Five years after its closure, a popular and award-winning Armagh restaurant, is now back on the market to rent.
The restaurant at the Palace Stables – which was last known as the Moody Boar – has been placed back on the market by its landlord, Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council.
The Moody Boar closed its doors in May 2018 after six years. It has lay vacant ever since.
The site comprises an entrance foyer, dining / seating area and dedicated kitchen. The space is fitted with tiled floors, spot lighting and glazed panels with doors providing additional access to the courtyard.
As part of any potential agreement, the occupier will have the option to temporarily locate a coffee pod / dock adjoining the children’s play park.
The Council is asking for rent “in the region of £10,000 per annum” with the term of the lease negotiable.
Armagh I understands there was an approach by a potential tenant to re-open the premises in recent times but to no avail.
At the time of the Moody boar’s closure, the then tenants cited financial pressures.
In a statement, they said “the closure is due to a substantial rent increase which means it is no longer financially viable for the business to continue operating”.
