The premises have been substantially modernised and architect supervised and now offer a real opportunity to occupy a Grade II Listed building with considerable charm and flexibility for, potentially, a number of different uses, but, in particular, the premises would lend themselves to licenced premises/bistro-restaurant, retail use, potentially a mixed use, subject to appropriate consents and approvals and/or offices with the benefit of a separate side entrance door on Bethlehem Street and a partially covered courtyard area.
The premises are available on a new lease on full repairing and insuring terms by negotiation, the ingoing party will be expected to be responsible for reasonable landlord’s legal costs.
