JD Wetherspoon has acquired the freehold of substantial leisure unit in Weston-super-Mare, which will be its second pub in the Somerset seaside resort. The managed pub group has purchased Cabot 5 Bars for an undisclosed sum. Christie & Co, the leisure property agency, handled the sale on behalf of its private owners. Occupying a prominent seafront corner position, Cabot 5 Bars is a substantial Victorian property, comprising several four-storey buildings, which are occupied as a single unit. The business comprises five bars, including Cabot Bar, Albany/Sports Bar and the Tudor Bar; a restaurant; and the Cabot nightclub. The leisure units are spread over basement, ground and mezzanine floors, with total capacity for c.770 people. Externally there is also a 60-cover sun terrace plus further seating to the front of the business. The property also features nine holiday/staff flats, which are self-contained and benefit from a rooftop sun terrace. There is also large two-bedroom apartment on the first floor, with plans already drawn up for this to be converted into five additional self-contained flats. Cabot 5 Bars has been owned and managed by the same family over four generations, and benefits from year-round trade from both locals and tourists.
