More Information

Complete refurbishment planned

An extensive refurbishment at the Windmill in the quaint village of Burgess Hill will transform the pub into a premium local. The works will include a complete redecoration and refurbishment to the indoor and outdoor trading spaces. We will be upgrading the main trading area, with new flooring and decorations. We will also be enhancing the bar servery and back bar and upgrading the toilets with new vanity units.


Externally, we will be rejuvenating the garden space, forming a new attractive seating area. The pub will receive a face-lift with brand new signage, enhancing its kerb appeal and attracting in passing trade and locals.


Community focused area

The pub itself is located in Burgess Hill. Burgess Hill is located in East Sussex, on the edge of the South Downs National Park.  The Windmill is situated next to a large supermarket, with potential for people to stop in after shopping. The pub benefits from good demographics, with high affluence bands and 13,500 adults living within a 20-minute walk time.


A pub with huge potential

Within a ten-minute walk time of the pub, there is only one other competitor pub. The potential to invest in this pub will allow for a step change to where it sits in the market and make it stand out from the limited competition. This pub would work for an experienced operator, but also someone looking to take their first site. The focus will be on quality drinks trade, supported by sports/events and accompanied by a quality food offering. It will boast 53 dedicated covers indoors and has space for 146 covers in its extensive outside trading areas. All we’re looking for is the right operator...
