The New Quay Inn is believed to be one of the port’s oldest pubs. The building, originally three quayside cottages, is shown on the earliest maps of Brixham, dating back to the 1700's and is a Grade II Listed property. The building has recently undergone a full and sympathetic refurbishment programme and was reopened in 2014, under its original name of The New Quay Inn. The building is a narrow but spacious four storey, end of terrace property with feature bay window at ground floor level. The pub benefits from outside seating to the lane immediately outside and is less than 100 meters from the Quayside.

The New Quay Inn is situated on the corner of New Quay Lane and King Street in Brixham's historic Quayside area. The three coastal resorts of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham together form the Borough of Torbay with an indigenous population of over 120,000 and popularly known as The English Riviera. Brixham, at the south of Torbay, is a holiday resort in its own right and also an important fishing port with a colourful and busy harbour. Brixham has a long and interesting history, principally as a major fishing port and also as the landing place of William of Orange. In more recent years, Brixham has established itself as a popular & increasingly prestigious resort town – highly regarded by visitors and residents alike. In the late 1980’s a major scheme for the redevelopment of a substantial area of the harbour and foreshore took place which included a 500 berth Marina, a promenade around the harbour linking the town centre and the breakwater, a 350-space car park and the development of houses, flats and shops.

The New Quay Inn is a real gem of a pub, situated in Brixham's famous Quayside area, at the junction of the main town centre retail area and the inner harbour. The building has been synthetically refurbished to an exceptional standard and oozes character and quality throughout.
The business has been re-established as a popular, traditional pub, which offers a great variety of real ales, larger and ciders together with spirits and wines.
The pub has traded very successfully under our client’s ownership, operating as a traditional but contemporary pub offering both food and drink throughout the week. However, more recently the owners have decided to concentrate on the wet side of the business only and limit trading hours to suit their lifestyle, which has been a great success. There is therefore a huge opportunity for a new owner to reintroduce the food element given its popularity before, especially given the New Quay Inn’s first-class commercial kitchen which is ready to operate again.
The New Quay Inn is currently closed Monday to Wednesday, reopening for Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening, trading from 5pm-11pm and Sundays from 4pm-9.30pm. Again, given the pub’s previous performance over extended trading hours, this is aspect of the business which could be changed to generate more business.
With the recent boom in Brixham's property prices (recorded in May 2022 to be the fastest rising real estate values in the country) the New Quay Inn has an underlying property value given that it has planning consent to be converted back to a residential dwelling, should a new owner decide to go down that route.
The sale of The New Quay Inn presents a very rare opportunity to buy a freehold pub in this most sought-after fishing port and would suit either a young couple wishing to take full advantage of the trading position and opportunity or alternatively, perhaps a semi-retired couple looking to relocate to this beautiful part of the world.
Further trading information will be given to bona fide interested parties upon a formal viewing, arranged through the Sole Selling Agents, Bettesworths.
All main services connected to the property and gas fired central heating.
To include furnishings and equipment as per an inventory to be supplied, but excluding the owners personal effects.
Wet and Dry stock in trade and Bar Glassware will be taken over by the purchaser at valuation on the day of completion.
