A prominent restaurant site on The Grove in Ilkley town centre that was previously home to troubled Italian restaurant chain Carluccio’s, is now being marketed by Dacres Commercial and is already attracting plenty of interest.
The well-appointed restaurant currently offers approximately 46 covers, with another 20 covers on its south-facing outdoor dining terrace. There’s a single storey glass roof 'conservatory' style building which houses a bar area, as well as a modern and fully equipped kitchen at lower ground level.
The upper floors of the building offer self-contained, four bedroom living accommodation, with its own entrance, as well as a spacious lounge, kitchen and bathroom. The total space available covers 267.92 sq mt (2,884 sq ft).
Mark Williams, from Dacres Commercial, said: “This is a superb opportunity to open a restaurant in a substantial, stone built, period building. The kitchen is less than three years old and is extremely well-equipped. There’s also a great outdoor dining area and spacious living accommodation upstairs.
“It occupies one of Ilkley’s most sought-after addresses on The Grove, in the town’s prime retail area, a short walk to Ilkley Railway Station and has lots of other popular eateries nearby including Bettys and Filmore & Union. This space will appeal to a wide range of ambitious businesses looking for central and highly prominent premises, and as a result we’ve already had a number of serious enquiries about it.”
Carluccio's is currently closing up to a third of its branches as part of a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) rescue plan. The Ilkley site closed on 24th June 2018.
Dacres Commercial operates from an office network that covers Leeds city centre, Ilkley, Skipton, Keighley, Harrogate and Otley. The firm is part of leading estate agent Dacre, Son & Hartley. For more information on Number 60, The Grove, visit www.dacres.co.uk or call 01943 885412.
