Suffolk's first smoke-free freehouse changes hands

The Kings Head, a food-led village freehouse in the Suffolk village of Yoxford, has changed hands.

Provence Commercial Properties has bought the freehold from Geoff Yeoman off a guide price of £395,000

The former coaching inn, which was reputedly the first smoke-free freehouse in Suffolk, has a prominent site on the busy A12, a major route to the Suffolk Heritage Coast.

Local attractions include Orford Castle and the RSPB's Minsmere bird reserve, which attracts 100,000 visitors a year.

The detached property includes a bar with corner servery and a character 40-seat restaurant in two sections which includes a wood-burning stove and alcove seating.

It also provides bench seating for 50 outside and three-bedroom owners' flat.

The sale was handled by the Norwich office of Colliers Robert Barry.
