THE BUSINESS

Our vendor client operates this excellent business as a 'sole trader' on a full time basis with the assistance of 3 full time and 5 part time members of staff.
Trade is currently derived from circa 80% wet and 20% food sales, thereby providing tremendous scope for a new hands-on owner operator partnership with previous experience of running a food orientated operation to emulate the current successful business model yet at the same time to exploit the food and functions potential that is to be found here.
This is an incredible opportunity for those seeking a lifestyle change or an alternative career from the hustle and bustle of the City or even as an additional income stream whilst commuting.
Advised current sales circa 500,000+ (incl. VAT). This delightful inn is an extremely well-established and highly successful business and in our opinion with the above areas of potential we would quite easily expect a fully focussed and fully committed partnership to achieve a turnover well in excess of 600,000 (incl. VAT).
