Westgate Halifax

Exciting Refurbishment Planned

Situated on a busy shopping street, The Westgate holds a prominent corner position on the busy Union Road in Halifax. Due to this location, there is ample opportunity for passing trade - the Piece Hall and a newly announced shopping development are nearby.

Once refurbished, The Westgate will be a characterful bar enhanced by quirky details that will appeal to a new, younger demographic. It will also accommodate larger groups due to its eclectic mix of seating. The new kitchen on site will allow for a strong food offer to be introduced - sharing platters and premium drinks will appeal to the new target market of groups of celebrating females and students alike.

Ambitious Local Operator Wanted

The ideal operator for the Westgate will have a good level of local knowledge and be able to work closely with the local community in person and through social media. You will have a clear vision of your pub's identity and be driven to build your business into a popular hot spot of the town centre.

The Westgate has no dedicated car park with the pub but there is off street parking available.
