This impressive and imposing 17th Century Grade II Listed building boasts original character features throughout. It really has been a labour of love for the current owners who have put their heart and soul into the property. The black and White timber framed building has been sympathetically restored and re-fitted in recent years and the level of investment is obvious on viewing. In its current guise, as a renowned and successful tearooms, there is a lovely restaurant area as well as tea room and pleasant sitting room to the front of the building - currently 'The Little Bookshop'! To the rear is a good-sized courtyard with tables and seating, in total around 85 covers. These are catered for superbly by the preparation and serving commercial kitchens.

A handy workshop is situated to the rear of the property as well.
Setting this opportunity aside from many other buildings available is the quality and size of the private residential accommodation located on the first floor of this wonderful building. With five bedrooms featuring an en-suite to the master, two bathrooms (one shower) and two reception rooms, this could offer generous family accommodation or extra income potential if the new owner's wished to branch out into bed and breakfast. Lovingly maintained and improved over the current owner's tenure, these rooms offer a wealth of character as you would expect, and need to be viewed to be appreciated in full. Externally, a sun terrace offers a low maintenance garden, offering a private retreat away from the hustle and bustle of running the business.
