More Information

We’ll do the refurbishment – you bring the talent!

Inside the pub, an extensive refurbishment is underway, with a comprehensive overhaul of the interior. This transformation involves redecorating internal painted surfaces, new equipment in the kitchen and refreshing the fixtures & fittings. The aim is to breathe new life into the space, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for patrons. These interior changes are poised to reinvigorate the pub's appeal and make it a hub for the local community.

Externally, the pub's facade will also undergo a facelift with the existing signage being refreshed, brand new Heineken branded benches and new planters. This external refurbishment will significantly enhance the kerb appeal, making the pub more visually appealing and welcoming to passersby. This refurbishment sets the stage for a fresh start, and with the right operator, it promises to reinvigorate the pub's trade and strengthen its ties with the community.

Great Location

The Thatch & Thistle is located on the outskirts of Southport, in the charming parish of North Meols, nestled on the edge of Blowick. The demographics surrounding the pub are diverse, featuring a strong community to the north, attractive mid-19th-century detached houses to the west, a bustling industrial area to the east, and a secondary school to the south. Its proximity to Meols Cop train station, Southport town centre, Southport Football Club, as well as the forthcoming Sainsbury's flagship store and retail park, positions it at the heart of local activity and makes it a standout destination for residents and visitors alike.

Big Pub, Bigger Potential!

The Thatch & Thistle holds substantial potential as a promising investment opportunity. With a strong trading history prior to its conversion to Just Add Talent, it is poised to perform exceptionally well with dedicated and enthusiastic operators. Boasting 161 internal covers and an additional 120 external covers in its garden, it offers a significant capacity to cater to patrons. The refurbishment coupled with the Just Add Talent agreement makes this ideal for a community-minded operator who values being an integral part of the local neighbourhood. Whether for a first-time or experienced lessee, the Thatch presents a unique and lucrative proposition.
