£25,000 per annum


The premises are located just off Silver Street which is the main route running from Market Place towards Framwellgate Bridge. Durham is a busy City approximately 15 miles due south of Newcastle upon Tyne with the benefit of a mainline railway station and direct access to the A1(M). The River Wear loops round the Romanesque Cathedral and the Norman Durham Castle. There is highly reputable University and all these factors draw visitors and tourists into the City throughout the year.

Surrounding Silver Street the immediate area is a mixture of retail, leisure, office and residential accommodation and there is currently significant investment taking place nearby with the re-development of Milburngate Shopping centre and the construction of a cinema complex.

Premises Details:

The premises comprise the lower ground and basement floors of an end - terraced five storey property located within the confines of Durham City just to the South of the River Wear. The immediate occupiers include Cotswold Outdoor, Superdry and Tesco Metro plus various independents.

The business has been operating since early 2018 as an Italian Trattoria having previously run as a tea and coffee shop. Our client refurbished and refitted the premises on acquisition but have recently set up a bar and this is now taking up their time and energy. The premises could be suitable for a variety of uses but could not operate as a Tapas or Spanish restaurant as it would compete with another interest.

There is scope to open the restaurant during the day and it would lend itself well to a variety of leisure uses that would benefit from the licensed element.
