About this opportunity

This is a pub with massive potential! If you have the drive and passion for hospitality and, up for a new challenge supported by a flexible agreement, then read on…

The Western sits at the heart of its community, in Leicester’s West End.

This 125-year-old venue underwent a £250,000 transformation in 2021, reopening its doors with a smart new look and the addition of a contemporary café.

The bar area received a full makeover, but the traditional charm for which is it known remains, along with its bar lined with real ales alongside a fantastic range of other drinks. Inside you find locals chatting over a good pint by the log burner and on match days the buzz of local football and rugby fans as they meet up on their way to the game.

The new addition to this venue is Café West which provides a great separate space for people to grab a coffee and bite to eat in a relaxed atmosphere away from the busy pub area. This really is an exciting space with bags of potential that’s calling out for someone to maximise.

Both the pub and café are served by a small but newly fitted kitchen area, perfect for creative small menu done well. The menu currently includes breakfast cobs and baguettes, pizzas and burgers, ice cream and milkshakes and more.

Outside is a good size courtyard, with an outdoor bar and coffee counter. There is also a separate coved seating area alongside the café.

The Western also has a fully equipped 42 seat theatre on the first floor, which is operated by Upstairs At The Western CIC. The theatre has been running for over 10 years now and programs a wide range of drama, poetry, comedy, music and craft events, which adds to the footfall in the pub downstairs.

This pub would suit someone with pub or hospitality experience who are looking for a business that they can make their own. Someone who can be at the heart of the pub and hands on in all areas.

Ideally someone who knows the area and what the pub can offer to its community, but more importantly someone with a good head for business to maximise its potential and also marketing savvy to be able to promote this great pub to locals and those visiting the area.

All in all, this is a great opportunity, all we’re missing is the right person to drive it forward!

The community

Leicester is a friendly city, bursting with heritage and culture and so many wonderful attractions.

The Western is a ten-minute walk from the city centre where you will find the High Cross shopping centre and dining complex. Along with many hotels, bars, restaurant and attractions including the King Richard III Visitors Centre.

The pub is also walking distance to both Leicester City Football Club and Leicester Tigers Rugby Club which makes it a great meeting point for sports fans to enjoy a pint on route.

More locally you will find Narborough Road, a main route into the city centre which is lined with a few bars and restaurants, lots of takeaway options, grocery shops and more. And just across Bede Park at the rear of the pub you will reach the canal.
