Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

This fabulous business is located in the old part of Burbage village in Leicestershire which has a population of over 14,000. Burbage is effectively a suburb of the larger urban area of Hinckley & is part of Hinckley & Bosworth borough. It is considered to be a commuter location for large parts of Leicestershire, Warwickshire & the West Midlands. This is probably due to the fact it is less than a mile from the M69 (which links that M6 to the M1) and the A5. The village has its own small library run by the county council, two infant schools, the 1st Britannia Scout Group & a secondary school. There is a farmers market every first Saturday of the month. Leicester (with its famous National Space Centre) & Coventry are only 14 miles away.

This delightful Restaurant & Bar is of brick construction, fully rendered to the front, under a pitched, part tiled & partial slate roof, occupying an excellent prominent position in Old Burbage village. A small entrance porch at the front leads to all trading areas.

The trading area is open plan with main Dining/Bar area (circa 32 covers). This lovely area has a warm & relaxed atmosphere. The room is fully quarry tiled with loose cushion covered wooden pew seating, loose farmhouse tables and wooden chairs. Chalkboard menus adorn the walls alongside local historic pictures & tastefully presented bric-a-brac. There is wooden cladding to the walls below dado level & this area is able to be screened & re-organised to accommodate the customer’s needs. Leading off is the Green Room (Circa 18 covers). This area is fully carpeted & has loose cushion covered wooden pews, tables and chairs. There is an electric fire & wood cladding below dado level. The Red Room (Circa 24 covers) is very well presented & has a lovely warm atmosphere. Fully carpeted & with loose cushion covered pews, tables and chairs also. There is an electric fire & local artist’s paintings hang from the walls and are readily available for purchase. The Conservatory (Circa 16 covers) is a fully carpeted area with loose tables, chairs and wooden pews. Patio doors lead out on to the external courtyard patio area.
There is a central Bar Servery of wooden construction with feature stained glass high surround.

Ladies and Gents W.C.’s.

There is a large and very well equipped Catering Kitchen, (equipment not tested). Leading off are areas to include a service area, wash up area & starter section & a sweet prep area that also provides further storage.

There is a below ground Cellar with further storage space.

The owner’s accommodation is situated on the 1st floor and briefly comprises: 3 double bedrooms, large lounge with fireplace, kitchen, office & bathroom.

To the rear of the building is a blocked paved courtyard area with garden furniture, swing seating & a large umbrella. There is also a large garage/storage area & small private enclosed garden area with a shed.
To the rear/side of the property is a lined car park for circa 22 cars. Also to the rear of the property is a good sized field that is currently only used on bonfire night & provides potential for alternative business use.

The current owner’s purchased the business 16 years ago & over the years have established a very solid food led trading foundation with a loyal, repeat and desirable clientele. They have built and grown an excellent reputation as a quality Restaurant & Bar offering high quality food and drinks in superb comfortable surroundings. The business is currently run by the owners assisted by 3 full & 10 part time members of staff. We are advised that accounts declare takings of circa £402,438 inclusive of VAT for year ending January 2012 – 72% Food & 28% wet sales.
