This exciting and unique retail opportunity is situated in the heart of Exeter’s specialist independent retail and leisure district. Fore Street has long been established as the City’s best location for leisure retailing with the South West’s premier quality bike retailer located immediately above! Other activity retailers in Fore Street include Taunton Leisure, The Kit Shop and Salt City surf shop. Fore Street also has a vibrant mix of independent bespoke and ethical clothing retailers with a range of vintage boutique operators. There are a number of well-established restaurant venues offering excellent cuisine including the renowned Fat Pig, Ganges Indian curry house and Forn Tapas Bar.
The Bike Shed comprises two adjoining Victorian warehouse buildings. These Locally Listed properties have considerable character and offer largely open plan accommodation. The premises traded for several years as Mad Megs Restaurant (an informal banqueting themed venue) and for the past seven years as The Bike Shed Theatre comprising a licenced bar and live performance venue.
