Cafés for sale and shops to let in Bishop's Stortford




Three Bishop’s Stortford eateries are on the market as the high street continues to evolve.

The leasehold of Pico, the tapas bar in Church Street, is under offer. South Street commercial agent Coke Gearing is marketing the 668 sq ft premises, which has room for 37 covers, at a price of £21,400 a year – just over £400 a week.

The business itself is for sale along with all fittings and kitchen equipment.

Hockerill Street café, sandwich bar and pizza takeaway La Poire is also on the market with Coke Gearing. The asking price for the business is £30,000 with an annual rent of £7,500 for the 350 sq ft premises.

According to the agent: “Currently operating as a daytime café and pizza takeaway, the business has been operating for over 10 years and has an established customer base. The property features a dining area with some outdoor seating.”

Kitchen equipment, including pizza oven, is included in the deal.

Heroes Diner, in Apton Road, is also looking for a new owner, asking £25,000 for the existing lease including all fixtures and fittings. The rent will be £15,500 a year from February.

The American-style desserts diner, which extends over 585 sq ft, opened in June 2017 and attempted to relaunch in June last year.

The particulars advise potential buyers: “The premises comprise a retail area and kitchen with two cold stores. There is A3 or A5 planning consent and it would therefore suit a variety of different food/restaurant/takeaway businesses.”

Elsewhere in the town centre, the 2,231 sq ft Trespass outdoor clothing outlet in Potter Street is to let for £50,500 a year.

The 645 sq ft High Street premises of David Lee estate agents are to let for £13,500 a year. The business, which also has branches in Stansted and Dunmow, has relocated to Church End, Little Hadham.
