The Stable Beds Down in Winchester

May 11, 2015

The Stable – the expanding craft cider and gourmet pizza restaurant – has secured the former “Bar In The Square” site in the centre of Winchester, Hampshire, after Davis Coffer Lyons – the leisure specialists – negotiated the letting on its behalf.

The property is arranged over ground, first and lower ground floors the property extends to around 3,200sqft and benefits from a 2:30am alcohol licence Thursday to Saturday. New free of tie lease terms were agreed for a 20 year term at an undisclosed passing rent.

The venue previously traded as one of the City’s few dedicated late night music bars under the name Bar3One which was popular with the local student population. More recently it rebranded to appeal to a wider audience.

Chris Bickle Associate Director at Davis Coffer Lyons says: “Winchester has a thriving casual dining scene at the moment and it is no wonder that The Stable – with its fantastic blend of food and drink in an informal environment – was keen to secure the site we introduced. This venue is the heart of the City in a charming location just off High Street and close to the Cathedral. The letting to The Stable as well as the recent openings of Cote, Rick Stein, River Cottage Canteen and Wagamama in the summer, underlines the demand for regional cities and market towns.

“We are currently marketing two other traditional public houses nearby – The Exchange and The Eclipse Inn – one of the city’s oldest and best placed independent pubs. We hope to be able to make further announcements in the near future.”
