Pub overview

INVESTMENT PLANNED TO REJUVENATE GARDEN AREA AND UPDATE INTERNALLY. The Prince of Wales would suit an energetic person(s) with the desire and passion to grow a good quality traditional public house with a substantial food business. Drive and enthusiasm will be required to continue the hard work of the outgoing tenants.

A spacious two bar site with separate eating area in a pleasant setting between Chichester & Bognor Regis. It occupies a great location on the busy A29 with the opportunity to capture passing trade. There is a superb food offer available in a contemporary setting. There is an opportunity for growth on both food and liquor which could be developed with a personal touch of new ideas and direction you could bring. The pub attracts a range of trade due to the busy location, which produces a steady lunchtime and healthy early evening trade. We are planning to carry out an internal redecoration and garden scheme to make the most of the fantastic outside space!

Trade: Public bar & Lounge bar 40 cover dining room / restaurant, toilets, well equipped trade kitchen and basement floor cellar External: Large garden, Patio, Car park (40 spaces) outbuildings, private garden and paddock
