Property Description

Well established A3 Restaurant premises. 1,075 sq ft (100 sq m), plus basement storage.
Fully fitted kitchen with extraction system
High quality fit-out
Tenant’s fixtures and fittings available

The Property is situated towards the top of the High Street, adjacent to the Grosvenor Arms Hotel and not far from the historic Gold Hill. Bell Street Pay and Display Car Park is within a short walk. Other nearby occupiers include Holland & Barrett, Barclays Bank, Hays Travel, Mistral and Reeve The Baker. Shaftesbury is an attractive rural town situated in the Blackmore Vale lying approximately 8 miles south of the A303 and some 12 miles west of Salisbury (via the A30).

The premises comprise the ground floor and basement of an attractive Grade II Listed Building with feature bay windows to its frontage. The outgoing tenant obtained a Change of Use to A3 (Restaurant/Cafe) in November 2002 (North Dorset District Council Ref: 2/2002/0575). ‘Turnbulls’ opened as a Deli with Restaurant/Cafe and became a well established and popular venue on Shaftesbury’s High Street. The seating areas were subsequently extended by way of a new conservatory to the rear of the Property. The high quality fit-out includes wooden floor boards, central heating, a deli counter incorporating refrigerated display units, a fully fitted commercial kitchen with stainless steel work surfaces, appliances and extraction system. The main retail/seating areas also include a wealth of period features including original fire places and their surrounds and cornicing to the ceilings which all add to the quality and wealth of character of the premises. There are two customer WCs, one of which is fitted out for disabled use, and a further staff WC. The basement provides basic storage space.
