In the heart of Rugby town centre there is an empty property crying out to be used.
The Rugby Tavern traded as a pub until around 2010 and was then converted into a retail space. Unfortunately it has remained unused since then and is now part of a campaign to revitalise the building as a new home for creative food and drink businesses,
A deli, wine shop, café, bakery, micro-brewery, pop-up restaurant and cookery school all have the potential as ventures that could happily cohabit together here (like the Hill Road market pictured above).
The Rugby Tavern building belongs to Everards, who as well as owning more than 170 pubs across the Midlands, also have a successful track record in partnering food and drink entrepreneurs.
Everards is keen to team up with other creative food and drink businesses, saying: “We pride ourselves on helping people find the right property and understand that their business needs to reflect their personality and lifestyle.”
To get in touch with Everards to discuss the Rugby property, or for further information, call Mike Brown on 07860 100433. He used to run a pub and be a chef, so he knows his onions when it comes to running a hospitality business.
