Situated on Great Yarmouth’s famous Golden Mile, The Barking Smack has been serving a superb array of ales and lagers to thirsty customers for decades.
The building itself is steeped in history dating back to the1800s. It is named after the famous Short Blue fishing fleet (the largest in the world at the time) that moved from Barking to Gorleston in the 19th Century. Today the property is a popular pub with both locals and tourists due to its ideal location in the heart of Great Yarmouth’s Marine Parade.
The property includes a large bar and dining area, spacious beer garden looking out towards the beach, a commercial kitchen, a large cellar, a spacious 4x bedroom private owner’s first floor living accommodation directly above the pub, as well as a separate 1x bedroom flat to the rear of the property.

In the event of a sale of the freehold of the public house, the beer garden lease would be passed on to the purchaser of the freehold of the public house.
