Preston City Council has agreed to sell the former Baffito’s restaurant at the Docks.

The dockland property in Navigation Way is set to be taken over by Glenholme Healthcare Group, a residential care provider for the elderly and adults with a variety of complex needs.

The building has stood empty since October 2019, when Italian restaurant Baffito’s closed its doors. Prior to this, the property was The Waterfront pub.

Baffito’s closed amid reports of anti-social behaviour and damage being caused to a marquee that was used as an additional space for weddings, parties and christenings.

A Preston City Council spokesperson said: “An executive decision has been taken to sell the freehold interest at this location, which is subject to call-in until 22 October.

“No further comment can be made about ongoing legal matters.”
