The Griffins Head benefits from a main road location in the village of Huncoat, Accrington. The pub has an open plan layout for both drinking and dining. There is a large central bar, a fully equipped catering kitchen, an attractive beer garden and a good sized car park. Living accommodation consists of 3 bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and bathroom.

The business offered a smokehouse grill menu which proved to be very successful. A quiz was held every Wednesday and live entertainment has been offered in the past.
For the Griffin we are looking to partner with an experienced food operator who can run and manage a busy kitchen.
Thwaites will refresh and premiumise the exterior of the building, remove the old brick built shed and replace with large beer garden. A log burner will also be installed.

Area Manager’s Comments

"“The Griffin Head is based in Huncoat, a village of around 4500 residents on the East side of Accrington. The pub is one of the premium venues in the Accrington area, situated upon a busy main road which links the nearby M65 to Huncoat and Accrington. The Griffin Head is a main road site, with a small beer garden and a car park. It is a contemporary looking pub internally with some modern and quirky features. The pub is trading as a “Bar & Grill” serving fresh food and premium drinks. Thwaites also have plans to invest in utility saving measures such as Voltage Optimisation to help reduce utility usage and running costs.” David Bigio ABM "


Predominance of consumers are aged between 18-74 and are seeking a venue that offers value for money.
