The iconic Bank House boutique hotel, brasserie and bar, overlooking the River Great Ouse in King’s Lynn, Norfolk, has come to market through Christie & Co, with a price tag of £1.9m.
A classic detached Grade II and Grade II* listed building, situated in the heart of the business quarter of historic King's Lynn, Bank House has been in the present owners’ hands for 10 years. It has been extensively refurbished and sympathetically converted, with a dash of contemporary style, to become one of the foremost hospitality businesses in the town.
Open year round, the property comprises 12 luxurious bedrooms, extensive bar and dining areas for over 150 covers, and an external decking area adjacent to the river with seating for a further 60 covers.
Enjoying an enviable reputation for its quality food, service, comfortable facilities and setting, the award winning Bank House has built up a strong following amongst locals, business visitors, and tourists attracted to the town for its history, architecture and location close to the North Norfolk coast and Royal Sandringham.
The current owners, Anthony and Jeannette Goodrich, also run the equally well known and historic award-winning Rose & Crown in the Norfolk village of Snettisham, one of the most successful pubs in Norfolk. They are looking to move on from Bank House in order to concentrate on building their other business.
The Goodrich's commented, “We are very proud of what we have achieved at Bank House in building it up to be THE place to eat, drink, and stay in King's Lynn, and believe it has terrific potential for growth, benefitting from the town’s ongoing regeneration programme, and the exciting waterfront development proposals currently being drawn up.”
Tim Gooding, Director at Christie & Co’s Ipswich office, who is handling the sale, commented, 'Bank House really is one of the most attractive and historic properties we presently have on the market and its growth trajectory proves the popularity of the operation and the demand for its quality offering. We anticipate a lot of interest being generated and can supply further particulars and information to interested parties as and when required.'
