Historic Middlesbrough pub on the market

28 November 2016

One of Middlesbrough’s most historic pubs has come onto the market, and could have a new lease of life as a micro-brewery, shop or bar.

The Shakespeare on Linthorpe Road is available for sale or rent through Middlesbrough independent commercial property consultants Dodds Brown. 

A grade II listed building, constructed in the 19th Century, The Shakespeare closed down as a pub in the late 1990’s, and was most recently used as an amusement arcade.  Now it is empty and looking for a new operator.

Listed at number five in a 2014 poll of Teesside's favourite drinking spots of the past, The Shakespeare operated as a hotel and pub for around 150 years.  Close to Middlesbrough railway station, and adjacent to Marks and Spencer’s in the heart of the prime retail area, The Shakespeare, 34 Linthorpe Road, Middlesbrough, TS1 1RD, has 4,381 sq ft of accommodation over three floors, with 2,672 sq ft of that space on the ground floor.

The exterior of the pub still boasts a range of historical features, including a stone relief of Shakespeare at the top of the building and Bass Brewery ‘red triangles’ above each door.

Richard Wilson, Dodds Brown’s Senior Associate Partner says: “This is an ideal opportunity to bring one of Middlesbrough’s most historic pubs back to life and to play a part in the town’s retail and leisure revival.  The premises would lend themselves to a micro-brewery, independent retail outlet or eating establishment. “

Further information and details about the freehold price and rental terms are available from Dodds Brown on telephone on 01642 244130 or by email: s.brown@doddsbrown.co.uk or via the firm’s website www.doddsbrown.co.uk.
