The property is prominently situated in Stafford town centre on the north side of Market Square between its junctions with Bank Passage and Gaolgate Street. Nationally known multiples in the vicinity include branches of SANTANDER, BARCLAYS, HSBC, LLOYDS, BOOTS, HOLLAND AND BARRATT, THE BODY SHOP and WH SMITH.
The premises form part of an impressive three-storey Grade II listed neo-classical revival style building with a Portland Stone façade enlarged by way of a flat-roofed extension with a domed rooflight at the rear and providing accommodation arranged on the ground and mezzanine floors.
The property was refurbished some years ago, having originally functioned as a branch of the National Westminster Bank, to provide a licensed Pizza Express restaurant with capacity for approximately ninety covers and is now offered as a fully fitted trading entity complete with cooking equipment including pizza ovens and furniture.
The availability therefore offers an ideal opportunity for a restaurateur to acquire a town centre presence in an attractive piazza setting with outside seating during business hours subject to the obtaining of the relevant pavement licence.
