Whilst

the

current

Bird

&

Bush

is

known

in

the

local

community

as

a

wet

led

pub

which

features

Sports

TV,

DJ’s

and

pub

games

we

believe

that

in

order

to

attract

the

local

Bushmead

residents

that

the

pub

requires

a

refurbishment

and

a

change

to

its

traditional

offering.

The

pub

should

be

a

popular

community

venue

with

traditional

pub

activities

supported

by

a

fresh

food

offering

at

affordable

prices.

In

order

to

move

away

from

the

reputation

of

the

previous

offering,

we

are

also

proposing a name change, to The Round Bush, so that the pub can have a totally fresh start.

The

Bird

&

Bush

is

located

in

the

suburb

of

Bushmead

on

the

northern

outskirts

of

Luton.

The

town

centre

is

only

2

miles

away

and

can

be

easily

accessed

from

the

M1

or

A6.

The

area

is

mainly

residential,

with

a

few

educational

institutes

including

the

Luton

Sixth

Form

and

Bushmead

Primary

school.

There

are

some

local

shops

located

centrally.

The

area

has

countryside

to

the

east

and this has many walks and paths that lead to Warden Hill and Butterfield Green.

This

detached

community

pub

is

a

substantial

2

storey

property

of

brick

construction

occupying

an

excellent

trading

position

at

the

entrance

to

a

small

group

of

retail

outlets.

The

large

and

open

trading

area

are

in

a

reasonable

state

of

repair,

however

our

intention

is

to

invest

in

order

to

attract the pubs target consumer.

The

ground

floor

comprises

of

a

single

central

bar

which

serves

the

lounge

and

dining

areas.

Externally,

there

is

a

reasonably

sized

courtyard.

There

is

a

fully

fitted

commercial

grade

kitchen

with

stainless

steel

appliances

and

preparation

surfaces.

There

is

also

a

ground

floor

cellar

and

separate areas for storage.

The

domestic

accommodation

is

situated

on

the

first

floor

and

comprises

of

three

bedrooms,

one

with en-suite shower, kitchen, lounge and bathroom.

Situated

in

a

nice

Luton

suburb

with

plenty

of

chimney

pots

and

limited

competition,

there

is

potential

to

increase

weekly

food

sales

by

developing

a

consistent

and

traditional

pub

food

providing

value

for

money

with

a

good

children’s

menu.

In

addition,

there

is

a

fantastic

opportunity

to

attract

local

residents

by

hosting

traditional

weekly

activities

such

as

a

pub

quiz,

local charity fund raising events, play-day parties and children’s activities within school holidays.

The

ideal

operator/s

must

have

a

strong

and

welcoming

personality

with

the

ability

to

build

strong

relationship

with

local

community

groups.

The

confidence

to

manage

a

strong

bar

trade

providing

a

safe

place

for

all

guests

combined

with

the

ability

to

juggle

food

and

wet

trade

and

lead

a

team

by

example

to

deliver

very

high

standards

would

be

highly

advantageous.

Experience

with

marketing and financial skills is also essential.
