Ship & Pelican Exeter

Fantastic Opportunity

The subject of a proposed refurbishment, the Ship and Pelican is located on the main road into the city of Exeter. With a population of around 125,000, this prime corner plot high street location presents a fantastic opportunity to generate income through both passing trade and local residents. The demographic of this area is largely mixed, with both students and suburban families living in the surrounding area, providing excellent trading opportunities to create a mid-week student offer and family friendly offer, emphasising food at the weekends.

The Ship and Pelican is currently successfully trading as a 100% wet-led community pub and has a strong community following through several sports teams and a great drinks offer. The refurbishment planned on this pub will focus on introducing an excellent food offer to compliment the strong community following. Therefore, the planned refurbishment will include a revamp and upgrading of the catering kitchen to accommodate for the 40+ covers in the pub.
