Description

4 Mount Folly Square is part of the historic centre of Bodmin. Once a Georgian town house, it was completely renovated, and set up as a restaurant in June 2014, aiming to fill a gap at the upper end of the market.

Bosvena offers a superb opportunity for an operator or partnership team to reopen this beautifully presented restaurant.

Location

Bosvena is located in Bodmin, an attractive historic town in mid-Cornwall. It was once the county town of Cornwall and is currently seeing significant growth in the residential, commercial and infra-structural sectors, bringing increasing wealth and prosperity to the town. With plenty of niche retailers, Bodmin is also now attracting national retailers. The town is recognized for its great transport links: only a few minutes from the A30 and A38, it also boasts a main line railway station , with Paddington less than four hours away. Bodmin itself is undergoing significant improvement to the town centre, which will provide an attractive townscape and establish Bodmin as the cycle capital of Cornwall, linking various cycle trails in the surrounding area.

Internal Details

The main access to Bosvena is on Mount Folly Square. As you enter the hallway, there is a room to the right with c. 10 covers and a gas stove, which lends itself to a private function room.
On the left is an open seating/bar area which currently takes around 15 covers. At the rear of this area is access to the ground floor pastry kitchen. There is a disabled WC and baby-changing area.

The hall and pastry kitchen both access the courtyard, where there is a secondary entrance from Turf Street. On the first floor is the main restaurant area, with 36 covers, a bar, two WCs and a fully fitted commercial kitchen.

The second floor has a private dining/meeting room with 10 covers (currently set to seat eight), an office, staff room and two store rooms. The second floor could potentially be converted into owners' accommodation if desired.

Fixtures & Fittings

Trade fixtures and fittings are to be purchased at an additional cost.

Tenure

Our client is offering to sell the freehold or set up a new lease at a proposed rent of £25,000 per annum with terms to be agreed.

External Details

Through the hallway to the rear is a door to the courtyard.There are currently 20 covers and there is access to the first floor kitchen via outdoor stairs. A purpose-built store houses a walk-in fridge, wine store, freezer and general storage, plus a cupboard for bins. The secondary access from Turf Street, under a wisteria-clad pergola, is used for deliveries as well as by the public.

The Opportunity

4 Mount Square represents a wonderful opportunity to trade a recently refurbished restaurant, which enjoys an enviable trading position overlooking the square in the heart of the historic market town of Bodmin. The building could suit a variety of uses including restaurant, bar, retail or office (subject to planning permission).

The business established itself over two years and half years, and earned a fabulous reputation, both locally and far afield, for quality food and great service which has helped sales grow steadily. It was run by our client, part-time, with a mix of full-time and part-time staff. Bosvena would also lend itself to the prospect of a partnership team wanting to be more involved in the day to day running of the business, reducing costs considerably. The business is currently closed.
