Baking by Royal Order
18 May 2012 By Robin James
Graves Jenkins have been instructed by a privately owned London based property company to seek tenants for one of Brighton’s most interesting city centre buildings.
The premises at 9-10 Pool Valley, facing the bus terminus and adjacent to Royal York Buildings, were used for over 100 years as a bakery and was founded in 1794. Originally run by Streeter & Son and then by subsequent generations of the Cowley family as a ‘bread and biscuit maker’ from the address then known as 9 Pool Lane. It carried Her Majesty’s kite mark.
Locally known in those days as ‘Ye Olde Bunn Shoppe’ and more recently used as restaurant and café premises.
“It would be wonderful if we were able to find someone to operate a bakery business from the premises and regenerate the original outlet from the late 18th century,” commented Phil Graves.
The commercial team are looking for a new tenant at a commencing rental of £24,000pa and the residential team are seeking tenants for the two large newly formed flats over.
