The premises are located on the main approach road to the seafront within approximately 200 yards of the first set of traffic lights from the town after approaching the town from Barnstaple. The property is opposite a launderette and within level walking distance of the seafront and close to Wilder Road car park, therefore very accessible fronting the main road and ideal for passing customers. Ilfracombe has a population of some 10,500 inhabitants boosted during the summer with the influx of tourists. The town is fast becoming a premier destination and in recent years developments have included the construction of the new Landmark theatre, the enhancement and refurbishment of the pier and Quay Head. In addition the international renowned artist Damien Hirst has acquired a property on the main quay and converted the premises into a premier restaurant. A consequence of this has been to obtain maximum publicity in the national press through editorial for the resort and placed the town on the map.
The premises are held on the balance of a 21 year lease granted in July 2006 at a current rent payable of £8,000 per annum on full repair and insuring terms. An incoming tenant will need to provide the usual bank and trade references for landlord's approval.
