Acting on behalf of Timothy Taylor’s Brewery, leisure property specialists Fleurets is pleased to announce the successful acquisition of the Harrogate Brasserie.
The Brasserie is a long established business that has been run and developed by Richard and Amanda Finney over a 20 year period. Located in the centre of the affluent and bustling town of Harrogate it is ideal for tourists, theatre goers and the large number of delegates using the nearby conference and exhibition centre throughout the year.
The business is multi layered, with a successful bar that has a long established reputation for its Jazz nights. As well as being one of the most highly rated restaurants in the town, the property also possesses a hotel element, which has slowly developed through the acquisition of neighbouring properties. This now encompasses 16 rooms which include a mixture of twins, doubles and apartments some of which are housed in a separate coach house and a building to the rear.
Andrew Spencer of Fleurets brokered the deal and commented: Timothy Taylor’s Brewery have acquired the freehold assets of this very successful and long established business. It should provide them with a superb flagship property moving forward and a fantastic opportunity to further grow the business into one of the town’s premier venues.
Throughout the transaction the purchasers were advised by the Leeds office of Gordons LLP, one of West Yorkshire’s leading law firms, on all legal aspects of the transaction.
Tim Dewey, Chief Executive of Timothy Taylor’s Brewery said: We are delighted to have acquired this prime property in the centre of the town of Harrogate. It has been a long held ambition of Timothy Taylor’s Brewery to secure a site in the town. This is a superb business with great potential to allow us to further develop its drinks offering alongside the successful food and rooms offer. Fleurets identified the opportunity and then made the necessary approaches and introductions to the owners on our behalf. Everything was handled in a professional, efficient and, most importantly, discreet manor which enabled a smooth and confidential transaction.
