Back in 2012 a fire at Tantons Hotel, Bideford, forced it to cease trading.  From then until now the iconic Grade II Listed building, which sits on The Quay adjacent to Bideford's 'Old Bridge', has undergone considerable change with the main building having been converted to 8 two / three flats, with over £1million having been spent on the conversion works.  The former ground floor bar and restaurant has been retained and is available to lease through Commercial and Business Specialists JD Commercial.  The riverside venue, now known as Tantons Inn and known to have traded as an Inn as far back as 1772, offers over 3,200 sq.ft (297 sq.m) configured as restaurant and bar with kitchen and ancillary storage.  James Doble from JD Commercial comments that 'the building is iconic, the majority of people will either know of the property or will have been to a function there' and gives 'new operators the opportunity to lease refurbished premises for restaurant or bar use without having to pay any ingoing premium'.  It is thought that the premises would suit a wide variety of different trading styles.  Agents JD Commercial are quoting a rental of £25,000 per annum.
