Old Ship Inn, Bridge Street, Worksop, Nottinghamshire, S80 1HS


The Old Ship Inn is one of the best known buildings in Worksop and has been a key part of town life for nearly 400 years.

The Grade II Listed building will be finished off by the Landlord to a shell specification, but operator specific requirements could also be incorporated into any finish, subject to securing the necessary planning, Listed and Conservation Area consents.

It is anticipated that the property will provide a ground floor GIA of about 325.20 sq m (3,500 sq ft) and a first floor GIA of about 130.10 sq m (1,400 sq ft).

There is also potential to create an attractive outside seating area to the rear.

The existing restaurant offer within the town centre is limited to local operators. In our view, there is consequently significant scope for a strong regional/national operator to create a "monopoly" trading position in the town, in a key location opposite the town centre cinema. 


Worksop is the largest town in the Bassetlaw District of Nottinghamshire with an estimated population of 44,970. The nearest major urban centres are Sheffield located about 19 miles to the north west and Nottingham about 35 miles to the south. The town also therefore enjoys a sizeable catchment in addition to the town population.

The property occupies a prominent corner position at the junction of Bridge Street and Westgate directly opposite the entrance into the Savoy 6 Screen Cinema.

The prime pedestrianised retail pitch running northwards along Bridge Street starts about 100 metres to the north.

There are 3 large pay and display car parks within easy walking distance of the property.


An attractive 'tenant incentive' package is available - further information is available on request.
