Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this well presented restaurant and bar which was established as a public house many years ago and has been in the careful hands of our clients for the last 6½ years. Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to their desire to take a well earned break and travel the world. Since our clients took ownership of the business they have undertaken a full programme of refurbishment meaning that the business is in full walk-in condition. Our clients inform us that annual turnover currently runs at £200,587 with a gross profit margin of 66% which is derived from the sale of a selection of beers, wines and spirits in addition to a popular hot & cold food menu. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade with Christmas day 2012 already fully booked. Huge scope to expand into weddings and outside catering to the many industries in the area. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business, which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as businesses of this calibre rarely stay on the market for long.
