Stunning Seaside Location!

The Beresford is a charming pub nestled in the picturesque village of Middleton-On-Sea, situated on the sunny shores of West Sussex, just to the east of the popular coastal town of Bognor Regis. What makes this area truly unique is its seaside location, providing residents and visitors with easy access to the tranquil beaches that are just a leisurely 10-minute walk from the pub's doorstep.

Demographically, the surrounding area is characterized by a population of over 2,600 adults within a 10-minute walk of The Beresford. The majority of these residents are of high affluence, creating a potential customer base with discerning tastes and a penchant for quality. In terms of local competition, the pub faces limited rivalry, with only one other pub located within a 10-minute walking radius.

The pub's proximity to notable landmarks and attractions further enhances its appeal. The Beresford is conveniently located just a 5-minute drive away from the popular Butlins Resort and the bustling town of Bognor Regis, ensuring a steady stream of tourists and visitors seeking refreshment and relaxation.

In this idyllic coastal setting, The Beresford stands out not only for its prime location but also for its potential to cater to a mix of locals and tourists, offering a welcoming atmosphere and a high-quality dining and drinking experience that aligns with the preferences of the affluent demographic in the area. Whether it's a pint by the sea or a delightful meal, The Beresford is well-positioned to become a cherished destination for both the community and visitors alike.

High Potential Opportunity!

The Beresford is already established as a fantastic local pub and this is a great opportunity for a new operator to build on existing trade. With 100 internal covers, The Beresford has a substantial capacity to accommodate a wide range of customers, from intimate gatherings to larger events. The pub also benefits from space for 60 external covers, ensuring guests can make the most of the warmer months. The full external transformation will improve kerb appeal and attract new customers, both local and tourist. The Beresford is a fantastic investment opportunity for an experienced operator, an individual or team who know the area well and can drive trade throughout the whole week.

When refurbished, the Beresford will appeal to a broad range of customers, including:

  • Families with children and couples enjoying a mid-week treat
  • Community groups such as sporting clubs & charities
  • Singles & friends stopping for a drink and bite to eat after work

    When refurbished, the Beresford will offer:

  • A premium drinks range, from Amstel to Beavertown with local ales such as Harvey’s Best Bitter
  • A traditional pub food menu and coffee offer
  • Sports, quiz nights and local community events
