Kings Head Shrewsbury

Situated right in the center of the historic market town of Shrewsbury near the River Severn. This beautiful listed building is about to have a sympathetic refurbishment that will transform the site. It will give the pub a fresh look making it cosy and inviting while keeping its traditional feel. The pub's location benefits from high footfall including shoppers, professionals, and tourists. All looking for a great place to visit for a drink, a bite to eat, or a coffee in welcoming surroundings. The town receives an influx of tourists at the weekends and during the holiday periods. This provides a great opportunity for the Kings Head to cater to a wide variety of customers through the day and into the night.

The refurbishment will include an amazing outside trading area to the rear of the pub. This will attract customers all year round and make it stand out from its competitors in the area. It will also increase the amount of cover by 72.

The calculation of the Estimated Minimum Ingoing Costs assumes a minimum deposit of 1 month's rent or £3,000 (whichever is greater) and that fixtures and fittings (F&F) are rented. The subsequent deposit build up and F&F rental costs are not included in the rent model or ongoing costs below.
