Full description

Tenure: Freehold



Walcott is a typical Norfolk Coastal village in an excellent and sought after location on the B1159 just off the A149 between Mundesley and Happisburgh. The village is the only point where the B1159 (the coast road) actually runs along the sea which makes it a popular stopping point for day trippers and storm watchers. Walcott not only has a well kept beach and seafront but also offers local amenities such as local shops, cafes, restaurants, post office, caravan site, infant school and the eye catching All Saints Church. The larger
market town of North Walsham is only 6 miles away and with the added advantage of being close to the Norfolk Broads makes this area extremely popular especially during the Summer months.

Our vendor client has owned the business for the past 28 years and in which time has built up a long established, successful and thriving trade with a good loyal and regular wet trade and an excellent reputation for quality food from the local community and surrounding area. Due to its superb location this freehouse is also immensely popular with the many tourists and visitors to the area especially during the summer months. It also enjoys hosting four darts teams, two pool teams, a football and cricket team, angling club and regular car rallies and really has become the hub of the community.
With the added advantage of the excellent outdoor facilities, function room and marquee; it is an ideal venue for wedding receptions and festivals etc. The business is currently being run by the owner full-time, 7 full-time staff and 15 part-time staff according to seasonal demand.
