Rare freehold with all fixtures and fittings available. First time the restaurant has hit the market in over 15 years.
The property is located on a corner site where the High Street meets Sherborne Street. It is Grade II listed and falls under the Cotswold AONB and within the Bourton-on-the-Water Conservation Area. Windrush Restaurant was historically a mid-19th Century house, constructed of coursed rubble Cotswold stone walls and hipped welsh slate roofs with generous eaves, typical of its period. Some important features include high quality ashlar stone surrounds to doors and windows, some sash windows and a large arch headed stair window to the rear with attractive margined and curved glazing divisions. The building has been extensively altered and renovated to form the existing restaurant, with an adjacent fish and chip shop, and bakery/pizzeria, along with first floor accommodation. The property underwent an extensive redesign and refurbishment in 2017. Work to the trading areas was overseen by a professional architect and design team and has been finished to a very high standard. The building has been split into three separate trading units with the restaurant and café accessed off Sherborne Street. Upon entering the restaurant there is a bar/café servery with seating to the left of the entrance. There is a function/over-spill area to the right. The restaurant kitchen and WC’s are located to the rear. An internal corridor links to the other two units which are accessed off the High Street, but are clearly capable of future integration. The bakery and fish and chip shop are similar in size and share a high specification commercial kitchen to the rear. There are two external trade gardens. The first is associated with the restaurant and is accessed from Sherborne Street. This provides 125 covers attractively enclosed with paving and lawned area with attractive wrought-iron furniture scattered throughout, over-looking the river. The second trade garden is not enclosed but still falls within the freehold demise and provides wooden benches with seating for approximately 170 customers. In addition to the above there is car and delivery access off Sherborne Street with parking available, leading to a courtyard. Beyond this area is the refrigeration, storage and refuse areas associated with the restaurant.
For a formal viewing, strictly by appointment with Savills. The business has been closed since lockdown and does not intend to re-open until social distancing measures have been removed.
