Victoria Park Cafe - Tenenacy Opportunity

Fantastic Opportunity to Run the
New Victoria Park Café

Newbury Town Council is looking for an operator who will take on the lease of a new café currently being considered for construction in Victoria Park, Newbury. We are developing a plan to build a new café in Victoria Park.  A planning application has been submitted and accepted, subject to some minor amendments on the design.

The café will have the capacity to seat approximately 35 people indoors and a further 35 outside (with a canopy cover).  The facility will include toilets, a shared office, all services to building and CCTV, but the kitting out of the facility, including white goods and furniture will be left to the lessee, subject to overriding approval of the Council.

Cllr Dave Goff, Leader of Newbury Town Council said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the right operator! Victoria Park is in the centre of Newbury and extends to almost 50 acres. It is close to the high street, the Parkway shopping centre and the new bus station, when it opens later this year. The café will be centrally located, close to all of the leisure facilities in the Park, which include playgrounds, tennis courts, football pitch, bandstand, bowling green, a skate park, boating pond and Splash Park.”

Full information and a pack containing a proposal form can be found to the right under related information.

Proposals should be sent by noon on Monday 27 February by email to Granville Taylor, Community Services Manager (, or in writing to Newbury Town Council, Town Hall, Market Place, Newbury, Berkshire, RG14 5AA.
