Regional Manager's Thoughts

This Kings Head is a genuine and exciting prospect for a publican with experience of running a destination food pub with letting accommodation. This business offers four superb letting rooms, popular with holidaymakers and business travellers alike. We are looking for a publican to effectively market and revitalise the business and fully utilise all of the different income streams that the Kings Head offers. Located in a lovely ‘Broads’ village the pub would benefit from a focused marketing strategy to attract destination food trade and B&B customers, who visit this beautiful part of the country throughout the year.

Surrounding Area

The Kings Head is 15 minutes from the holiday camps and beaches of Great Yarmouth and 25 minutes from historic city of Norwich.
