Cuckoo the Uckfield High Street bar has closed less than a year after opening and the premises are back on the market.
The shop is being let by commercial agents Lawson Commercial and interest is already being shown by retailers while others looking at continuing it as a micro pub.
Lawson Commercial partner Chris Lawson said it was sad that the Cuckoo concept didn’t work.
He added: “That idea of micro pub/wine bar might have had some merit, particularly in premises that aren’t too big, and bringing something different to town.
“The landlord, at the time, was prepared to take a chance that it might work rather than take yet another charity shop but the premises are back on the market.”
