Hopton is a village in the St Edmundsbury district of Suffolk. Located just south of the Norfolk border on the B1111 road between Stanton and Garboldisham, it lies equidistant from Diss and Thetford. The pub itself lies unopposed at the centre of this linear village, on the dominant High Street.


The Vine is a 2 storey detached property under pitched slate roof. The ground floor provides a large, recently refurbished, trade area centring on a wooden bar servery. The main bar area serves 40 covers and pool table whilst the adjoining trade space incorporates 12 more plus a 2nd pool table. These spaces are well supported by a trade kitchen (EHO 5* rating), wash up area, male & female WCs and basement cellar.

The private accommodation is currently in 2 parts: 1-bed flat with kitchen and bathroom plus 2-bed flat with kitchen, bathroom and lounge. All bedrooms are doubles. Again, this area has been subject to recent cosmetic investment and is presented immaculately.  

Externally, the property also provides 20 parking spaces and a large grassed trade garden to the rear.


The detached outbuilding is excluded from the sale but may be available by separate negotiation. This land is outlined in yellow on the enclosed title snapshot. Further details regarding the accommodation can be provided on request.


The site for sale is outlined in green. This excludes the land outlined in yellow and pink respectively. Both of these will benefit from rights of access across the pub driveway. Please contact Chris Rogers if you wish to discuss. An early customer inspection is advised.

The area of the site for sale, as measured from digital mapping, is approximately 1,297m² or 0.32acres and the ground floor footprint extends to 205m² (2,207ft² ).


We are advised that the property is not Listed but does fall within a Conservation Area. Prospective purchasers are advised to make their own enquiries to West Suffolk Council at or by telephone on 01284 763233.
