Mill Tavern Hebburn

Investment Planned

The Mill Tavern is located in a residential area on the edge of Hebburn, a small town on the south bank of the River Tyne situated between the larger towns of Jarrow and Gateshead and with good access to the city of Newcastle. The pub is popular with the local community and attracts a mixed age group including families. Given it's location convenient to nearby towns and Newcastle combined with the transformation into a stylish and trendy pub, serving great food and drinks, there is significant opportunity to attract a wider range of customers. The versatile offering of live sports, music and a brand-new carvery will open multiple income streams.

Post-refurbishment, The Mill Tavern will be an attractive and trendy venue, where customers will love to spend their time. Star Pubs and Bars envision the pub will offer a premium pub-food menu, featuring a carvery, a fantastic range of drinks, a great outdoor space to enjoy year round and live sport and music.

Experienced Operator Wanted

The ideal operator for the Mill Tavern will have previous experience in running sites of a similar style, the ability to develop the existing food offer as well as keep the focus on the local community and driving wet sales.

Trading Area & Facilities

The extensive refurbishment of The Mill Tavern will transform it into a vibrant, stylish pub with a premium feel. The planned works will include a refurbishment of the kitchen and the addition of a new carvery to support a fantastic new food offer. The bar and dining area will also be transformed into a stylish space where customers can enjoy great food and quality drinks.

Externally the pub will undergo a facelift which will see much improved kerb appeal through a new lighting & signage scheme. The pub also currently benefits from a large car park and outside trading area to the front of the premises.

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 and consists of three bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and bathroom and where required there will be appropriate works carried out in line with the Star Pubs & Bars Ready to Trade promise.
