16TH CENTURY COVENTRY RESTAURANT SET TO MAXIMISE ON CITY OF CULTURE STATUS

An historical Coventry building dating back to the 1500s has been placed on the market, poised to resurrect itself as a restaurant to capitalise on the City of Culture status the city is enjoying.

The 16th Century building, 21 Spon Street, was relocated to Much Park Street after the second world war as part of a national move to protect any surviving timber buildings that survived the bombings, before being moved again in the 1980s.

The locally listed building, which has a total floor area of 2,281 sq ft, has now undergone a change of use process and is being marketed as a restaurant.

David Walton, Director of Harris Lamb’s Retail team, who is overseeing the sale, said: “This is one of the most attractive instructions we’ve ever had, and we’re confident it is going to attract a lot of interest.

“With Coventry having been awarded the City of Culture 2021, investors and businesses are keen to capitalise on the city’s strong position, and its location, teamed with its history, makes this a great acquisition.

“The building is ready for immediate occupation, and there is plenty of scope to maximise the history of the building as part of its charm.”
