Dubliners Thornaby

Lively Town Centre Pub

The Dubliners is a lively pub located a short walk from the town centre of Stockton-on-Tees, between Stockton-on-Tees and the adjoining town of Thornaby. Stockton-on-Tees is a market town with a history of shipbuilding and the River Tees is used for the backdrop of riverside events and water sports. The pub is situated between Thornaby train station and the River Tees with a variety of offices and local businesses surrounding it. Durham University Queen's campus and Stockton Riverside College, including student accommodation are also nearby. Thornaby has had significant regeneration in the last 10 years and holds an annual Yorkshire Day event in September, which can draw as many as 10,000 visitors. Due to its location the pub is popular among local residents, professionals and students and there is excellent potential for the right operator to drive trade through an appealing, great value food and drink offer.

The Dubliners currently offers a home-cooked pub classics food menu accompanied by a premium drink offer and runs a number of good value food deals. The pub has a varied events calendar with live music and live sports. The current offer works well, but there is potential to refresh the food offer and expand on the events calendar to help drive additional trade.

Positive Local Operator Required

We are looking for a positive and ambitious local operator to take on the Dubliners. You will be experienced in the pub trade and know what it takes to run a great town centre pub. Prior experience of developing an enticing food offer and events calendar will be essential for this pub.
