New start for the Ship Inn

It’s with great pleasure that we welcome Nigel and Mandy Bradbury to the Batemans Profit Partnership family. Nigel and Mandy are experienced licensees and decided the time was right to take on the Ship Inn in Chapel St Leonards. They were familiar with the Batemans name through a former free-trade connection and knew the local pub from time spent on the east coast in their touring caravan.

The Ship Inn itself has recently undergone a transformation with an exterior facelift with works to the roof and replacement windows, as well as interior improvements to the trade and toilet areas.

Nigel and Mandy will benefit from the comprehensive, award-winning training courses designed to help them hit the ground running. They are keen to retain the traditional family pub atmosphere of this local pub and are looking to develop the food offering off the back of investment in the restaurant area. As well as running a popular community pub, they are also looking to develop the small but perfectly formed touring caravan site to the rear.

We’re excited to support Nigel and Mandy in their upcoming season at the Ship Inn and hope to recognise their hard work in next year’s Rewarding Success awards!
