The property is likely to be of interest to operators wishing to re-establish the unit as a first class hospitality/catering business, benefitting from its seafront location.

Cllr Richard Keeling Teignbridge executive member for corporate resources, said he was delighted that the prime seafront site was now on the market.

He said: “By relocating the toilets and making the whole building available for let, we believe we have created the flexibility which will appeal to prospective tenants.

“Our aim is to let the building as quickly as possible and we are excited about the opportunities it can offer. Its reopening will benefit residents from the town and surrounding areas as well as boosting the tourist economy.”

Matt Bettesworth, who is dealing with the marketing of the property on behalf of the council said: "The former Beachcomber Restaurant provides an exciting opportunity for any budding operator to secure one of the best waterfront pitches in the South Devon area."
