Sitting on London road, in the main thoroughfare to the Horniman Museum and a two minute walk from the train station, the character building is a prominent fixture with impressive glazed frontage. The venue comprises a main dining area with a mix of seating for up to 90 covers and an additional area which is set up as overflow dining or an art gallery for special events and can be adapted as an events space, with room for up to 40 covers.
The total trading space can also be opened up to cater for any private function, whether this is a wedding reception for up to 100 seated guests, birthday party buffet up to 300 guests or an afternoon tea party.
There are also seven studios which are currently let out on an adhoc basis and bring in a yearly income circa £28,000.
The venue has been utilised for many different local events and been a success in serving the community, having achieved many awards over the years.
Stewart Harkness, Associate Director at Christie & Co is handling the sale and comments, “This is a very unique and substantial opportunity for an operator to benefit from a very well established local offering. With a track record of high income levels over the past seven years and further growth potential with the full use of the available longer licensing hours, we anticipate high levels of interest for this exciting offer to the market.”
Christie & Co is inviting offers in excess of £130,000 for the leasehold interest of Canvas & Cream.
