This business is situated in the large popular coastal town of Great Yarmouth only a few minutes walk from the beach, seafront and town centre.and can be found nestling on the Norfolk Coast off the A47, A143 and A12. Great Yarmouth is a busy vibrant town, famous for its promenade, sandy beaches and pier. The historic old quay is a great place of interest with its Tide and Time and Lord Nelson Museums. Yarmouth's Pleasure Beach on the seafront is one of England's largest static fun fairs. There is a superb shopping centre and with its own train and bus station, many hotels and guest houses, restaurants and takeaways this makes Great Yarmouth a popular place for tourists and holiday-makers all year round. For those who enjoy more sporting activities, there is Yarmouth Stadium which hosts horse racing and stock car racing. The quieter town of Caister on Sea with its Castle and Car Museum is nearby and Norwich City is only approximately 12 miles away.

Is an impressive and eye catching two storey building of brick construction under a pitched tiled roof and maintained to a good standard throughout.

The property and business is being offered for sale freehold (although we have not had sight of the title deeds) or as a new highly favourable 10 year Private FRI Lease Agreement as follows:
1. The asking premium will be 19,500.
2. The initial annual rent will be 10,500
3. The annual rental is simply RPI linked to inflation every 3 years, hence no rent reviews.
4. Rent payable quarterly in advance.
5. Lease re-assignable after initial 2 year period.
6. Free of all brewery and supply ties.
7. Each party responsible for own legal costs
relating to the transaction.

We are advised that at the end of the term, the

the provision of the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954.

We are advised that the inn benefits from all mains
services with gas for cooking and oil for heating (services not tested).
Business rates are advised as being NIL.

Our vendor clients have owned the business for the past 13 years in which time they have built up a successful community inn with a regular and loyal wet trade and has become a popular sport orientated venue. This business enjoys the benefits of 3 pool teams and a darts team, with a well supported and regular entertainments program
including live music, discos and karaokes etc and has become very popular in the local community. Due to its ideal location it also enjoys passing trade from the many tourists and holiday makers visiting the town especially during the Summer months.

The business is currently being run by one of the owners full-time and two part-time staff. Due to other business commitments our vendor clients have decided that they wish to sell the business.

We are advised that the current takings are circa 103,200 (inc VAT) per annum. In our opinion there is true growth potential for new owner operators to build on the already well established trade by opening lunch-times and offering bar snacks (subject to consent), all day and evening and possibly to increase the entertainment by offering quiz nights and theme nights etc.

Accounting information will be made available to interested parties after viewing.
