More Information

Great Location

The Railway Tavern has the potential to sit at the very heart of the local community. Historically, the pub has been incredibly popular and the planned refurbishment will bring it back to its former glory as a modern, welcoming and bustling local pub with something for everyone.

Located at the end of a bustling high street beside a busy train station, the Railway Tavern's prime location means it has the potential to attract a significant amount of passing trade from a broad range of customers - from weekday commuters to weekend shoppers. An extensive refurbishment to the interior and exterior is planned, including a new signage scheme. The works will include expanding the garden area to create a vibrant outdoor beer garden for up to 60 customers to drink and dine alfresco during the warmer months

The Railway Tavern will be transformed into a cosy, family-friendly local pub offering a great selection of craft beers, cocktails, coffee and wine. With an affordable food menu full of crowd-pleasing pub classics.

Ambitious Licensee

More than 3,000 adults live in the local community and are currently without a premium local pub to frequent. As the only pub within a 20-minute walking radius, the Railway Tavern presents a rare and exciting opportunity for an ambitious licensee to transform it into a popular local pub serving up great food with next to no competition. Could that be you?

Trading Area & Facilities

An extensive refurbishment to the interior and exterior is planned, including a new signage scheme, improving/enhancing the outdoor trading area to create a more spacious beer garden, which is sure to drive curb appeal.

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