More Information

While the Handbridge is located in an affluent residential area of the same name it is important to note that this is just a short stroll from the Chester City walls and the River Dee. As such the future proposition of the pub will be able to benefit from community walk to traffic but also as a staging point for revellers heading to and from the City nightlife.

There has been a comprehensive investment in the site to bringing the pub back to life as a real community asset with a proposition to suit. Currently there is a great home cooked, contemporary menu complimented by heritage ciders, craft beers and cask ales and world beers. A place to enjoy great coffee in a relaxed atmosphere or a uniquely poured draught lager, all in surroundings that we would describe as having “A Bit of Style!” This is truly a premium local with the added benefit of a wonderful beer garden which is a key asset and the envy of the competition.

If you’ve benefited from running or owning a pub business, we’d love to hear what experience you can bring.

The right operator for the pub will have extensive experience in a community led hospitality business. They will have a clear vision for their food & drinks menu, the food offer will remain important to compliment the healthy Wet sales; while maximising the beer garden through spring and summer will be “icing on the cake!”  

If this sounds like the incredible pub opportunity you’ve been waiting for, apply today and tell us what you can bring to this pub’s next chapter…
