Search launched for leisure operator to take Chorley retaurant

Owners of a licensed restaurant located in the heart of Chorley town centre have appointed commercial property consultants Robert Pinkus & Co to find a new occupier for the property.

Acting on behalf of the landlord E H Booth & Co, Robert Pinkus & Co has launched a national marketing campaign to find suitable tenants for a first floor restaurant located above Booths' 30,000 sq ft flagship Chorley foodstore.

Situated on New Market Street, the property is adjacent to a busy JD Wetherspoon's pub and Flat Iron Car Park, Chorley's main public pay & display car park, and close to the entrance of Market Walk Shopping Centre.

Joe Assalone, partner at Robert Pinkus & Co, said: "Chorley has a strong, individual character as an established market town and has a good mix of local independent and national retailers. We are constantly looking for new ways to support and strengthen our local high streets and provide shoppers with a greater choice and flexibility in the leisure facilities on offer.

"Because of the property's previous use as a bar and restaurant, it presents an ideal, ready-made opportunity in a prime town centre location to tap into Chorley's growing leisure market." The 5,370 sq ft restaurant is currently fitted out with a bar area, dining room, kitchen facilities and both public and staff WC facilties. The unit is accessed from a ground floor atrium next to the main Booths' customer entrance, which has both staircase and passenger lift.
