Great Western Corsham

Fantastic English Village Pub

An extensive refurbishment will transform the Great Western into a premium, English village pub. The Great Western is located in a premium setting, half a mile from Corsham Town Centre and within walking distance from a local school. There are more than 26,000 people living within a ten-minute drive, comprising mostly of professionals with above-average salaries, and high levels of disposable income. This makes it the perfect location for a quality pub with a great food offering.

A new commercial kitchen will enable a fantastic 'British Heritage' food offer produced from locally sourced ingredients. To support this exciting new menu, a brand new conservatory extension will accommodate an additional 20 covers. Together with a complete redecoration for a contemporary yet traditional style, and a refurbished drinking terrace, these updates will transform the pub into a must-visit destination for the whole community. The perfect place to enjoy quality meals and drinks in a cosy and relaxed environment, the Great Western is a truly exciting investment opportunity.

Exciting Opportunity For A Food Focused Operator

The successful candidate will have proven experience running a great food offering with a good knowledge of destination pubs.

The pub will be fully redecorated with new or rejuvenated fixtures & fittings. There will also be a fantastic fully equipped catering kitchen that can cater for 50+ covers.
A new single story rendered extension will provide up to 20 more daily covers and will be used as a general dining area as well as a private dining space.

Externally, the pub will undergo a facelift with a new painting, lighting and signage scheme, ensuring excellent kerb appeal. There is a car park and this is complemented by sizeable outside trading area.

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).

The calculation of the Estimated Minimum Ingoing Costs assumes a minimum deposit of 1 month's rent or £3,000 (whichever is greater) and that fixtures and fittings (F&F) are rented. The subsequent deposit build up and F&F rental costs are not included in the rent model or ongoing costs below.
