The Abingdon Wantage is a rapidly expanding Oxfordshire market town in the Vale of the White Horse with benefitting from a huge expansion plan including the building of thousands of new homes, not surprising as Wantage won the award for Britain’s best town centre in 2014. The birthplace of Alfred the Great, this vibrant town has every conceivable amenity, with one state secondary school, King Alfred’s Academy, which is spread over three campuses, and some ten primary schools. The secondary school recently converted into an academy is currently rated outstanding. The town is in easy reach of the M4, Oxford and Swindon and a mainline station to London, Bristol and Cardiff are just 8 miles away in nearby Didcot.

Pub Layout

The pub is an attractive looking building with a single bar servery split over two levels providing seating for approximately 40, but this could be easily increased with added furnishings. There is a car park providing spaces for 20 vehicles and a good size beer garden, making it ideal for families in the warmer months. In the large beer garden, there is an Aunt Sally throw and currently, there are Aunt Sally teams as well as dominoes, crib, darts teams and a regular quiz night.x

Abingdon Arms Wantage

The vision is that the Abingdon Arms Wantage will be invested in to ensure that the pub is well-positioned for the future whilst leveraging its enviable community-based spirit and really making the most of the pubs stunning edge of town centre outside areas and garden space. The ideal operator will possess the vision and skills to develop and deliver a compelling operational plan that differentiates the pub from its competitors and offers daily reasons to visit. The opportunities in relation to the basic offer are endless and exciting, there is potential for a small niche food offer, the extension of trading hours, upgrading of the draught product range and the introduction of premium spirits. These elements of the development will need to sit alongside the friendly, operator generated ambience and atmosphere. Reasons to visit can be driven through the introduction of a  tried and tested methods such as televised sport and driving more community-based evenings such as quiz nights and Bingo, but the pub is going to also require some unique operator driven reasons to drive visits that will set the Abingdon Arms apart from the crowd. However there is lots to play with here to make this happen, The Abingdon Arms possesses one of the most perfectly formed outside areas in the town and this will be critical to business success and development here could and should, include the introduction of a quality weather protection solution and activities such as cider and beer festivals.  The pub benefits from not currently attracting business rates and will be let furnished with its current inventory.
