It’s all in the Craft

With the media having talked down the market at every turn, there are still new and existing operators taking on premises and opening great establishments.

Key market trends that have been making an appearance in the South West over recent months include ‘Craft Beer’. With an array of new microbreweries opening up across the region, traditional real ale now has a transatlantic imposter to compete with. Many breweries are themselves now producing lines of bottle conditioned craft beer that are making an appearance in many of the licensed premises throughout the UK.

This is just one of many American influences that seem to be infiltrating the licensed trade right across the country and epitomises the emphasis on quality ingredients both in food and drink. The atmosphere is distinctly relaxed and décor is equally so. Large national brands as well as smaller local and regional operators seem to be adopting an element of this new trend and it appears to be helping to kick start the sector with new establishments popping up in various towns across the region.

In the last three months Vickery Holman have assisted two successful local operators in the area set up new premises from initial acquisition advice to building surveys and fit out schedules. We are always happy to discuss any potential new ventures that you may be considering with an ability to advise at any stage of the process.
