Shepherd partner Kevin Bell said: “Bridges Bar is a family run business, and the owner has reluctantly decided to sell due to his impending retirement, having operated the business for 46 years, building up a loyal clientele during that time.

“Bridges Bar is a traditional wet sales led single bar operation which has generated consistent profits year upon year with current figures at pre Covid levels.”

Having initially being marketed at offers over £265,000, offers over £235,000 are now invited.

Interested parties should contact the sole selling agent on 01292 267987.
