Pubs On The Market v2.0

The Queens Head Tavern, Halifax

Yorkshire and the Humber

Mason Green, Halifax HX2 8HG, UK

Halifax is a market town in West Yorkshire. A thriving town during the industrial revolution and steeped in history due to its woollen manufacture trade it is increasingly popular with locals and tourists visiting the area.

The Queens Head Tavern is a very popular community pub located within a busy residential area with the population topping 10,000 people across all age ranges with local shops and amenities just a short walk away.  Just two miles outside Halifax on the busy A629 Mason Green Road access to and from the town centre are excellent.

Pub Layout

From the main road you can enter the main lobby area. Here, there are three seating areas located off the main servery bar, a snug area, lounge area and pool/darts room. The mixture of  fixed and loose seating throughout the open plan layout make this area warm, inviting and very sociable. Accessible through this room is the beer garden. Wooden benches and a partly covered section alongside the building provides this “hidden gem”  which overlooks neighbouring fields and provides panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. Externally to the front of the building is several more benches, alongside a small car park for approx. seven cars.  The standards in all areas have been kept very high by the current licensees.

The stated ingoing figures are correct at point of advertising. Please be aware there may be additional costs.

This is a great opportunity for a hands on experienced wet led, sports/entertainment driven all-round operator.

I am looking to work with an individual/couple with local knowledge who are willing to embed themselves into the community and who can put their own ideas into the business to deliver outstanding results. You must be competent and confident in marketing outside the pub, along with utilising the many social media platforms to attract customers from outside the area.
