Extensive Refurbishment Planned!

A refurbishment at the Dunkirk Hall in the town of Leyland, will turn the site into a premium community pub. The works will include a redecoration to the indoor and an overhaul of the outdoor trading spaces. We will be upgrading the main trading area, upgrading the bar's existing counter, and refurbishing the existing fixtures and fittings. We will also be upgrading the toilets.

Externally, we will be rejuvenating the garden space, forming a new attractive seating area in the large beer garden with new lighting. The pub already has a striking appearance being a listed building, but it will also be receiving a face-lift with brand new signage, enhancing its kerb appeal and attracting in passing trade and locals.

Community Focused Area

The pub itself is located in Leyland. Leyland is a town in South Ribble, Lancashire, just six miles south of Preston.  The Dunkirk Hall Arms is appointed perfectly to be the pub of choice for the new housing development close by, with 750 new houses being built. There is only one competitor pub within a mile and nothing in relative walking distance.

Untapped Potential

The potential to invest in this pub will allow for a step change to where it sits in the market and make it stand out from the limited competition. This pub would work for an operator who can integrate with the local community, enjoys being the heart and soul of the area, and can attract new customers through social media marketing. With 57 internal and nearly 150 external covers, this pub has huge potential.

When refurbished, the Dunkirk Hall will appeal to everyone from the surrounding community and due to its kerbside appeal, should also be able to feed off the daily passing trade. The new Dunkirk Hall will offer:

  • Competitively priced drinks offer including draught lagers and ciders, a wine selection, and a good range of spirits.
  • A basic food menu
  • A simple coffee offer, to increase daytime trade
  • Live sports, with Sky & TNT, darts, dominoes and should include, quizzes, charity fund raisers and live entertainment.

  • Investment Tenancy

  • Outdoor Trade

  • Private Accommodation

  • Refurbishment Planned

Trading Area & Facilities

Works will be done internally to the trade areas and toilets with the pubs exterior receiving a quality face lift.
