An empty pub on the coast has been sold to 'local operators' for £325,000.

The King William IV on Quay Road in Gorleston has been closed since the beginning of the first lockdown in 2020.

Liana Gatier, a business agent at estate agents Christie & Co, said she was "delighted" to announce the sale of the venue.

"The King William IV is a substantial and well located building that will undoubtedly be able to quickly re-establish its former food and beverage business," she said.

Ms Gatier said the property, which overlooks the mouth of the River Yare, had been sold to "local operators".

The pub was built in 1904 and is a three-storey detached property with a single bar and a raised dining area, a small patio with a large beer garden, and car parking to the side of the property.

It was previously licensed under The Wellington Pub Company PLC.

In August, Great Yarmouth Borough Council approved plans to demolish a vacant public toilet block to the south of the pub.
