Motormans Café occupies substantial premises, ideally located approximately one mile from the large village of Marsden, West Yorkshire. The business is situated on the very busy A62 and is surrounded by picturesque countryside views. The business benefits from an extremely large car park, which offers easy access for both private and commercial vehicles.

Marsden is a large village within the Metropolitan Borough of Kirklees, West Yorkshire. It is situated at the confluence of the River Colne and the Wessenden Brook. According to a 2008 mid-year estimate, the village had a residential population of 4,440. Marsden holds festivals and cultural events throughout the year including Marsden Cuckoo Day, a day long festival held annually in spring and the Marsden Jazz Festival, which is held every October.

The area of the business is served by the public transport system, with bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. Marsden railway station is approximately one mile away. The area is also extremely well-served by the A-roads, with the business being situated on the bust A62, which links to the national A-road and motorway networks. Huddersfield is approximately 8 miles away and Oldham is 10½ miles away.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Motormans Café, which is ideally located on the busy A62 near the village of Marsden, West Yorkshire.

The old established business has been in our client's careful ownership since 1980 and is only now, reluctantly, being offered to the market due to our client's desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £65,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 54%.

Our client offers a varied menu of mostly home cooked fayre including breakfasts, hot & cold sandwiches, jacket potatoes, roast beef dinners, lamb casserole, curries, scampi and lasagne, to name a few, as well as a children's menu. On Sunday our client offers Sunday lunches incorporating roast beef, turkey, gammon and salmon.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area, and further afield, with commercial vehicle drivers reading reviews on trucker webpages, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

The café boasts a spacious dining area with approximately 40 covers, which is very well maintained and decorated to a high standard. The property also boasts spacious three bedroom accommodation, which could be used as owners' living quarters or let out to generate further income.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, as the business is currently operating at a pace to suit our client. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the food and services offered. The business would also benefit from the launch of a website to advertise the fayre offered.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this popular cafe business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
