Tom O’Malley, Business Agent in specialist business property adviser Christie & Co’s Manchester office, said: “With the freehold of the restaurant now available separately, we expect to see interest from local and national restaurant operators who want to get a foot into the market town which is popular with both tourists and locals and start trading immediately.
“No expense has been spared on the fitting out of this building and there is extremely high potential for a new owner to take it on and drive trade for both the restaurant and letting apartments.”
The 55-cover restaurant and the three flats above have been extensively restored and renovated, resulting in the entire property winning the LABC North West Regional Building Excellence Award for Redevelopment in 2013. Two of the apartments are currently used for letting and one for owner’s accommodation.
Christie & Co is seeking an asking price of £795,000 for the freehold of the entire building or £295,000 for the freehold of the restaurant.
