Exciting external refurbishment planned
A refurbishment of the exterior will significantly improve the Hedgehog. Redecorations of the outside trading areas will breathe a new lease of life into this pub. Star Pubs & Bars investment will also allow for all new signage and lighting to be installed at the pub. Making the pub much more attractive to passing trade.

Great pub in a great location
The Hedgehog is located near town centre of the picturesque Welwyn Garden City. It’s close to all local amnesties and there is a high footfall due to its close proximity to the busy commuter train station. In the area, there is only one pub within a 20-minute walk. And within a ten-minute walk there are 2,300 adults, meaning this is a fantastic location.

Unmatched potential
The Hedgehog is a well-known site in the local area. The planned redecoration and it’s local affiliation give the pub bags of potential. There are 70 internal covers, and the pub already provides a great food offer. The new external décor and 85 covers will make it a brilliant venue for locals to visit. All we’re missing is the right person to drive it forward.

The right operator for the pub will have extensive experience in a community led hospitality businesses. They will have a clear vision for their drinks menu, entertainment offer and marketing strategy and can create a memorable experience for their customers.
