Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular fish & chip shop business, which is ideally located within Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

The business was originally established in the 1970s and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2015. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire to concentrate on other business interests. The fish and chip shop currently operates 6 days per week.

Our client offers a wide variety of fast food fayre to take away including fish & chips, pizza, garlic bread, kebabs, burgers, wraps and special offers. The property has recently been re-fitted at some considerable cost to our client. The ground floor boasts 17 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade.

The first floor offers a self-contained flat, which includes a lounge, newly fitted kitchen, new bathroom and a double bedroom, which could be used as owners’ accommodation or rented out to generate further income.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the fayre and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover, perhaps by extending the opening hours at weekends. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent food and services offered. The business could also benefit from the launch of a website to promote the business.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.



We are advised Leasehold:

Original lease length: 25 years
Remaining lease length: 23½ years, as of August 2016
Rent: £10,400 per annum


The business is open:

Monday – Saturday: 11.30am – 9.00pm

The business is owner run and managed with 1 x full time and 2 x part time staff members.
