A wealth of popular tourist attractions are all within immediate vicinity, inclusive of the Heugh Battery, coastal walk, main Headland beach and communal landscaped gardens are all within a short walk from the pub door, with the iconic Andy Capp statue adjacent. You’d be hard pushed to find a better location than this, simply incredible.

The property is spread over 3 floors, with the pub operating across the entire ground floor, with a staircase leading up to two stories of generously spacious living accommodation above.

The ground floor comprises of an initial reception vestibule, leading to a large main bar area to the front aspect with bench seating along the window, feature fireplace, wooden beamed ceiling, long main bar with stools. To the left as you enter there’s a secondary bar room which is ideal for private hire or intimate functions, served by a hatch to the end of the main bar. The secondary bar room enjoys a neutral toned tartan carpet and blue bench seating spanning around the outer walls.

Spanning most of the far side of The Pot House, overlooking both the sea to the front and Andy Capp Garden to the side, you’ll discover a vast function room with a separate bar, decked stage to the front aspect and a blend of booth style seating to the rear and freestanding tables throughout. This large music room regularly hosts live music nights, open mic nights, large parties and other functions. Off the rear of the large function room, you’ll find a good-sized commercial kitchen with a series of white fitted units, with contrasting black worktops and stainless steel cooker and extractor.

Completing the ground floor there’s a ‘U’ shaped corridor through the back, which connects all of the spaces and provides public access to the toilets. Also within the corridor, behind the main bar area, you’ll find the doorway which leads up to the private accommodation, which is ideal for a live-in landlord / landlady.

The private accommodation is generously sized and spans two floors, with incredible elevated views across the sea & Headland. The first floor includes a spacious reception hallway which plays host to a large living room, a generous kitchen & breakfast room and a second living room (currently used as a storage room). As you ascend the white spindle return staircase, you’re welcomed onto a second-floor landing, which directly services two large double bedrooms, a beautiful family bathroom with feature roll top bath and walk-in shower, and separate adjacent toilet. A doorway to the left, just before you enter the private accommodation, leads out onto a large roof terrace with views across the beach and sea.
