Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce a highy popular restaurant to the market. The business was originally established in 2006 by our client, who is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to take a well deserved retirement.
This restaurant specialies in modern British cuisine with many popular Mediterranean specialities. Throughout the day, the menu includes great breakfasts, coffee and pastries and at lunch time they offer popular afternoon teas. They also have a take away option for the deli leading into an early supper menu and evening dinning.
The business also doubles up as a bar and shop. This is the go to place in the area, with the fantastic range of products. We are advised the store sells around 500 wines from around the world. The store also has a great selection of premium spirits, ales, cigars and Riedel glassware.
The current owner organises wine tasting trips throughout Europe for members. This includes complementary visits to many of the 40 wine suppliers. Over the years our client has built up great relationships with the suppliers.
A full menu and price list can be found on the business website. The website has regular updates with daily events, wine tasting speakers and specials on offer.
We are advised the current turnover for the business is around £600,000 per annum. This is fantastic but we believe it could be increased. The current deli area is located at the front of the restaurant however we feel it could be more profitable to remove this space and replace it with a more visible bar and by adding a comfortable seating area it will be more attractive to passing trade.
This is the only restaurant in the area of this size with an A3 licence. Directly outside the property is parking for over 240 cars. This premise is a fantastic property for a restaurant with its large double fronted unit and generously sized outside dining area.
Above the store is a four bedroom owners accommodation which would be perfect for a purchaser looking to locate to the area. There is also the option to rent out the accommodation to create £2000 extra income a month.
The current owner would be willing to work with the purchaser to ensure they are introduced to the 40 suppliers. As well as guiding them through the best way to look after the wine club members.
This is an unmissable opportunity to own a well-known highly profitable business in a fantastic location. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
