Offers Invited


The Former Colonial Bar sits on a plot extending to 0.14 hectares and is located on the north-western side of Portsmouth Road, approximately 700m north of the junction between Catherington Lane, Portsmouth Road and the B2149 which provides direct access onto the A3M.  The immediate area is primarily residential, however some commercial and light industrial units can be found on the opposite side of Portsmouth Road.  The land is flat and lies outside the Environment Agency Flood Plain.  The site is being offered for sale on a freehold basis.

The Colonial Bar itself was demolished in 2016 by the current owners and is now dominated by hardstanding however there are a number of trees on the site that are subject to Tree Preservation Orders.


The property remains in A4 Use Class (Drinking Establishment), however it may be suitable for alternative uses subject to planning.  A planning application was submitted in 2016 for the redevelopment of the site to provide 9 flats, but was refused by the Local Authority in December 2016.


We believe that all main services are located in the vicinity of the site; however prospective purchasers should make their own enquiries with the appropriate service providers.


The site is located on the A3, Portsmouth Road in Horndean, which is conveniently located close to major strategic road networks, and in close proximity to Portsmouth, Southampton and the wider south coast.
