This well-presented and popular freehold Bar and Grill can be found close to the town centre of the large historical Norfolk town of Kings Lynn. Occupying a truly enviable location next to the West Anglia College Campus which, combined with Wisbech, has an attendance of around 10,000 students each year. Kings Lynn is a famous historic large market town dating back to the middle-ages and during the 14th century, Kings Lynn ranked as England's most important port and considered as vital to England as Liverpool was during the industrial revolution. There are many famous buildings such as The South Gate, Greyfriars Tower and The Corn Exchange and has a wealth of culture including museums and places of interest etc. There are many shops, cafes, restaurants including the well-known Vancouver shopping district, also an array of local amenities including schools, leisure facilities and a main line railway station with direct link to London Kings Cross. There is a population in excess of 42,000 and it also has a national league football club. Kings Lynn is considered one of Norfolk's major towns and has become a desirable place to reside.

Is a two-storey building of brick construction under a pitched tiled roof and has been maintained to a good standard throughout. It should be noted that our vendor refurbished completely in 2014 when she took over the business.

Main Bar (circa 20) Is of a modern style with Yorkstone floor, wood panelling, AWP and games machine, dart board, TV screen, fully equipped wooden bar servery with bottle fridges, optics etc and is furnished with high tables with matching stools, tables and high back chairs.

Our vendor client took over the business in 2014 and totally refurbished it. They have built up a regular wet trade from the local community and the business has a good reputation for quality pub food and Sunday carveries. With the regular karaoke nights every Friday and Saturday, also hosting a darts and domino team and possible pool team and with the benefit of the versatile facilities, this establishment could easily become the hub of the local community. Due to the excellent location, this business is also popular with the many students attending the College especially during term months. The business is currently being run by the owner and her husband full-time along with part-time staff. Our vendor has decided to sell the business as she wishes to retire from the trade because of health reasons.
There is real growth potential for new owner operators to build on the already well-established trade by increasing the food offer, hosting more entertainments such as live music and quiz nights and also by converting the letting accommodation to en-suite to attract people visiting the colleges.

Advised turnover for year ending April 2019 is circa £130,357 (inc. VAT) with a trade split of 70% wet and 25% food, 5% accommodation.
