Two new restaurants to open in Bath's 18th century colonnades

Two new high-end restaurants are set to open in Bath's 18th century colonnades, as the area is redeveloped.

Property agent Fleurets has been engaged by Bath & North East Somerset Council to find operators for the two sites, on the banks of the river next to Pulteney Bridge.

The two restaurants will have outdoor dining space and views of the bridge and weir. The Grand Parade will see the introduction of two new receptions providing greeting areas and lift access to each restaurant, as well as the addition of a stairwell leading down to the Colonnades.

Councillor Paul Crossley, leader of Bath & North East Somerset Council, said: "There are exciting possibilities for businesses who want a breath taking and unique location for their restaurant. The redevelopment of the Colonnades is something which is particularly exciting given their riverside location and important place in Bath's commercial history."

Kevin Conibear from Fleurets' Bristol office said: "Restaurant demand for Bath is always exceptional, due to the popularity of the city and the visitors that it attracts, coupled with limited restaurant availability. The Colonnades is unique and will offer riverside dining within the heart of the city. The image of Pulteney Bridge and the Colonnades defines Bath and is one of the most recognisable aspects of the city and this really is a great opportunity for restaurateurs to acquire trophy sites."

The restaurants are expected to be available for occupation in early 2015.
