Pub Overview

Located on the approach to the centre of Kenilworth, within easy reach of the town's sizeable population, the Cottage Inn occupies a prominent location and has a good roadside presence. Known locally for its welcoming nature and praised for its menu of freshly cooked hearty pub food, the pub also boasts an impressive selection of beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks to appeal to all tastes.

The Cottage Inn’s trading area is split into several sections: a large central bar is complemented by a quieter lounge area and garden, again meaning the pub has something to suit all occasions and preferences. This versatility has made it a regional favourite with everyone from young families to senior citizens’ groups, and a consistently strong level of trade established by the previous operator means the Cottage Inn is primed for a fresh injection of ideas and enthusiasm.

Marketing know-how will be essential in promoting all the pub has to offer to its sizeable local customer base, as will strong financial skills to maximise food profits margins from the well-equipped catering kitchen.
