More Information

Refurbishment Site in Great Location

The White Lion is located in the bustling heart of Beeston, an area which has seen significant investment in recent years. In the site directly opposite, for example, a new 8 screen cinema and 132-home apartment complex are being built, so passing footfall is ever-growing. Also nearby is the main campus of Nottingham University, as well as lots of new housing developments and the head office of a large national company. As a result, there are over 21,000 people living within a 20-minute walk. All these people will be looking for a standout pub offering contemporary food and drink in a stylish setting.

The White Lion is set to become a thriving hub in Beeston, completely transformed from the dated, wet-led pub it once was. It will be an exciting and modern venue, enhanced by a contemporary interior design and stylish features. Distressed timber cladding and aged coloured leather will contrast with bright feature fabrics to truly transform the feel of the pub. Alongside this, an upgraded kitchen and redesigned bar servery will produce a premium food and drink offer. Combined, these works will ensure the pub appeals to a wider demographic, who are looking for a vibrant atmosphere, delicious food and a great drinks range.

The transformational refurbishment, with a vibrant menu and an exceptional beer garden, will create a stand-out pub capable of trading at all points of the day. The spacious and versatile venue will be able to host popular events such as vinyl nights and whisky tastings as well as more private functions. This high-quality offer will be amplified by the cutting-edge interior design and vibrant atmosphere of the pub – all ensuring it stands out from competitors.

This is a fantastic opportunity to take on a pub business that's ready for refurbishment and growth

The proposed refurbishment will help the right operator develop this fantastic pub with the opportunity to introduce a strong food and drink offer. This project will significantly enhance the business' potential and we would like to see you bring your own ideas and flair to make the most of this great opportunity.

Trading Area & Facilities

Trading Areas & facilities

The main bar area will be completely refurbished with a mix of distressed and painted finishes, establishing an attractive feel throughout. This will create a vibrant and energetic space for customers to enjoy casual drinking with friends and family. The lounge area will receive a complete redecoration carried out in line with the pub’s new stylish design, complemented with graphic and vibrant features to highlight its new personality. Further covers will be added at the rear of the pub, where the existing toilets and storeroom will be removed and relocated. The kitchen will be extended and redecorated throughout, with new appliances and equipment to suit the proposed new menu, whilst creating a bigger space to cope with the additional covers.

The existing beer garden will be refurbished to match the premium interior offer. The space will become a welcoming and vibrant area for customers to enjoy a drink during the warmer months.

The external area and signage will be refreshed to enhance the pub’s kerb appeal and highlight the new and improved offer to passing customers.

Applicants should be aware that all refurbishments are subject to final board approval which will be determined as part of the leasing process.
