The building is currently conceived as 2 individual units each with full planning permission:

  • Unit 10 Restaurant
  • Unit 11 Retail Unit

The unit, arranged over several floors, is ideally suited to become a restaurant/bar or family eatery servicing both the residents of Stowford Mill and the expanding town. Full planning has been granted which would see the creation of a large and unique space.

Three private dining areas have been included in the plans which feature important historic links to the Mill’s past. Access provided by stairs and lift.
