BUSINESSES are being offered the chance to locate themselves in an iconic 18th-century building.

Malton’s Grade II-listed Town Hall has been restored to its former grandeur following a £380,000 refurbishment by the Fitzwilliam Malton Estate.

And leisure property specialists Fleurets have now been instructed to find a suitable operator for the flagship property - which has a guide rent of £50,000 a year.

The estate’s building surveyor Keith Davies said: “Following the extensive refurbishment, including opening up the masonry and glazing the arches, we believe that the building has retained its 18th- century feel, yet is geared for the 21st century.”

A spokesman for Fleurets said: “This is a great opportunity for a high quality operator who is keen to launch a flagship restaurant, bar or café.”

And estate manager Roddy Bushell added: “The Town Hall could be a lynch-pin of the ethos of Malton being widely regarded as Yorkshire’s food capital.”

The building provides 3,230sq ft over two floors and many of its original features have been retained, reflecting the heritage and character of the impressive building.

Local craftsmen including skilled stonemasons have helped with the transformation.
