New to Market: The Cardinal Wolsey, Hampton Court

April 24, 2017

On behalf of Guardcliffe Properties Ltd, the Pubs and Bars team at leisure property advisers, Davis Coffer Lyons has been instructed to seek a new leaseholder for the Cardinal Wolsey pub near Hampton Court Palace in south-west London.

The Cardinal Wolsey is named after a former royal advisor – believed to be Henry VIII’s right-hand man – whose failure to secure Henry VIII an annulment of his first marriage is blamed for England’s break with the Roman Catholic Church. The pub is located just 200 yards from the gates of the cardinal’s old home of Hampton Court Palace and close to Bushy Park and the River Thames.

The property comprises approx. 4,300 sq ft over ground floor, basement and first floor. It contains a spacious trade area and a two bedroom flat. A new free of tie lease is available at a rent of £50,000 per annum.

It is not known exactly when it was built, although maps of the area appear to show the pub in existence as far back as 1798.
