Quayside pub raises sail after being closed for seven years
Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has sold the lease of the former Quayside pub/restaurant in Southampton.
The property, located near Southampton Water and Docks, has been bought by experienced operator, Dockgate Pub Company Limited, which adds to its existing portfolio of pubs within the region.
Having been closed for seven years, an extensive refurbishment programme was undertaken and the pub has now been reopened.
Richard Wood, Business Agent in Christie & Co’s Winchester office comments, “I am delighted to have breathed new life into the business through this sale, which has been closed for such a long period of time.
“I have no doubt that Dockgate Pub Company Limited, with their passion and expertise, will make a great success of Quayside and put it firmly back on the Southampton map. It is certainly set to attract a wide customer base with its five open plan trading areas.
“Pubs are all too often being snapped up by developers to be converted into housing or other alternative uses. However, it’s fantastic to be helping to keep the pub sector in Southampton alive and thriving.”
