About the Pub

The Wash & Tope is a large and characterful pub situated in the seaside town of Hunstanton, Norfolk. The pub overlooks breath-taking sea views and is very popular amongst tourists and locals. Internally, the pub has a main bar with 70 covers and is situated at the front of the building, with two entrances allowing easy access from the busy street. Several of the seating areas have fantastic sea views, providing a unique space from which to enjoy to a good meal or relax with drinks. The restaurant has hardwood flooring, can host up to 30 covers and is accessed from either the main entrance or the bar, and also has direct access to the catering kitchen. There are 10 letting rooms, seven of which are en-suite, two are single and one is a twin room. All rooms are in good decorative order, with a light and airy feel and the sea front rooms make the most of the views. The catering kitchen comprises two rooms, one for cooking and the other as a preparation and dishwashing area. Adjacent is a dry store and direct access to the rear yard which has a large outbuilding that could bring additional storage or workspace to the kitchen operation. A self-contained function room benefits from an independent entrance and this space would be ideal for private parties or events, providing scope for new business opportunities. Conveniently tucked away from the sea breeze, there is a customer area with bench seating for 10. The rear of the pub is a beer garden converted from a car park with a raised area. The purpose-built smoking solution is a modern pergola shelter located away from the main building.
