The Duke of Oxford is a thriving town centre pub benefiting from its location in between the town centre, seafront and opposite the Dolphin Leisure complex. The pub is very much 'chameleon' in its style of operation and caters for a wide range of customers throughout the day.
The Duke of Oxford opens 7 days a week and is fully licensed serving a wide range of premium beers, wines and spirits with an accompanying ‘a la carte’ menu with daily specials. Sunday roasts are very popular with 'Rythmn & Roasts' lunches, accompanied by live music often played on the grand piano. The Duke of Oxford opens from 10am to 9pm on Monday and Sundays and 10am till 11pm Tuesdays to Thursdays with closing at 12 midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
The pub provides a very welcoming atmosphere with its stylish but slightly eclectic style making it stand out from the chain restaurants and pubs in the surrounding area. The Duke of Oxford has been run under management for the last few years and therefore offers huge potential for a new operator to build on this already solid platform. The pub is for sale freehold at £800,000 or alternatively our clients would look to lease the property on a full repairing and insuring basis.
Further trading information will be provided to bona fide interested parties following a formal viewing arranged through the sole selling agents, Bettesworths.
