AN UPPERMILL restaurant has gone on the market before it could reopen.Rioja on the village’s High Street is up for sale for a reduced fee of £129,950 after owners Padmani Mistry and Pamela Lad decided to sell.
After taking on what was an already established tapas restaurant, they added Indian dishes to the menu after buying it in 2018.
However, the premises are now up on the market once again.
Originally known as Charlottes Coffee House in 2009 and then Riverside, it became known as Rioja and was sold to Lee Millward in 2014 when the then owner concentrated on being a fireman.
However, it was sold again in 2018 when Mr Millward and business partner David Pownall decided to sell to allow for one partner’s relocation abroad.
Now it is on the market once more. The listing says Rioja has takings in the region of £7,000-a-week and boasts seating for about 150 people, across its inside and outside areas.
