Asset 2

As The Amberwood attracts trade from several different markets it benefits from trading consistently through both daily and weekly sessions. The senior market primarily frequent daytime and early evening dining sessions, whilst the bar has a buoyant early evening trade. Later in the evenings the guest base is generally younger and this is also reflected when live entertainment takes place. Naturally the large number of wake functions take place during the day.

*Trade volumes have been affected by Covid-19 lockdown closure periods.

“The Amberwood is an outstanding pub and the business and will require an experienced and flexible operator. For many years it has combined a busy bar trade with a loyal customer following for food, and any operator would need to be able to maintain this and add a younger market through a more contemporary feel and offer. Functions, especially wakes, are a key aspect of the site with an ability to attract and manage this aspect a key.  We’re looking for applicants with great marketing skills, strong financial management and a passion for hospitality.”
