Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this very well-located butchers shop, run by the current owners for the last 13 years and a butcher’s shop for more than 50 years, so is very well established.

The shop offers locally sourced meat and poultry, eggs and cheese, together with a large amount of homemade produce, which includes sausages, faggots, scotch eggs and boiled ham.

It is a very well established and well-liked business, however with longer hours, a more extensive product range to include such things as pates, local pickles, chutneys’ etc, a delivery service to the local area and a good marketing campaign we believe the business could be taken to the next level.

The shop comes with an extensive range of quality fixtures and fittings and is offered at a good price, with a genuine reason for sale.

Viewing is a must to appreciate the quality on offer.



We are advised that the business is being sold as a Leasehold opportunity on a rolling lease.

The rent payable is £5,200 per annum.
