Dela in Easton, Bristol has been put up for sale by the current owners. Situated in a former Victorian warehouse, the Mivart Street restaurant is being marketed by leisure property specialists Fleurets.
Co-owners Mike Orme and Lara Lindsay opened Dela in 2017 and are now looking to explore other opportunities.
Lindsay said: “Almost two years ago to the day, we took on a tired old warehouse space in need of a lot of love. Following a long summer of grafting we opened the doors to Dela, a space we’re hugely proud of. However, nothing ever stands still, it’s been an amazing and rewarding journey, and Mike and I are now looking for a little more time for ourselves and to pursue other projects.
“We’ve decided to pass on the baton and put the business up for sale. The space will still remain open for you to enjoy, but with a couple of new faces running things. Thank you all for making Dela the great place it is.”
A new lease is being offered on Dela at a guide rent of £22,50 0 per year, plus a premium of £50,000 to purchase the business as a going concern.
Kevin Conibear at Fleurets, who is handling the transaction on Dela’s behalf, added: “The independent restaurant scene in Bristol continues to attract huge attention and we are witnessing strong levels of demand for well configured neighbourhood restaurants. The reputation that Mike and Lara have established, the quality of the accommodation and being situated in a sought after area is likely to attract considerable interest.”
