This impressive freehouse is in a prominent and enviable sea-front location. Directly opposite the proposed site of the Edge Project which is a major mixed leisure complex comprising of casino, hotel, multi-screen cinema and restaurants etc. Planning permission has been granted and the commencement of building work is imminent. The renowned pleasure beach amusement park is only 500 metres away and attracts 1.2M people annually. Gt. Yarmouth remains one of the UK’s most popular sea-side destinations and can be found off the A12 on the Norfolk coast. Gt. Yarmouth is a busy and vibrant town with many shops, amusement arcades, leisure facilities, restaurants, cafes and places of interest etc. Gt. Yarmouth is also home to many local industries and has an international port, and is famous for The Old Quay. There are also plans to introduce passenger ferries to the East Port which will link up with the town with a projected 300,000 footfall annually. The property is also in the new enterprise and energy zone. Not only is Gt. Yarmouth highly populated but also attracts a huge number of visitors and tourists all year round especially during the summer months and has become a sought after location.


The property is an eye catching two storey building of brick construction under a pitched tiled roof which needs some refurbishment and modernisation.

The Bar Area is a large open plan horseshoe shaped bar, fully carpeted with wooden dance floor and stage, two projector screens, two feature fireplaces (one with open fire) central U shaped mahogany finish bar server which is fully plumbed and can be easily reinstated and has two separate entrances.

We are advised that the business trades with the benefit of the Premises Licence (not seen) which permits the sale of alcohol during the hours of:
Mon - Sat 10am to 11pm
Sun 12noon to 10.30pm

Current opening hours – the business is currently closed due to recent enfranchisement.

NB. Important. Prospective purchasers wishing to continue to operate the public house should ensure that they gain the APLH Qualification in readiness for their intended operation of the Public House.


The property and business is being offered for sale freehold (although we have not had sight of the title deeds). All mains services are connected with gas central heating (no services tested). Business rates payable are advised as being nil as not trading and also qualifies for small business relief.


Our vendor clients purchased the business in 1997 as leasehold but in 2009 went through the enfranchisement procedure to acquire the freehold which was completed in September 2011 but due to other business commitments did not re-open and have now decided to sell the freehold.

This is a tremendous opportunity for new owner’s to re-launch this business and make it one of Gt. Yarmouth’s main and most profitable venues and to take advantage of the new complex soon to be built opposite (plans can be made available on application).

Accounting information is not available as the business is not trading.
