Description

Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Old Time Fisheries, an extremely highly rated English Fish and chip shop, located on Devonshire Street.

Our clients have owned the building for over 18 years and originally the building was a newsagent. In 2013 our clients completely renovated the building to create this award-winning fish and chip shop. Only now does the business come to market as our client is looking to retire and spend more time with family.

Old Time Fisheries is very well known in the area and sees a high amount of repeat trade as well as benefiting from passing trade. The business is currently trading 6 days a week, on part time hours to suit our client, generating a turnover of £58,000 per annum. The business is also closed 5 weeks of the year for holidays. Therefore there is a huge amount of scope to increase the revenue.

The menu comprises of traditional English fish and chips, pies, sausages, children’s meals, shmoo milkshakes and gluten free options, to name a few.

The business is very highly rated online, holding a 5 star google and Facebook reviews, customer comments include ‘Cracking food, always freshly made when I go in. The staff are friendly and polite. There are even lighter options to choose from, which is good for me as I get overfaced with a whole portion of chips with my fish. Or celiac, gluten free batter is available on request as well as several other alternatives to the standard fare.’ And ‘Superb quality fish, lovingly fried, can't recommend highly enough. Just a great fish shop.’

Old Time fisheries has won numerous awards including being in the top 50 for four years running, the gold award for good food, and came 2nd in the Nationals. Our client is offering a hand over period to ensure the continued success of the business.

The business currently holds a 5-star hygiene rating.
