About the Pub

This beautiful and characterful pub, the Bear & Bells, is perfectly nestled opposite the bus station in the historic and affluent town of Beccles. With beer garden seating to the front (licensed for 30 covers) and rear, and beautiful period features within, the pub represents a magnificent opportunity for a publican wanting to launch and establish food trade. The internal trading area has space for approximately 70 covers in total and includes two separate dining areas as well as a function room, which has proven to be an excellent venue for meetings and private functions. The property also benefits from a fully equipped trade kitchen which is more than capable of producing a very credible food offer.

Regional Manager's Thoughts

The Bear & Bells’ current clientele is mainly made up of older and retired customers, however there is considerable scope for the new publican to further build the food trade to widen the customer base. In particular there is an opportunity to exploit morning coffee and breakfast and daytime lunch trade in order to draw destination customers in all year round to this beautiful and historic coaching inn. I am looking for an experienced publican who has the passion to drive this pub forward and fully optimise all the income streams this pub has to offer.

Surrounding Area

Beccles is a pretty market town off the A146 on the river Waveney; a gateway to the Broads National Park. The town is popular with tourists and local shoppers all year round as it is just 20 minutes from the beautiful holiday playground of the Suffolk coast. The pub is fairly centrally located and situated just a couple of minutes’ walk from both the River Waveney and the town’s market square. There are several other businesses nearby as well as numerous residential properties which provide an already established customer base.
