To the rear of the property there is a sizeable function room. The function room is accessed either from the bar or via a separate access to the trade garden. The function room is presented with a brick built servery, DJ lighting, sound system as well as disabled, male & female WC’s. This area is capable of providing seating for approximately 50 patrons. This area is well utilised for events; such as the regular quiz and bingo nights, weddings, clubs, Parish Council and Young Farmers meetings, Pilates and as the local polling station.  

Externally the pub sits in a 1.2 acres plot. Within this space there is car parking for approximately 50 vehicles and a lawned beer garden with picnic fences and storage sheds. 

Trading Style:

The Haywain operates as a popular country public house serving quality home cooked food to residents of the local villages as well as those travelling from the larger town of Clacton-on-Sea. The site is used as a polling station, has its own Crib team and is well supported by The Young Farmers, there is also an amenities committee that organises quizzes and Bingo nights in the venue. 

The business currently runs on limited trading hours, being closed on Sunday evenings, Monday all day and Tuesday lunchtimes. There is potential for a hands-on owner operator to increase the opening hours and in turn increase turnover. Furthermore there is scope to increase trade with further marketing, the introduction of letting rooms and the introduction of caravan space. 

Private Accommodation:

This consists of a large double bedroom, a double bedroom with glass sun room leading from it. There is also a shower and WC and lounge with conservatory/dining room.
