The Gallon Pot, in Market Place, is currently closed, but a significant revamp is planned for the distinctive red-brick Georgian property.

The renovation of the interior of the building will be particularly dramatic; wooden flooring with corrugated iron panelling will run throughout and a number of striking fixtures and fittings, including neon lighting, will be installed.

Tables will be situated within booths, which will aim to simulate a relaxed American-style diner atmosphere and will seat around 50 people.

The exterior of the building will also be upgraded with new lighting, plants and signage, while the courtyard will be redesigned to accommodate al fresco dining and summertime drinking.

Once the refurbishment is complete, the bar and grill will be available for rent.

Paul Devine, regional manager of the Ei Group, said the property has the potential to become the leading venue for food and functions in Great Yarmouth.

He said: “The planned refurbishment will transform the look and feel of the pub offering a golden opportunity for an operator who can create a winning menu and follow it through with sky-high standards of service, food quality and hygiene.

“Set right in Great Yarmouth’s market place, this pub couldn’t be in a better spot, and its imposing frontage means it will always appeal to passing trade.

“The successful candidate needs to ensure the consumer experience always lives up to expectations. This could become the leading venue for food and functions in this busy town – and cask ales are important here, too, so an understanding of good beer is a must.”

Living accommodation is available on site for potential operator’s of the Gallon Pot; on the first floor there are two double bedrooms, a single bedroom, a lounge, a kitchen and a shower room.

It is unclear as of yet when the refurbishment will be completed.

Ei Group are offering the premise for an introductory rental price of £15,000 per annum.
