Hope & Anchor Greatham

Superb Business Opportunity

The Hope & Anchor is a popular high street pub in the village of Greatham, situated very close to Hartlepool, and is about to benefit from a transformative investment to update both the interior and exterior. It is situated near to other local businesses on the main thoroughfare through Greatham. The village has a traditional feel and is mainly occupied by professional couples and families. A new housing development is due to be built in the village which will boost the population and create an excellent opportunity to increase footfall. Being so close to Hartlepool this also provides the opportunity for the Hope & Anchor to become a destination pub and provide the right operator with an opportunity to build an exciting and appealing offer.

Post-refurbishment, the Hope & Anchor will be a stylish and welcoming pub with a sophisticated finish, providing the perfect place for customers to meet and socialise over food, drinks and games. Star Pubs and Bars envision the pub to provide a great food menu, offering options to cater for several different dining occasions, a great drinks selection, including a broad selection of gins, premium wines and beers, a fun and sociable games room and an inviting outside space, which can be use all year round.

Highly Experienced Operator Wanted

We require an operator who can demonstrate a proven track record within the licensed trade and who can work with us to allow this pub to achieve it's full potential. Applicants should be aware refurbishment details are yet to be finalised and accordingly, commercial terms including the rent and in-going costs are subject to review and sign off.

Trading Area & Facilities

Once the planned works are complete, the Hope & Anchor will showcase a traditional pub decor with a modern, industrial twist. The refurbishment will involve a complete transformation of the current space, creating different drinking zones with a mixture of quality finishes and furniture.

The left-hand side of the bar will be removed to maximise the service area and create a prime retail space in the main bar area. A new, stripped-back bar will provide a great space to enjoy drinks, whilst the dining area will offer a relaxed environment to enjoy a delicious bite to eat. This, combined with a new games room, will transform the Hope and Anchor into a fun, lively and much-loved pub.

The current kitchen will be improved where required to enable an increased food offer.

Externally the pub will undergo a facelift which will see much improved kerb appeal through a new lighting & signage scheme. There is a car park to the rear of the pub, as well as an outside seating area, which adds real appeal to the pub especially in the summer months.

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).

Private Accommodation

The private accommodation is of a good size, suitable for a family. It consists of 3 bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, and lounge. Where required there will be appropriate works carried out in line with the Star Pubs & Bars Ready to Trade Promise.
