A purpose built 2 storey, state of the art, modern property built within the last few years, seating 90 customers to the first floor, 60 customers to to the ground floor with an additional 60 seats outside on a fully enclosed paved patio which has a retractable electronically controlled roof, a major investment in 2018 which has greatly enhanced the size of the venue. The property benefits from a lift from ground to first floor, ample cloakroom and storage facilities as well as a cellar to the ground floor and a well-equipped modern commercial kitchen to the first floor.
Situated in a prime trading position overlooking the newly designed Village Green at the heart of Westward Ho with a panoramic outlook towards the Altlantic Ocean and the Taw and Torridge Estuary with Saunton beyond. The property has possibly the most sensational views of any venue in the North Devon area, looking north and east along the North Devon coastline. Westward Ho is a thriving seaside village located approximately 3 miles from Bideford in North Devon, just off the A39 tourist route and approximately 13 miles from the principle centre of Barnstaple. The village lies at the end of Northam Burrows facing out towards Bideford Bay, home of the Royal North Devon Golf Club, founded in 1864, the oldest golf course in the country, regarded as the ‘St Andrews’ of the south. Westwood Ho has benefited from significant investment over the past two decades with the resort teaming with bars, restaurants and many new housing and holiday let developments.

The property and business is owned and operated by a local family and is a well-established restaurant popular with the huge influx of visitors to the North Devon coast each year and also the locals and residents of the surrounding towns of Bideford and Barnstable.
The family friendly restaurant provides tasty, affordable meals with a pizza speciality. The bespoke pizza has proved very popular and produces delicious home cooked pizzas which attract rave reviews.
The venue is also a popular place to hold functions given the open plan layout and size of the building. The added attraction of almost 180-degree sea views make the Beach Bar Diner a great place to hold birthday parties, family gatherings or weddings.
Due to our clients other business commitments the business opens only on a seasonal basis however there is huge untapped potential for year round opening. We have been verbally advised that the business has the capacity to take up to £50,000 per week in the height of the summer. It is located in possibly one of the best tourist trading positions in North Devon and next door to a modern development of luxury apartments with ground floor shops including a confectionery shop, kite surfing shop, fashion shop and Westward Living Furnishing/Homeware shop. Almost opposite is the new West Beach development which is due to be completed in Spring 2019 bringing a further 167 timeshare apartments to the immediate area. The premises hold a Public Entertainment Licence.
