A unique opportunity to acquire part of this historic building situated along Ramsgates seafront promenade.
Granville Bars, is situated within Granville House (formerly known as the Granville Hotel) which was designed by the famous architect Edward Welby Pugin and later converted into apartments.
Occupying a substantial part of the ground floor and basement this property is full of history and character, notably the grand fireplace located within the Banqueting Hall a replica of which, we understand, can be found in the House of Commons. Further information regarding the building’s history can be found on various websites.
The bar has now been unoccupied for a number of years and is in need of restoration and improvement. It is considered that the property could continue to be run as an events and drinking establishment or be converted into flats, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
