Property Details

An outstanding opportunity to acquire a highly successful and long established family run business and premises located in the heart of the historic town of Pembroke, literally 200 yards from Pembroke Castle, convenient to all major town amenities and encompassing a trading catchment area covering much of Pembrokeshire, to include the important power supply facilities at the Valero Petroleum Refinery and Pembroke Dock Power Station.
Indeed, the business provides a triumvirate of highly successful aspects - notably the renowned restaurant, public bar facilities, and hotel lettings with 17 bedrooms.
As an alternative, the property offers considerable scope for redevelopment - particularly of the rear section - into self-contained accommodation or apartment - subject to planning consent.

There is evidence that the Old Kings Arms has existed, initially as a Coaching Inn, since early Tudor times and the main building most certainly exudes a gentle and atmospheric medieval character. Nevertheless, the hotel boasts up to-date modern facilities, to include comfortable resident owner or Manager's accommodation.

Whilst the main building is of rendered solid brick and stone construction under a slate roof, the extensions to the rear are of traditional cavity wall construction.

The public accommodation incorporates a Reception, flexible Bar/Restaurant areas, First Floor Function/Conference Room. 17 Letting Bedrooms (9 double and 8 single) all with ensuite facilities,
parking area for 20 vehicles.
