Riverside Restaurant Let to Expanding Local Operator

August 13, 2014

A riverside restaurant located in Bourne End Marina on the River Thames in Buckinghamshire has been let by Davis Coffer Lyons – the leisure specialists – to a new operator Coopers Trading Company (Coopers).

The restaurant, which is arranged mainly on the first floor with ancillary space on ground floor extending to c.2,730sqft, with an impressive wrap-around balcony, was marketed with a passing rent of £55,000 per annum exclusive on new lease terms.

Coopers is an independent Buckinghamshire-based specialty coffee roaster, producer of seasonally inspired foods and supplier of innovative new world wine. Coopers Riverside – as the venue will be renamed – will be the company’s flagship restaurant and wine bar, which will build on its success by establishing a modern offer, which is seasonally inspired and uses sustainably sourced ingredients.

Coopers Riverside will open in the winter of 2014 and will be the third of the group’s eclectic venues, which include the specialty coffee roastery in Fieldhouse Lane, Marlow and Coopers Tuck Shop opening in the Bourne End Parade in the spring of 2015.

Coopers was founded in 2013 by James Patch – rower, artisanal roaster and local resident of Bourne End and Adrian Thomas – new world wine producer and explorer of new foods.

Chris Bickle Associate Director at Davis Coffer Lyons said: “This restaurant has superb views of the River Thames and water meadows and is located within the marina development. We had plenty of interest, particularly within the Buckinghamshire business community, which understood the potential for a quality food and beverage operation here.


Davis Coffer Lyons acted on behalf of the landlord, Sorbon Estates Limited.
