TWO LANDMARK PROPERTIES FOR SALE
BUMPER CASTLE PUBLIC HOUSE on Wigginton Road, and THE HIGHWAYMAN CAFÉ on A64 Malton Road.
We are pleased to announce that we have been instructed in the sale of these two landmark business opportunities, both of which are catering driven, and ideally suited to a variety of different styles of catering operations. The Bumper Castle Public House occupies a prominent position on the B1363 main road into York city centre, from the outer ring road only a quarter of a mile to the north. It is close to the Clifton Moor development, with its wide range of retail and business premises. Comprising a Lounge, Lounge Bar and Conservatory being the main trading rooms, the property occupies a spacious site with a large Car Park and Beer Garden. Additionally it has a first floor Flat as well as a separate smaller Flat. This is offered to the market at a price of £450,000 freehold.
The Highwayman Café occupies a prominent position on the A64 main road, being only three miles or so to the north of York city centre. The A64 carries significant amounts of passing traffic, and the Highwayman Café is therefore well positioned to attract substantial amounts of passing trade. It is equally considered suitable as a destination-driven catering operation, suitable for various different styles of offering. The outlet comprises a 46 cover unit, complemented by having external areas set out with picnic tables and the like, and a spacious Car Park. The site is considered ideally suited to be expanded, to provide a larger Restaurant area. It is also complemented by having excellent Living Accommodation with a 3 Bedroomed adjoining House, and a separate 1 Bedroomed Annexe. The property sits in a spacious site which undoubtedly has potential for further development. The property and business is offered to the market with offers in excess of £1,000,000 being invited. The business has been operated by the current owners for over 20 years, having enjoyed excellent trading fortunes from the business.
