Cocked Hat Scunthorpe

Town Centre Events Venue

Situated only a five minute drive from Scunthorpe town centre, this large pub and events venue is surrounded by plenty of residential housing. Due to it's proximity to Sheffield Park and the Foxhills Sports Grounds, there is plenty of opportunity for passing trade. With a high volume of adults living within a 0.5 mile radius of the pub, there is real potential to grow trade through an appealing mainstream food offer and a calendar of fun social events.

But what truly makes The Cocked Hat an interesting business opportunity is the large private function suite on the first floor of the pub. This spacious suite can seat around 120 covers plus has ample room for dancing and a live band. Perfect for wedding receptions, Christmas parties and milestone birthday celebrations, the function has the ability to appeal to outside of the local area with the right marketing strategy.

Experienced Events Operator Wanted

For The Cocked Hat, we are keen to partner with an experienced operator who is looking for their next challenge. You will have experience in both food service and running large events, combined with an ability to market the pub on social media. In partnership with Star Pubs & Bars, you will grow your business using your creative mind-set and passion for creating a great customer experience.

Trading Area & Facilities

Inside, the lounge area of the pub has a traditional feel to it - stripped back floorboards and wood panelled walls are key features. The lounge is spacious and has room for pub games such as pool. The separate function space is large and can cater to circa 120 guests seated. This room has its own large wood panelled bar and ample space for both a dance floor and live acts.

At present, the pub is split into two sections and can be accessed via two separate entrances. There is a spacious outdoor patio located to the front of the pub and one to the rear. The addition of floral baskets and fairy lights to these spaces would increase their appeal to passers-by. Private car parking is also on site.

Private Accommodation

Private accommodation at the pub consists of two bedrooms, kitchen, living room and bathroom. In line with our 'Ready to Trade Promise', should any works be required, we will ensure your private accommodation is in good order so that you can focus your energy on getting business right.
