Trading style

The pub enjoys a busy wet trade. To further increase turnover there is the opportunity to introduce a small back bar catering offer, launch cask ales and provide entertainment, enabling the business to cater for all of its clientele and strengthen its position as THE pub of Pontypool. Admiral Taverns may agree, with the right licensee, to consider plans to invest in the site and improve the overall externals of the building. The investment should only further reinforce the status of the George as being the most popular public house in Pontypool. The deal offered currently, is for this vibrant pub in its current condition. The new licensee will have a strong personality and the passion and desire to drive trade from all the opportunities available.

Trade accomodation

The George is a traditional building and is decorated in a traditional style. The outlet trades from one large open plan room on the ground floor which is served from a central bar servery which offers all round vision and ease of service to all areas of the pub. The open plan room offers a mixture of fixed and loose seating together with an area suitable for drinkers or people wishing to stand. This area also hosts the fruit machine. There is a small restaurant available upstairs providing for 20 covers. This could be ideal for a meeting room and small private functions. Although there is no catering kitchen currently an investment would be considered to create a kitchen so the pub can provide a more substantial food offer however, it is possible to introduce a small back bar catering facility to offer pies, pasties etc as part of the overall retail offer throughout the trading hours without incurring the cost of additional staff in a remote kitchen.

Private accomodation

The domestic accommodation is of a good size and provides ample family accommodation. The first floor consists of 3 bedrooms, currently one is used as an office, large living room/lounge and domestic bathroom. The domestic kitchen is situated on the first floor.
