The Apollo is a large community pub in East Hull which has separate bar and dining areas, all serviced from a single server. The pub serves our popular Urban menu and has an 80/20 wet/dry split.
TRADING AREA AND LIVING ACCOMMODATION
The Apollo has recently been refurbished to a very high standard and consists of a large dining area and bar. The pub also has two external areas for additional dining and informal drinking. The bar benefits from Sky, BT Sports, a pool table and a dartboard. Both the pub and the flat are in great condition and are ready for an operator to move in now.
The living accommodation has three bedrooms, a kitchen, a lounge and bathroom. It is a spacious flat in very good condition, with new carpets in most areas.
LOCAL AREA AND CUSTOMER BASE
The pub currently attracts a really mixed customer demographic. It tends to attract families and the grey market for dining and during the evenings it attracts the younger ‘night out’ crowd. It is also popular for watching sports fixtures as well as for enjoying live music.
The Apollo is located on one of the main roads into Hull. The area directly around the pub is largely residential but there are a few small businesses that the pub can target. With the pub being on the main road into town, there is an opportunity for the pub to keep the town trade out of the city centre.
The successful applicant will need to integrate well into the community and have a passion for live music and sports. They will also need to have high customer service standards to drive the food sales forward
