Hilton Smythe is delighted to offer to the market this substantial sized investment opportunity, in Morecambe, Lancashire. The property was formally used as a restaurant business which was established in 1970 and had been in our client's careful ownership since 1987. Only now is the investment being offered to the market due to our client's wish for a well deserved retirement.
The business generated a turnover in the region of £100,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 57%. The turnover was generated by offering freshly prepared Spanish, Italian and English dishes, as well as a varied selection of beverages. The commercial kitchen had a 5* food and hygiene rated.
The premises currently boasts a spacious 60 cover restaurant and a well-equipped commercial kitchen. There is also a 4-5 bedroom owners' accommodation with a lounge, kitchen and bathroom.
We feel this is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, maybe a husband and wife team, to take this large investment opportunity and turn it into something highly successful. Early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

New lease to be negotiated.
