About the Pub – Melbourne Arms York

This attractive pub has been decorated throughout with a modern, chic country style – whilst not forgetting its roots, with exposed red brick openings and bar, a mixture of slate tiled and hardwood floorings throughout, the Melbourne is just a pleasure to be in. On entering the pub you are welcomed into the main bar area, with the bar located where it should be, in the heart of the pub and services all areas.  There is a mixture of high and low seating in here and plenty of space for vertical drinking too. To the left is the cosy snug area, which is ever popular for those looking for just la drink or on the colder months as it is so inviting with the open fire. The main dining room is on the right side of the pub with versatile fixtures and fittings depending on the amount of covers required, however on a normal set up this room could comfortably facilitate thirty covers. For al fresco dining or drinking there are two options, to the front there is room for easily six, either picnic benches or individual patio furnishings and to the rear is a quaint beer garden housing its own benches.

TRADING STYLE The Melbourne Arms is currently a popular local community which has a good reputation. However there is the scope to take it from great to magnificent! The current licensee is currently trading the pub with a 60/40 split between wet and food and there is potential to improve this. In regards to a rhythm of the week and entertainment there is room to drive this as the pub has the space, versatility and demand for more intimate live entertainment, such as acoustic sets or open mic nights, along with supporting local clubs and community events.

Private Accommodation The private accommodation is located on the first floor of the pub and is all in good decorative order. It comprises: three good sized bedrooms, lounge, kitchen, bathroom and a study/office.
