Hulverstone's The Sun Inn, between Brook and Brighstone, is on the Isle of Wight property market, with Gully Howard estate agents.

For sale, with offers invited in the region of £29,995 leasehold, as well as goodwill, fixtures, fittings plus stock at valuation, and an annual rent of £85,000, this is the closest pub to Compton Bay, near the Military Road.

The original thatched building is thought to date back some 600 years and an ale house was on this site in 1816.

The characterful bar area includes both raised flagstone and stripped wood flooring, exposed stone and brick walls, window seats and an inglenook fireplace, with log burning stove inset.

There is seating for around 35 diners and drinkers.

The connected restaurant area to the rear was completed in 2005, and can cater for around 80 covers, but it could even accommodate more if required.

There is an extensively equipped commercial kitchen, tables in the pub's gardens, and a children’s play area.

Gully Howard said: "There is a significant and enthusiastic local-following, including groups meeting regularly.

"There is regular live music and other entertainment, particularly during the summer months."

The lease also includes owner's accommodation, including a bedroom, lounge, bathroom, and kitchen.
