The Ruen Thai is located on Crosby Street in the heart of Carlisle city centre, surrounded by a host of other retail and hospitality outlets. The historic city of Carlisle sits at the confluence of the Rivers Eden, Caldew and Petteril and offers an array of museums and heritage sites, as well as easy access to the Lake District National Park and Hadrian’s Wall. Carlisle links to the rest of England via the M6 motorway to the south, and to Scotland via the M74 towards Glasgow. Carlisle Railway Station serves the town and is a principal station on the West Coast Main Line, providing links nationally. The town also benefits from an excellent bus network. 

The property, located in a busy commercial area, is a detached two-storey building of brick construction with white rendering and a pitched tile roof.

There are two stairways leading to the first floor trade area, STOREROOM offset with access to the external courtyard, LADIES’ AND GENTLEMEN’S TOILETS.

Ruen Thai is currently closed and therefore no trade accounts are available. The property previously traded as a successful Thai restaurant in the heart of Carlisle and benefitted from high footfall due to its prime location. It would ideally suit continued use as a restaurant or café/bar or a change of use, subject to planning permission.
