Business


The Bowling Green is a high successful wet led community pub situated in the heart of Exeter. The business benefits from its main road location and the residential areas surrounding the property. The business is currently run largely under management and benefits from its close proximity to the Exeter City Football ground and ever growing student population from Exeter University. Whilst trade is very much wet led there is a bar sacks and food menu available although this is not pushed and has huge potential for a new owner to exploit this area of the trade. The business enjoys a very strong local and regular trade with a real community feel. Quizzes and live bans are extremely popular as are the many supporting events televised at the pub. The Bowling green is open 12 noon til 12 midnight, all day, every day with a late licence on Saturday nights till 1am.
