More Information

Substantial investment to create exceptional new business

Following a full refurbishment inside and out, The Falcon will be transformed into a fantastic community pub.

Major investment will create a fabulous town centre pub that will cater to the local population. There will be multiple zoned areas which will all undergo refurbishment, the bar will be remodelled and the sports area will be improved to cater for the strong sports following the pub already has.  In addition, a fantastic external redecoration will enhance the pub’s kerb appeal with new signage and lighting.

Excellent location

The Falcon is located in Littleborough. Littleborough is located on the main A58 that runs through and over the Pennines to Halifax in West Yorkshire and is only a 9-minute drive from Hollingworth Lake.  The local train station is a two-minute walk. Whilst the pub is located right in the middle of the village centre amongst the shops, there is a great selection of established, well-presented community housing that surrounds the pub on all sides.

Huge potential

The transformed Falcon Arms will feature all the main sports attractions of Sky & BT plus regular events and live entertainment. The pub will attract a lot of the local wet trade, given that it is just a short walk from nearby housing developments, and it will also be a go-to destination to catch up over a drink. We would like to see you bring your own ideas and flair to make the most of this great opportunity.

Target Customers

The stunning new look at The Falcon will attract a broad demographic covering all local customer groups, with various zones created throughout. You’ll find sports fans looking for a nice pub to watch live games & events as well as passing trade from the high street at the weekends.


The Falcon has the potential to be THE community pub in Littleborough. With competitively priced draught lagers, beers and ciders with the best brands on the market complemented by a simple coffee offer. Guests will be entertained with live sports through Sky & BT, pool, darts, dominoes as well as quizzes, charity fundraisers and live entertainment.

Trading Area & Facilities

Works will be done throughout the pub, touching the Sports Bar, Bar Lounge, Bar Servery, Lounge & Upper Lounge and the Gents & Ladies Toilets. A full list of works and pub floor plan can be found in the ‘refurbishment details’ in the downloads section.

Applicants should be aware that all refurbishments are subject to final board approval which will be determined as part of the leasing process. Where a significant investment is made in a pub by Star Pubs & Bars, an "Investment Exemption" will be required. The exemption means that the option of a Market Rent Option lease won't be available at rent review for a period of up to seven years for this site, as per The Pub Code (2016)
