Full description


This is an excellent opportunity to rent a restaurant and bar in a charming 17th Century hotel.

The property is in a prominent location close to the town centre fronting one of the principal approaches from the A35 coast road.

It is envisaged that the tenant will lease the restaurant, bar and well equipped kitchen and share use of the most attractive rear garden (which has lovely sea views).

The freeholders will continue to run the very successful letting rooms in the hotel (14 high quality rooms with ensuites). Many guests use the restaurant.

Lyme Regis is a picturesque and historic coastal town noted for its quaint old buildings, sandy beach, impressive coastal scenery and especially the centuries old Cobb Harbour.

The town is proving increasingly popular to holiday makers not only in peak summer months and school holidays but throughout the year. Leisure facilities include a theatre, sailing, bowls and power boat clubs, fishing, golf and many fine walks in the lovely surrounding countryside.

The town is situated on the beautiful and unspoilt Devon and Dorset 'Jurassic Coast' awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in December 2001.


A new lease will be granted. Initially it is envisaged to be a 3 year term, at a rental of £25,000 per annum. This will be an 'opted out lease' i.e. not automatically renewable.


These are very attractive premises in an excellent location. A restaurant has been established here for many years but the tenant can create their own brand cuisine.

In addition the proprietor can provide breakfast for the hotel guests (and of course make an appropriate charge). There is also scope for special parties and functions including weddings.

Final details of the shared use of facilities etc. are to be agreed between the parties.
