Riverhead is a terrace of six flexible premises, currently divided into five units, within the heart of Grimsby town centre and on the banks of the River Freshney. Riverhead was previously the focal point of the Grimsby leisure scene, being home to a variety of national bar/restaurant chains, including Yates’s, Walkabout, Musika, Fused and Chicago Rock Café, but now houses a two storey PureGym, Play XL indoor play and two other vacant units. Riverhead is positioned on the edge of the prime retailing pitch within the town centre, with occupiers including McDonalds, Argos, Marks & Spencer and House of Fraser being represented, as well as being located opposite one of the entrances to the Freshney Place Shopping Centre.


The unit, which has most recently been occupied by North East Lincolnshire Council as the bus depot waiting area and café, will be located opposite to a multi-million pound landmark mixed use leisure development, due to be completed in the near future. The scheme will comprise a nine screen cinema complex with up to seven national restauranteurs and act as a catalyst for further development within Grimsby town centre

The property provides open-plan accommodation with full-height glazed elevations, incorporating a kitchen area, stores and multiple WCs, benefitting from a mains-powered fire alarm system, burglar alarm and electrically operated roller shutters. The property is well suited for continued use as a café or restaurant, as well as a variety of other uses, subject to any necessary planning consents.
