Chichester Arms Chester

The Chichester Arms is a well maintained, modernised community local located a short walk from the University of Chester benefiting from its location in the heart of the residential area of the city. The demographics of the area feature a strong student presence as well as career builders in their 20s-30s therefore the pub would benefit from this thriving market and would make use of the great portfolio of brands Heineken has to offer including an extensive cask range and drinks appealing to the student market.

The pub benefits from a strong passing trade and is eye catching to passers-by through its neo-classical style stucco work on the doorway and windows. This modernised community local is 100% wet led. There is a fully refurbished and equipped catering kitchen which can be used to develop a classic pub menu that would appeal to the local audience and appeal to the student population. This pub has great potential to be the go-to-place in this area and we seek an ambitious and enthusiastic licence with entrepreneurial spirit to help this pub achieve its potential.

Available on our Business Start -Up Agreement, with the following support:

Trading Area & Facilities

Internally the pub has recently been modernised where a bright colour scheme was introduced into the lounge area. The lounge has a feature fireplace that is situated in the middle of the room which is complimented by the mixture of fitted and free standing soft furnished seating including three large booths ideal for large groups. The lounge area is serviced by an L shaped bar which spans across the lounge and a separate pool room. The pool room has free standing seating and tables of alternate heights.

Externally the pub features a good sized beer garden that has been tastefully refurbished and is a real hidden gem within the Garden Quarter of Chester. With comfortable furniture and festoon lighting it is a real asset to the business and will boost trade in the summer months.

Private Accommodation

The private accommodation consists of three bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and bathroom. In line with our Ready to Trade Promise, we will ensure the private accommodation is in good condition, so that you can focus on your business.
