Bed & Breakfast for sale

Surfleet, Spalding, UK



The Mermaid was originally two houses, knocked into one in 1910. The property was acquired by the vendor in 2010 and extensively renovated since.

The internal trading area incorporates a bar and restaurant. The latter seats c. 50 and each side of the wooden bar servery 20 (based on pre COVID-19 seating arrangements).

The excellent commercial kitchen (which serves approximately 22,000 meals per year) is well-appointed and benefits from a number of ancillary prep/washing up spaces. Male & female toilets are also situated on the ground floor with the beer cellar at basement level.

The first floor provides four double en-suite rooms, office, a sitting room and two further double rooms that share one shower room.

The extensive gardens include a patio stretching the full length of the waterside of the property. This is all hard landscaped with attractive seating areas and thatched outside bar, large car park, outside toilets and a storage garage currently being used as a joinery shop. There are two access gates to the river, the main one via steps onto a floating landing stage that ties four boats.

The area of the site is 0.75 acres. The ground floor footprint (GEA) of the main pub building extends to 314m² (3,380ft²).

Measurements are taken from digital mapping and are approximate.

We are advised by South Holland District Council that the outlet is not Listed nor is it situated within a Conservation Area. Purchasers are recommended to make their own enquiries.
