A POPULAR cafe is on the market in a Herefordshire town.

Flowerdew's in Bromyard's Market Square is in a prime town centre position, said marketing agents Barry Bufton.

The Grade II listed building has a spectacular half-timbered front with a wealth of exposed half-timbered walls and ceiling beams and is on the market for offers in the region of £375,000.

Over the years has been a vinegar distillery, home of a surgeon and apothecary, the towns library, and the home, studio and business of a renowned local artist. For a number of years the business has been 'Flowerdew's', a tearoom and gift shop.

The tearoom has exposed oak floor boards, exposed ceiling timbers and a feature dividing oak half-timbered frame with some wattle and three bow windows facing the market square.

To the rear is a courtyard style garden with decking while on the first and second floors there is a spacious three-bedroom apartment with a staircase leading to a ground floor hall and its own access from the lower rear garden area with steps to a car parking space in Sherford Street.

The property is offered as a 'going concern' and the equipment in the tearoom, kitchen and garden are all available by separate negotiation.
