Occupying a prominent position in the centre of the village, Bowden’s Wine Bar & Tapas is housed in a 350-year-old Grade II Listed building with views of the Slitten Brook stream. Alongside the main restaurant area, there is a private downstairs function room, a 24-seat balcony area, and a two-bed owner’s accommodation which benefits from independent access.
Rated as excellent on TripAdvisor, the site has been owned by Lyn and Dave Forshaw for the past eight years. They have now taken the decision to sell to pursue retirement and they believe the site has great potential for alternative use, subject to obtaining planning permission.
Tom O’Malley, Senior Agent in Christie & Co’s Manchester office who is handling the sale comments, “There are a number of opportunities for an incoming operator to operate the business suited to their requirements, whether that be to change the use of the site or to continue the business as a tapas and wine bar.”
Christie & Co is seeking an asking price of £550,000 for the freehold.
