The Sun Inn is located between the villages of Brook and Brighstone, in the hamlet of Hulverstone which is elevated from sea level and therefore benefits from far-reaching views of the countryside reaching out to the English Channel. The property is the closest pub to the very popular South-West Compton Bay beach, and is near the famous Military Road, being the main road connecting the West of the Island to the South.

The original thatched building is thought to date back some 600 years and it is known that an Ale House was on this site in 1816. The bar area is highly characterful with features including a mixture of raised flagstone and stripped wood flooring, exposed stone and brick walls, window seats and an Inglenook fireplace with log burning stove inset. There is seating for around 35 diners and drinkers. The connected restaurant area to the rear was completed in 2005, and is laid to cater for circa 80 covers, but could accommodate more if required. The premises is supported by Ladies and Gents WC facilities plus a disabled WC and baby-changing facility. The commercial kitchen is extensively equipped, comprising kitchen/preparation/wash-up area, utility/store-room and an integrated walk-in chiller, plus staff WC facility. There are plenty of tables in the pub gardens, which are predominantly laid to lawn and enclosed by hedgerow, with some flower and shrub beds, and a children’s play area. More photographs available on request.

Operated successfully by our client since 2015, The Sun Inn is undoubtedly a food-led concern. There is, however, a significant and enthusiastic local following including groups meeting regularly. There is regular live music and other entertainment, particularly during the summer months. Detailed accounting information available for inspection to bona fide applicants following viewing of the premises.

The accommodation consists of a bedroom, lounge, bathroom, and kitchen, meaning that the property could lend itself to an owner-occupier setup. We understand that the flat falls into Council Tax Band A.

A 21-year term provided by Enterprise Inns from January 2006. We understand that the premises is completely free of any tie.

For sale with offers invited in the region of £19,995 for the benefit of the trade fixtures, fittings and goodwill of the business, simultaneous with an assignment of the existing lease, plus stock, glassware and loose catering effects at valuation on completion.
