The Angel restaurant and Angelique Rooms up for sale

Renowned Devon restaurant the Angel, originally opened in 1974 by Joyce Molyneux under the name the Carved Angel, is up for sale.

The site was most recently occupied by Alan Murchison's 10 in 8 Fine Dining Group, although the company has now decided to focus on its core businesses.

Clive Jacobs, owner of the freehold of the buildings, has now put the restaurant up for sale for £850,000. Also on the market with Christie + Co is an accompanying set of rooms, which traded as the Angelique Rooms. That building, which sits on a separate site to the restaurant, is up for sale for £500,000 and can be sold either separately or alongside the restaurant.

The Grade II-listed restaurant, with capacity for 60-70 covers, consists of three trading floors and comes with a fully-fitted commercial kitchen. It sits in a prime position overlooking Dartmouth harbour.

The nearby rooms are around 5-10 minutes away from the restaurant and consist of six en-suite rooms and one suite.

Both sites are vacant and both are already understood to be attracting considerable interest from potential buyers in the local area.

Jacobs originally bought the Angel out of administration in 2007 and offered his backing to celebrity chef John Burton Race, who had been running the restaurant since 2004. They reached a mutual decision in 2010 that Burton Race would leave to pursue other opportunities." target="_blank" rel="noreferrer">
