Popular Lake District Tapas Bar & Restaurant hits the market

Businesses for sale


Few places in the UK can compete with the utter beauty of the Lake District. 

Specialist property adviser Christie + Co is pleased to offer for sale the opportunity to acquire a lively tapas bar and restaurant in the heart of the Lake District, the country’s most popular beauty spot.

Maxwells occupies a prominent position in the centre of Keswick – a picturesque and affluent market town boasting award-winning attractions and panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.  

The informal, characterful restaurant serves up a Spanish fuelled menu of top-drawer tapas, alcohol and desserts in a vibrant and bustling atmosphere. Renovated to a high standard and in immaculate order throughout, Maxwells spreads over two floors, with 36 covers on the ground floor and 20 on the first.

The property also benefits from an office upstairs which is sectioned off from the restaurant and provides additional income, being let as a daytime office at a rent of £6,000 per annum,

James Moore-Martin, negotiator at Christie + Co’s Manchester office is handling the sale. He remarks: “Maxwells has earned a reputation for its unparalleled service and top-drawer food, both locally and with tourists. The current operator has decided to move away from the restaurant trade, presenting an opportunity for a new savvy operator to take over an established business in a prime location.”

Christie + Co is seeking offers of £69,950 for the Leasehold interest in Maxwells.
