The premises are located on a disused platform beneath the Ticket Office on the eastern side of the station closest to the city centre.
The platform is accessed by a magnificent gated staircase which will be equipped with a stairlift to allow access for all. The platform edge will be fenced to keep the premises wholly separate from the railway.

The premises consist of a main kitchen & storage area, reception/bar, accessible WC, a large internal seating area and space for external seating.
The premises will be presented in shell condition ready for tenant fit out with power, water and drainage. The premises benefit from several period features.

We expect the premises to be available for tenant fit circa November 2024.

The incoming tenant will be expected to pay approximately £2,500 plus VAT for landlord and superior landlords costs associated with the grant of this lease.

We are inviting offers of a Minimum Guaranteed Rent with a turnover based top-up rent.
