The Yellovelo Bistro in the East Yorkshire market and seaside town of Hornsea is to revert to its tearoom roots under new owner, local buyer Sarah Coates.
The bistro, whose name means ‘yellow bicycle, once traded as the Copper Kettle Tearoom.
It has a prime trading location in the town's Market Place of the town, which is known for its pottery and historic Rail Trail.
Hornsea, which lies to the south of Bridlington on the Holderness coast and on the edge of Yorkshire Wolds, is just a two-mile drive from the seafront, the promenade and the surrounding caravan parks.
The period, mid-terrace property, can seat 32 customers and gained a strong local following for its regular themed nights, which included medieval evenings.
The property includes owners' accommodation on the first floor.
The Leeds office of Christie + Co sold the leasehold (which runs for nine years from March 2007) off a guide price of £66,000 on behalf of Brian and Helen Drury. Annual rent is £7,800.
