Ipswich Borough Council is seeking a new tenant for the café/tearoom and kiosk in Christchurch Park following the expiration of the current lease.
The lease is available for the café in part of the Grade I listed Christchurch Mansion, which includes an outdoor seating area, kitchen, and basement. A separate kiosk is also included in the proposed lease, with parking.
The Council is reviewing all options at the expiry of the current lease, to ensure the tenant can provide a strong food and drink offering in this unique location.
The new leaseholder would ideally trade on Saturdays and Sundays. The rental guide price is £22,500 per annum for the lease.
Councillor Bryony Rudkin, Ipswich Borough Council Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Strategy and Transformation, says:
“The current lease period for the café/tearoom and kiosk in Christchurch Park has expired. We are now looking to secure a new lease for the premises and welcome applications.
With over 100,000 visitors to Christchurch Park every year, we’re looking for a new tenant who can provide an excellent food and drink offering in our award-winning park for visitors.
As the only premises permitted to regularly serve food and drinks in the park, this is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to establish a successful catering business in the local area, in a beautiful public favourite visitor location in Ipswich.”
