Substantial Historic Landmark Commercial Building in a Prime Town Centre Location.


6 South Street is a substantial three storey historic period landmark commercial building occupying a very high profile town centre location overlooking Bucky Doo Square. The exact age is unknown although it probably dates back at least 200 years. There is a brick date S.G. 1880 (S.G could possibly stand for Samuel Gundry - a prominent local figure of that time). It is Grade ll Listed of architectural or historic importance and has part coloured brick elevations with a large shop front.

There are numerous character features including exposed stone and brick, exposed beams, exposed floorboards, sash windows, stripped pine doors and exposed A frames, all typical of tis period.

From the upper rear floors there are views over the town and to the surrounding countryside, taking in Colmer's Hill.


Under the current ownership since 2004, a very successful and popular restaurant/café/bar business was operated with strong local and seasonal trade.

The building has around 90 seat capacity.

The building offers a fantastic potential for a wide range of business opportunities which might include carrying on as a restaurant/bar/café business or possibly downscaling to say a pizzeria or coffee shop. The owner was at one stage contemplating converting the first floor void area into a cocktail bar with a private member's club.

Alternatively, there is excellent potential to convert some of the upper floors into letting rooms or to provide one large apartment (planning application submitted to convert upper floors to a 4 bed apartment) for personal use, long term or holiday lets.
