We absolutely LOVE this pub, it’s a real gem.
The Estcourt Arms, is situated on a key route between the town centre and the mainline railway station ( only a 5 minute walk away). This ensures there is a high amount of passing footfall, day and night, posing a great opportunity for incremental trade. The bustling area consists of predominately young professionals, families with disposable incomes providing a lucrative target market.
There is a great opportunity to develop a unique menu that would cater for locals ,shoppers and workers alike. A takeaway option would work well for all office workers nearby. The area is crying out for a pub with a great Cask Ale and craft offer so this is another massive opportunity to be the best pub to go to in Watford. Sports and a great calendar of events would play a key part in the pubs success too. All of these would make this pub really stand out from the crowd and be a great opportunity for the right community focussed operator. Great customer service and marketing skills are a must to beat the competition.
Trading Area & Facilities
The Estcourt Arms need a visionary operator to see the potential the pub has . Internally, the site is split into 2 trading areas. The first trading area caters for up to 30 covers then the second can accommodate 15 covers. There is a great opportunity to offer a takeaway service to the local offices and locals nearby.
Externally, the pub boasts a fantastic enclosed outside area to the rear of the pub with a great enclosed patio which would host several table and chairs and creating bigger trade space. This is a fantastic space for customers to enjoy a drink or bite to eat with friends.
