  • On street parking and public car park close by.

  • Circa 5000 sqft (465 sqm) gross


The premises occupy a prime retailing location in the historic town of Denbigh which also forms part of the popular tourist region of North Wales. Retailers close by include Boots chemist, a Coop supermarket, Holland and Barrett and a Bevans home and garden store. There is on street parking and a large public car park close by.


The premises front High Street and are arranged on ground, basement and three upper floors. The property has previously traded as The Old Vaults public house with a ground floor bar/trading area plus two WCs and with stairway access to both basement and first floor. The first floor has previously served as an extension to the pub with a main bar/night club at the front and kitchen and WCs to the rear. It also has separate walkway access to a side yard to the right along with access directly from Broomhill Lane to the left which could enable the refurbishment of all three upper floors for separate residential use if so required. Each of the upper floors measures circa 1300 sqft gross. Plans have been prepared to convert each upper floor into self contained 2 bedroom flats but no planning consent has, as yet, been sought and there may also be an opportunity of creating 6 one bedroom flats.
The premises have previously been used as an A3/public house and automatic planning consent would be available for A1 retail. Alternative uses, including residential conversion of upper floors, would require planning approval.
It is a Grade 2 listed building.
