Commercial development opportunity in the heart of the attractive Oxfordshire town of Wantage.  The Blue Boar has planning permission for the change of use of A4 Public House to A3 Restaurant with the conversion of the upper floors to three self contained flats.


The Blue Boar is a three storey Grade II Listed Public House extending to circa. 0.05 hectares and is within the town centre boundary of Wantage with the immediate area being predominantly commercial and retail in nature.

A planning application (REF: P17/V0969/FUL) and Listed Building Consent (REF: P17/V0970/LB) was submitted in May 2017 for the conversion of the Blue Boar public house and its outbuilding to a restaurant and the upper floors to 3 self contained flats.  The applications were approved by the Vale of White Horse District Council on 28th June 2017.

The converted Grade II Listed public house and outbuilding to a restaurant will provide a GIA of 346.2 sqm.  On the ground floor, the proposed changes including reconfiguring the existing floor area to form a large dining room, along with extending the restaurant into the existing outbuilding.

The upper floors of the public house would be converted to accommodate three self contained flats. These would be accessed using an existing access point to the rear of the courtyard.  Two flats would be located on the first floor whilst the third flat would be located on the second floor.


We believe that all main services are located in the vicinity of the site; however prospective purchasers should make their own enquiries with the appropriate service providers.


The land/Property can be found on Newbury Street, in the heart of the attractive Oxfordshire town of Wantage. The area is predominantly commercial / retail in nature.
