    Beef it up

    Slaughterhouse is a fantastic opportunity to establish a bustling waterside restaurant, bar, office, shop or gallery. Located near the entrance of Royal William Yard, with great neighbours and fantastic footfall, Slaughterhouse is a beautiful building, set around a distinctive triangular internal courtyard. It also looks out over the water and opens its doors on to the new boardwalk.

    Built in 1831, it shares the timeless Georgian neo-classical design as the rest of Royal William Yard, with beautifully textured original stone walls, exposed wooden beams and a steel columned colonnade.

If you’re looking for individuality, a superb location and a building that feels all your own, you’ll find few finer places in the South West of England. There’s even a cow or two around the place…
