The Harbour lights is located in the large seaside town of South Shields. The pub is situated just off Ocean Road, which is well known for the selection of curry restaurants it offers, and beside the water affording it fantastic sea views. It is already popular with both locals and tourists, but given its close proximity to a large caravan site and varied entertainment venues at the seafront, as well as the town centre being nearby, there is excellent opportunity to capitalise on the extensive passing trade.
If you’ve benefited from running or owning a pub business, we’d love to hear what experience you can bring.
