Freehold for sale - Currently used as a live music venue

The subject premises comprise a substantial 2 storey end terrace building which trades as The Victoria Vaults Public House.

Constructed we would estimate at or around the 1930s the premises are of brickwork wall elevations extending to 2 storeys in height, with a parapet roof detail, surmounted by a hipped and pitched slate covered roof, with windows being softwood timber style with a mixture of casement and sash openers complete with feature banding detail to the brickwork wall elevations and low level painted feature courses in addition to further single and 2 storey rear additions.

Access to the public house can be achieved via 3 separate doors to the Nunnery Lane frontage or via a door to the rear, the latter which via a lobby provides access to the lounge bar to the right-hand side and a public bar to the left hand side, with the ground floor also accommodating male and female wc facilities and storage ancillary accommodation. The bars are fitted to a basic standard appropriate for use, with a mixture of solid concrete and suspended timber floors with carpet overlay, a mixture of carpet and sheet vinyl overlay, plastered and wall papered wall surfaces and plastered ceilings and surface mounted spot lighting. Both trading areas benefit from fully fitted timber bars and parameter seating and tables and chairs, gas central heating, supplemented by real fires, with the standard of fitment evidenced on the photographs attached to the rear of this report section.
