ONE of Blackburn's best-known restaurant sites is on the market - with a price tag of £400,000.

The former all-you-can-eat New Saigon Buffet, in Exchange Street, has been closed for some time.

But estate agents are confident that the premises, previously known as The Borough pub, will soon attract a would-be investor.

Back in 2017 the premises were the subject of a raid by the National Crime Agency, amid suspicions that a woman associated with the site was involved in modern slavery offences.

Police and NCA officials were involved in the swoop, which led to the arrest of a 43-year-old Vietnamese woman, it was later confirmed.

The property has been placed on the market with Manchester-based outfit Lancashire Properties and comes with a four-bedroom flat, on the second floor, for staff occupation.

Before it closed the main restaurant was situated on the ground floor, with the toilets located upstairs.

Another bungalow, to the rear of the main site, could also be incorporated into the business, adapted for housing or used for storage, according to the agents.

A spokesman for Lancashire Properties said: "The property is kept in excellent condition of repair and decoration and will benefit from good foot fall due to location."
