A PUB in the heart of Dudley town centre has been put on the market to let with potential landlords sought.

Admiral Pubs is looking for people to run The Castle on Castle Street.

The pub could be in line for a refurbishment if the right new landlord is found.

The pub company said on its website: "The Castle is a semi-detached 1960s pub in a prominent and bustling location on the Dudley High Street surrounded by local shops and amenities.

"Admiral Taverns are looking to invest in this pub with the right licensee, which would include interior redecoration along with external signage to give the pub a strong curb side appeal.

"Ideally we are looking for an applicant who can run a busy high street location.

"Someone who understands the need for a versatile offer that incorporates all ages and the need for a strong marketing plan that caters for a day and evening offer.

"Our vision is to maintain the existing trade, but to build it and offer more to the community, utilising the full area of the pub.

"A strong business plan and a keen eye for detail is a must."

The licensee would be expected to introduce a "simple food offer" and continue to show live sports. 

The pub boasts three "good-sized" bedrooms along with a bathroom and a kitchen.

The annual rent costs £18,000, with other costs including stock and training.
