Fellsider Whickham

Recently refurbished and ready to trade.

The Fellsider was recently refurbished and is a modern-style mainstream pub with food located in the heart of a large residential estate in Whickham, a small, affluent commuter town located on the southern slopes of the lower Tyne Valley. Its close proximity to Tyneside and Wearside, together with easy access to excellent schools, transport, shops (Gateshead Metrocentre 3 miles) and local leisure facilities, means Whickham is popular as a place to live with families.

The pub forms part of a small shopping centre, consisting of a supermarket, newsagent and post office, and enjoys a high profile position on the corner of two busy roads. The local area is characterised by a high proportion of customers who favour a traditional pub offer based on good value food and drink combined with some entertainment, such as TV sport.

This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced community operator.

We are looking for an experienced operator with a proven track record running similar outlets. Previous catering experience is preferred.
