Job Description:

The Royal Oak is a Grade II listed public house on Newport Road in the Adamsdown /Roath area of Cardiff, Wales.
A large pub in the triangle of Broadway with a number of rooms and a reasonable sized garden
The pub dates from the late 19th century. In the early part of the 20th century it was run by a cousin of the boxer, Jim Driscoll, who on his death bequeathed his Lonsdale Belt to the pub. The pub developed a boxing theme, with memorabilia on the walls and, unusually, a professional boxing gym above the function room.
In the 1980s the Royal Oak had a vibrant rock and punk music scene.
In 2010 the Royal Oak was the only Cardiff pub to make it onto list of the Top 100 Famous UK pubs, compiled by whisky maker Famous Grouse.


Entering from the side door you can turn right into the main bar area which has a full length bar to the left hand side leading to the front doors. Large windows and boxing memorabilia fills the room. -
Cross to the other side and there is the snug, a cosy room with more memorabilia. Head towards the back and there is a little area with one table and access to the bar. -
Further down and you reach a crossroads - left leads you back to the side door and the function room where community groups meet and live bands play. To the right leads you to the toilets, office and kitchen area. Straight ahead and you are out into the garden which is mainly laid to lawn with a large brick wall at the far end. A fantastic sun trap that attracts the locals in the Summer. - Private accommodation: Upstairs in the private accommodation are 3 double bedrooms, a kitchen, bathroom and large living room. The old gym makes a large storage room.

Broadway is in Roath a prosperous area of Cardiff. The postcode is within the Adamsdown ward/electoral division. -
Most of the local housing is terraced housing that has been converted into flats. - The Opportunity Let your big ideas for your own pub run free as a foundation partner. Your earnings will be based on a percentage of weekly drinks sales, but you'll have the flexibility to choose the food you offer and keep every penny of food sales! It's the chance to:

  • Leave your old life behind and be your own boss
  • Commit to five of the most exciting years you'll have ever worked
  • Live rent-free in the pub
  • Take home 30% of weekly drinks sales
  • Keep 100% of the money you make on food
  • Keep 50% of the profits from any gaming machines

    You'll need to put in a -5k deposit, plus legal fees and cover your own insurance (except building insurance, which we'll pay for). Also, you'll want to start thinking about your team; taking care of paying them and all other employment matters. We're on-hand to offer guidance as you plan your business overheads, like business rates (and your own residential Council Tax). Also, start thinking about any internal repairs and decoration you'd like to do to bring the place up to standard and committing to an annual decorating fund.

    Before we all sign the agreement and see you heading into a whole new life, you'll just need to show us proof that you've had independent financial advice from an accountant and solicitor, as dictated by the Statutory Pub Code. And, of course, obtain your personal licence (which we'll help with) and complete your induction training.

    It's a five-year commitment, so you have loads of time to build the business and get it performing brilliantly. Call
