More Information

Substantial Site

A striking, mid-19th Century building, the George in Knowle is located at the top of the hill on Wells Road, Bristol. Set back from the road, the pub is surrounded by homes which provides a wide variety of potential customers, ranging from comfortable families and professionals to more mature homeowners who have modest incomes.

As there is no kitchen at present, the current offer is primarily drinks led and based around keenly priced drinks and events such as live music, live sports and traditional pub games. To excel, The George must become the hub of the neighbourhood, a focal point for all locals. Supporting the many and varied interest groups in the area such as darts, pool, fundraising, local schools, business networking, whatever they may be, is key. The future offer should be based around a combination of product quality, friendly customer service and sensible pricing.

Customer Focused Entrepreneur Wanted
