Property Description

The property comprises a highly prominent three storey building which is configured to provide on the ground floor an established craft ale bar with a main trading area and ancillaries, cellar and WC's. The property underwent a refurbishment programme in 2021 and provides two self contained flats on the first floor each having lounge/kitchen, bedroom and shower room. On the second floor is a further flat comprising lounge/kitchen, bedroom and shower room. There is additional two vacant offices/stores. We have not undertaken a measured survey of the premises but are advised that the total net internal area extends to approximately 2475 sq.ft (229.93 sq. m) Interested parties should seek their own verification of floor areas and dimensions.


The property occupies a highly prominent position fronting the main A52, Nelson's Place roundabout with a long return frontage to Ironmarket, within Newcastle under Lyme town centre.
The town centre offers a wide mix of regional and national operators and is undergoing large scale regeneration and investment including the redevelopment of the nearby former library to create a scheme of modern apartments.
Newcastle benefits from good local road links located just off junction 15 of the M6 motorway and approximately 2 miles from Hanley and Stoke on Trent.
