Teignbridge Council is offering the former Beachcomber Restaurant to let, on a new 20 year lease. The property should be of interest to operators wishing to re-establish the property as a first-class hospitality/catering business, benefiting from its wonderful seafront location.
Teignmouth is a vibrant and progressive seaside town, and one of the principal holiday resorts in the South Devon area. The town has seen significant investment over the past decade and has a growing population given its attractiveness as a place to live and work. The promenade is always busy, regardless of the time of year and is a natural meeting place for those wishing to enjoy the breath taking views and ambiance of this special coastal area. Given the property’s proximity to the beach, the operation could be ‘chameleon’ in style, operating all day and also offering a wide ranging menu and takeaway service including the sale of ice creams, coffees etc.
The property would lend itself to a restaurant/café/bar use (subject to licensing) and could potentially seat up to 70 covers on the first floor level. The ‘lower’ ground floor area is the perfect area to house a commercial kitchen and ancillaries, thus ‘freeing up’ the upper floors for trading space and making the most of the stunning views. Further outside covers could be accommodated, subject to further negotiation.
The premises comprises: -
2 entrance doors via steps from the promenade leading to:
First floor trading area – Net internal Area 169.12 sq m (1820 sq ft)
A spacious, light and airy trading space with floor to ceiling glazing providing magnificent sea views to the front and elevated views of the Den behind. Exterior steps to both sides of the building. Double doors to small Balcony to rear.
Extensive area, previously used for public conveniences which will now be relocated, leaving valuable space for Kitchen and ancillary uses.
Please note that the Local Authority will retain 2 rooms for their own use as part of the promenade management (these areas are excluded from red outline in the plan overleaf).
A paved outside seating area to the seaward side of the property, across the road and accommodating up to 20 tables, will be available on a separate agreement, subject to further negotiation. There is also the possibility of the outside areas to either end of the building being reconfigured and made available for outside seating, again subject to further negotiation and possibly planning.
