Chestnut Hospitality acquires The Wiveton Bell

The addition of The Wiveton Bell to the Chestnut portfolio is reportedly the latest acquisition in the last 18 months and offers AA 4-star accommodation

East Anglia hospitality company Chestnut has announced the acquisition of The Wiveton Bell in North Norfolk. 

The pub is reportedly situated a few miles inland from the coastline and is said to be one of the area’s leading food destinations for the last 10 years, offering Michelin-rated Bib Gourmand dining. 

The venue also has AA 4-star accommodations in “relaxed and welcoming” surroundings. 

The addition of The Wiveton Bell to the Chestnut portfolio is reportedly the latest acquisition in the last 18 months, as the company has already acquired The Feathers and The Lawns in Holt, as well as The Maltings in Weybourne. 

Philip Turner, founder and managing director of Chestnut, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have acquired one of Norfolk’s best-loved dining pubs. We believe that North Norfolk is one of the region’s leading tourism destinations and have brought a number of new locations into the Chestnut fold recently. 

“This acquisition is great news for Chestnut and great news for people who already love the pub, as we don’t plan on changing a winning formula. Our model has always been about acquiring new properties in popular destinations, bringing in new investment and allowing the quality of the Chestnut experience to shine through. We are confident this formula will enable the pub to maintain and grow its already outstanding reputation.”

He added: “In the last 24-months we’ve been very focused on Norfolk as an area for growth and see the potential to offer outstanding hospitality to the local community and visitors alike. With this latest addition we now have five locations along the coastline, stretching from Holt to Wells, and hope our investments continue to enhance the tourism offer in the area, employment opportunities and support the communities we operate in.”
