A much-loved former cafe is up for sale seven months after closing for the final time.

Jolly’s Irish Cafe was a staple of the Market Place in Chippenham for 20 years during which time owner Nicola Doyle became a hugely popular figure in the town.

But the business ceased trading in late March of this year after facing a number of setbacks following the turn of the year.

At the time Nicola thanked her many customers for their support over the years.

She said: “Thanks to every single one of you who supported me, you helped me make the place something I’ll always be proud of and the best thing I’ve ever done.”

The Grade II listed building which housed the cafe for two decades has since sat empty.

But it has now been put up for sale on property website Rightmove.

The building is available for £195,000 and also boasts a separately accessed first and second floor containing a potential living room, kitchen, bathroom and double bedroom.

Estate agents Huw Thomas Commercial described the premises as an “excellent opportunity for significant refurbishment”, adding that the property is currently in poor decorative order throughout after months of disuse.
