More Information

Well Established Community Local

The Upton Arms Hotel is located in the village of Upton, close to Pontefract and Doncaster. The pub is surrounded by largely mixed residential housing, and it benefits from being one of the three pubs that are found in an area with around 3,400 adults. This great customer base is built up of families and mature couples looking for a quality local pub with a good food offering.

This is a large community pub which is traditional in decor and in good condition. The site has multiple income streams from its three letting rooms and 100 person function room – allowing the operator to maximise turnover during big occasions. The main trading area has a dining room to the back that hosts its popular mid-week and Sunday Carvery’s. In addition to this, it has a fantastic outdoor play area for the family, as well as an outdoor trading area, to ensure there is a spot in the sun for everyone in the summer months.

In terms of an offer, we are looking for its next operator to maintain and build on an already strong and established trade. The site has good live entertainment and a selection of pub games such as pool and darts available to its customers. It offers a selection of cask ales and coffees to go alongside its vast pub classic menu that includes not only burgers, steaks and pies - but also its exceptionally popular carvery.

Community Focussed Operator Wanted

We are keen to partner with an operator who is focussed on delivering a great offer for the local community and is next to none in terms of their customer service. It would be beneficial to have experience in delivering a food offer and an interest in maximising the use of the letting and function rooms.
