About this property
The premises comprises a two-storey café and restaurant which forms part of Merchants Court, a mixed commercial and residential building.
The ground floor is divided into two main areas, a café with traditional shop front and a bar and restaurant. The large basement links the ground floor spaces and provides a large kitchen with wash/ prep room, basement bar and additional restaurant seating. The dining area provides approximately 112 covers in its existing configuration. The accommodation is well presented throughout.
The basement also contains male & female WC's and stairs up to both the café and restaurant areas.
Externally, there is courtyard seating to the rear as well as some additional seating at the front of the café on St Georges Street.
The property is fully licensed and until very recently, was trading as a successful restaurant and café. However, the property would suit a variety of uses, subject to planning.
All fixtures and fittings are available to purchase by separate negotiation. A full inventory can be provided on request.
The property is located on St Georges Street, close to Norwich Playhouse and Norwich University of the Arts with close proximity to a number of independent cafes, bars and restaurants, and only a short walking distance from Norwich city centre.
