Full property description

Beautiful, Grade II listed, traditional pub set in the Norfolk countryside, boasting a large beer garden, 3 dining rooms and private owner’s accommodation, situated in an affluent village close to the North Norfolk coast.

Vernon Arms, Southrepps.
Paul Hubbard Commercial are delighted to bring to market this charming country pub, set on a large plot in a picturesque village in Norfolk.

Located in Southrepps, just a short distance to the North Norfolk coastline, Vernon Arms has operated successfully as a pub for well over a century, warmly welcoming locals as well as catering to the influx of holiday makers the area attracts year after year.

Situated on a large plot, approximately 0.5 acres, the property was originally made up of 3 cottages which over the years has been developed, extended and refurbished into the imposing building you see today.

After many successful years of running the business, the current owners are now looking to pursue other interests, and are seeking a buyer to take on an already flourishing establishment, who will continue to enjoy the success they have experienced over the past 20 years.

The pub has changed significantly over the years and now boasts 3 large dining rooms which can cater for up to 90 covers, as well as a spacious beer garden (65+ covers), a games area with pool table and darts, a fully equipped commercial kitchen, ground floor cellar and a large external storage area.

Above the pub is the private owner’s accommodation, which is currently used as space for staff, an office and additional storage, so the business would be ideal for someone looking to live on site and manage the day to day running of the pub.

In addition to this, planning permission has been granted for the development of two semi-detached holiday lets to the rear of the property, as well as conversion of the existing flat into a holiday let, which presents more opportunities to diversify the income for the business and make the most of the busy tourism industry which benefits the area.

The Business

• Purchased in 2009 by current owners, who have run the pub since 2005.
• 12 full time members of staff with 2-3 part time, remaining consistent throughout the year.
• Managed on a day-to-day basis by the current owner.
• Potential to develop holiday let plans to increase turnover and diversify income.
• Ideal location for events such as beer festivals, summer BBQs, birthdays etc.
• Suits a couple or partnership who would like to be hands on with the business, or a larger operator looking to bring in an experienced manager or management team.
