Peggotty’s in King Street sits among a string of bars that were once at the heart of the night-time economy.

The pub is being offered by the Ei Group for an introductory rent of £12,000 a year - but with potential, the company says, to generate a turnover of over £251,000.

According to the particulars Peggotty’s represents “an excellent opportunity” for those who have experience in operating nightclubs.

The pub is described as being “in great condition.”

The trading space includes two bars, a dance floor, a big screen projector, pool table and DJ booth.

“There is plenty to keep customers entertained both day and night, and there is an opportunity to increase the appeal of the site and boost revenue by diversifying the offer to include live music and a basic food menu,” the website says, adding:

“Ei Publican Partnerships are interested in hearing from those who can balance all aspects of trade and market the pub to attract more customers during the working week.”

There is also a garden described as “perfect for a quiet drink.”

Signs say the pub is trading as usual while being advertised.

Other pubs looking for operators include The Gallon Pot, in the Market Place, and the Kings Head in Acle - both offered for £20,000 a year.
