from its central location on a housing estate. The pub caters for it's locals with a weekly entertainment programme and is home to both darts and dominoes teams. There is also potential to take on a pool team to further boost weekly trade. Currently trade is all drinks based but with the introduction of a fully equipped catering kitchen as part of the refurbishment there is the chance to welcome families and other customers wanting a bite to eat. We are looking for an operator who has experience in dealing with large value food offer style venues.
The pub trades from two separate rooms. The bar is of a fair size and has a raised area which is currently used for pool. The lounge is large and spacious allowing for plenty of covers. The pub is set in large grounds and has plenty of car parking. The planned refurbishment will change the layout slightly to allow easier access between the lounge and kitchen area.
The private accommodation is in good order and consists of four bedrooms, a bathroom, lounge and kitchen.
