A Congleton pub is looking for a new publican. 

The Railway Inn in Hightown is being advertised by Star Pubs who says it is "a well-established pub on a major thoroughfare and opposite a busy station".

The pub is being offered with an annual rent of £23,745 and further details can be found here. 

The details say the pub in Biddulph Road is in the 'picturesque' market town of Congleton. "The town has a population of around 26,900 and is well known for its festivals with over 150 local organisations and groups," say the details. 

"There are nearly 7,000 adults living within a 20-minute walk and it is positioned within a residential area of predominantly high affluence, making this a lucrative opportunity for the incoming licensee to capitalise on. 

"The Congleton train station is a short distance away, taking only two minutes to walk from the pub. 

"The pub benefits from being one of two pubs found in an area of around 2,000 adults.  The Railway appeals to a broad range of customers in the local area as well as being a destination venue for diners.   

"The pub will predominantly appeal to locals that reside within Congleton however the car park provides the facility for a wider draw of customers.  With the variety on offer in the pub, it will appeal to young families, families with teenagers, couples and mixed friend groups." 

Star Pubs say they are offering The Railway on its 'foundation tenancy agreement'. "The site currently has the ability to drive trade via great traditional pub food, live sports and occasional live entertainment. It offers a selection of popular beers, ciders, wines and spirits, cask ales, and coffees," say Star Pubs.
