Develop a strong food offer to drive all-day trade and exploit letting potential

This traditional village inn has plenty of potential. With the right offer, it would not only become the hub of local community life, meeting the needs of nearby residents of all ages, but also attract customers from neighbouring villages and towns to enjoy good home-made food. It also has five letting rooms.

Business facilities

The Sheffield Arms occupies a large, attractive building in Burton upon Stather, an affluent village on the outskirts of Scunthorpe. This traditional British pub is a community mainstream site, offering a substantial main trading area that has clearly defined areas for dining and drinking. The restaurant area has 32 covers, but this could be increased by an additional 40 covers by extending casual dining into the main trading area. The pub’s commercial kitchen has ample storage to service a significant food offer, and a strong menu of good homemade food will prove popular among local villagers and visitors alike. Using this offer to drive trade through the day and into the evenings will be key. The pub has a number of revenue streams that add to its appeal, and needs an experienced operator to help it achieve its full potential. Outside, there’s a decked beer garden, plus a large car park with outbuildings. The pub also has five letting rooms, which are currently used by contractors.

Private accommodation

One bedroom, a kitchen, bathroom and a lounge

Would this pub suit you?

Experience of operating a multi-faceted pub business and catering experience are both essential for this site. Knowledge of cask ales would also be a bonus, as the pub would benefit greatly from Cask Marque accreditation. You’ll need good knowledge of marketing and driving sales to attract customers from surrounding areas and make this pub a destination go-to venue. From a local perspective, you’ll also need to be personable and outgoing, keen to quickly build links within the immediate community and surrounding village areas.
