As the community pulls together, Everards are doing all they can to help and support their business owners to be in the best position possible when they can open once again. They’re also continuing to attract new business owners to take on some great pubs, including King Richard III in the heart of Leicester City Centre.

Although the role of pubs has changed during this time, Everards have noticed that many remain as the hub of their communities providing food, drink, support, and a cheery face at this difficult time.

As lots of you are at home considering your future and having a break from what you are currently doing it gives a chance to reflect. Everards have seen seen hundreds of enquiries in these past few weeks for lots of their pubs, from people who’ve been looking at new life after lockdown.

King Richard III is a beautifully restored, Victorian pub in the thriving city of Leicester, it’s in an excellent location sitting just to the side of Jubilee Square and the food court of the Highcross shopping centre.

Over the last few years, a lot of love and attention has been put into restoring this beautiful pub to become the inviting and charming venue it is today.

Of course we know all about the wonderful food offering we’ve been able to get at The King Richard III in recent times, and whilst it’s been in the Everards estate for many a year it’s a pub they really want to see live to its full potential: “We haven’t got it quite right with this pub – We’ve worked with some great business owners who took the pub on as an additional site and added a fantastic food offer. However we’ve all learnt that the King Richard III needs to be more of a relaxed “proper local, in the city” with the same friendly face behind the bar to give that warm welcome and character you expect each time you visit your local.” says Everards

King Richard III is full of character and Everards believe that this would make a fantastic drinking pub, offering real ales, local beers and a great wine selection with a side helping of tempting pub snacks – attracting real pub goers!

Leicester City Centre continues to develop, with the recent opening of the Novotel hotel just around the corner and being steps away from the High Cross shopping centre and casino, King Richard III sits in a prime location. With a warm and welcoming bar area, additional seating area (currently used as a dining room), commercial kitchen, wonderful outdoor searching area, it’s a fantastic city hub. Its expansive upstairs private accommodation also provides great city centre living.

“We want to be ready for when pubs can open fully and offer the people living in and around the city a great pub to visit once again! We are looking for someone with experience in the pub industry, who has a good head for business and a great vision, to take on this exciting opportunity, offering a point of difference to the area.” says Martin Bailey from Everards.

Think you could be the one to take it on?
