Property description & features

  • Restaurant with separate basement cafe/bar area
  • To include all appliances
  • Option to purchase 2 bed 2nd floor flat above
  • Outside seating area
Description: Set on a corner plot with an outside terrace, 50 covers on the ground floor and a separate basement bar area, this is a rare opportunity to buy both the trading business and the premises. Perhaps of interest to someone wanting to branch out on their own, or indeed an investor purchaser looking for a long term investment.

The business has been trading for over 15 years in its present capacity and the owner is looking to retire from catering. The ground floor has a large dining area capable of seating 50 comfortably, with bar, fully equipped commercial kitchen and separate ladies, gents and disabled toilets. The basement bar area (which is capable of running separately if desired) seats 30 and is ideal for private functions.

Stock is available separately and will be discussed at the time of sale.

There is also the option to purchase a large, modern 2 bedroomed 2nd floor flat above the restaurant which would make ideal owners or staff accommodation. This is available separately at £250,000 (Further details upon request).

    Broadband availability and predicted speed

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see:

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services
