Wimbledon pub set for volley of rental offers
Wimbledon Village is a market that many businesses would like to tap into – and now the lease on a well-known pub on the High Street has become available they have a chance of a grand slam.
The ground-floor and basement of The Brewery Tap, SW19, are being offered as a self-contained lock-up unit with a frontage of 10.7 metres (36 feet). The trade floor covers approximately 86 square metres (930 square feet) and the cellar 24 square metres (260 square feet).
The unit is currently functioning as a traditional local pub but it has consent for A1, A2, A3 and A4 use and planning permission for a theatre-style kitchen to the rear and relocation of the toilets to the basement.
“Wimbledon Village is a well-heeled area with a lot of cachet and this is a flexible property that would suit a number of uses. So we are anticipating considerable interest from potential tenants,” says James Grimes of licensed leisure specialists AG&G, who are dealing with the rental.
“It would particularly suit a new life as a restaurant or boutique, or even a financial services outlet. But it could be just as successful continuing as a pub.”
The Brewery Tap is in a mixed residential and retail position in the heart of Wimbledon Village on a site that has been occupied by a pub since 1832. It has separate residential accommodation above, which is not included in the lease.
It is currently licensed to sell alcohol from 10am to 11pm Sunday to Thursday and from 10 am to midnight on Friday and Saturday. The rateable value is £33,300.
A high five-figure or low six-figure rent is being sought, in line with the local market.
