More Information

Fantastic Pub in a Great Location

Barton Under Needwood is a highly affluent village on the outskirts of Burton on Trent. With over 3,500 adults living within a 10-minute walk, there are plenty of locals looking for a great premium local pub serving a range of high-quality food and drinks which offers a gap in the market that is not fulfilled by any of the local competition. As well as local trade the site offers a great opportunity to attract trade from visitors to the nearby Barton Marina complex as well as from the largest towns of Burton, Lichfield and Tamworth which are in easy reach thanks to the proximity to the busy A38.

The pub will appeal to a wide cross-section of people. With a female-friendly coffee morning offer, followed by lunch and cocktails, it will also appeal to families looking to utilise the outdoor space of the enclosed garden, while local shoppers and business people won’t be forgotten either. From coffee mornings to lunches to premium drinks and dinners, there is something to attract customers all day long. There’s even a wood-fired pizza oven!

A fantastic spirits range will be complemented with a great cask ale offer, as well as the opportunity to trade up to more premium drinks from the core range of draught products. Simple, well-presented pub classics will make up the menu. An existing wood-fired pizza oven will allow for high-end pizzas to make up part of the offer. ‘Rhythm of the week’ events, such as acoustic entertainment and pub quizzes, will be an additional draw for the local community.

Experienced Operator Wanted

We are looking for an experienced operator with drive and ambition who is ready to work with Star Pubs and Bars to make the Middle Bell the premium pub of choice in the area. You will have experience delivering a classic food menu and instil high standards of quality and service.

The patio areas to the front and rear will have new timber garden furniture and a new timber-framed covered structure to the rear. There is a car park for easy access.

Please be aware that all refurbishments are subject to final board approval which will be determined as part of the leasing process.

This applies to all pubs in England & Wales as per The Pub Code (2016).
