The building is of two storey pitched roof construction. The available space is a 1st floor café, servery and open plan kitchen. The café benefits from shared use of a large seating/garden/play area to the side and a small garden/seating area to the front. The building adjoins a large carpark to the rear. The café is accessed either from within the retail area at ground floor or from a door off the rear elevation. A toilet is located to the rear of the building (accessed externally). The existing use class is understood to be A3 (Restaurants and cafés), although the property could be suitable for alternative uses (subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents). The premises have benefited from a licence to sell alcohol in the past, but this would need to be renewed. Space adjoining the café is also available for additional covers or storage.
The café is accessed through a door leading to a lobby and stairs from the ground floor shop or alternatively from its own entrance from the rear of the building. The stairs lead to an open plan kitchen, servery and seating area. The ground floor toilet is accessed from the car park area. There are ample parking facilities to the rear of the building. Hot water is provided by an electric heater under the sink. There is a security alarm in place to protect the premises. There are currently four picnic benches in the gardens which provide additional seating.
The landlord/licensor is flexible concerning tenant/licensee requirements and would be open to discussions concerning additional external seating placed externally (subject to planning consent if required).
There is an existing commercial kitchen and an inventory will be provided in respect of the furniture and equipment available for use. The space adjoining the cafe is also available to let and will have new windows fitted to provide views and improved natural light.
The prospective tenant/licensee will pay the landlords/licensors reasonable legal costs in respect of preparation of the licence/lease.
The rent/licence fee can be negotiated depending upon the space taken and other terms agreed. The majority of the equipment and furniture are available for use. The tenant/licensee will be responsible for the repair and maintenance of the equipment and interior. Guide of £13,000 per annum for a lease.
The property is available by way of a lease or licence agreement (terms to be negotiated). Buildings insurance will be included or recovered depending upon other terms agreed. The tenant/licensee will need to upkeep the toilet, garden and external seating areas.
The current rateable value (RV) is £9,700 for the whole property (including the shop). The RV is as stated on the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) website service (effective date 1st April 2017). Information concerning how rates are calculated are available on the Cornwall Council website. The business rates would be included within a licence fee or the responsibility of a tenant if taking a lease (albeit small business rates relief might be available).
The property is not understood to be elected for VAT. Tenants/licensees should make their own enquiries to confirm this.
