£365,000 Investment at Town Centre Pub

The Westgate is a traditional pub with plenty of potential. Situated in the heart of the cultural quarter, the pub benefits from plenty of passing trade due to its location at the entrance of the Piece Hall. We are now planning a significant investment in this pub to create a modern and stylish craft beer house.

Our investment will see all areas of the pub transformed - all internal fixtures will be replaced and we will rebrand the pub with a new name - 'The Fused Tap'.

The Fused Tap will need an equally exciting food and drinks menu. We believe that a clear move towards craft beers and niche premium spirits would suit the local market. The pub would suit a fusion-style food menu - for example 'around the world' small plates and vegan options.

As an operator with Star Pubs & Bars, not only will you have access to industry leading training and insights but you will also be free of tie on all wines, spirits and food lines.

Innovative Operator Wanted

Are you an experienced operator with a passion for craft beer? The right operator for this opportunity will know Halifax and have prior experience running a similar on-trend venue. They will understand how to market their business online and have the vision to create a pub that stands out from the crowd.

Trading Area & Facilities

Our investment will cover all areas of the pub both inside and out.

All internal fittings will be replaced and the existing bar will be stripped back and varnished. A food hoist will be added to link the service area with the upstairs kitchen. New bi-folding doors will be added to the frontage to open out the space. New flooring will be added throughout.

The first floor will be updated to add a brand new catering kitchen, staff changing areas and an office.

The pub will be able to accommodate circa 60 covers with standing bar space.

Outside, the pub will be rebranded with new signage and lighting.

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 at the Westgate consists of two 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.
