The town also boasts three theatres and several bars, allowing for a great nightlife.

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Just Around The Corner. This popular bistro/bar was originally established in 2016. This is an exceptional business that has been completed to a very high standard. Our client is now reluctantly selling the business, due to family commitments.

The business runs as a licenced bistro and bar in a great town centre location. The premises is licenced from 4:30pm up till 11:30pm. The business sells a variety of bottled beers, spirits and hot and cold drinks as well as a varied food menu. The bistro sells pub classic dishes with a modern twist. Popular dishes include fish and chips, sandwiches, burgers, Mexican dishes, salads, tasty desserts as well as a separate tapas menu.

Just Around The Corner also caters for functions, weddings, birthdays and other celebrations. This is a popular service that the new owner could look to expand. Our client currently offers live music and open mic nights some evening, this is popular with the locals and attracts large crowds.

The business is currently generating an advised turnover of 50,200, with a gross profit of 56%, as of the 2016 accounts. In the past this business has seen a larger turnover; this has recently decreased due our client's commitments.

There is huge scope to massively increase turnover. Our client lives a distance away from the property and on some nights, has had to close earlier. The bistro is also currently open 5 days a week.

With a purchaser, closer to the business or with management in place, the owner could take advantage of the long licencing hours 7 days a week. We feel the new owner could also consider expanding licence hours, adding beer pumps, opening earlier and closing later.

On the first floor of the bistro, there is a possible function room with bar. The upper floor has separate utility meters, fitted toilets and shower room. This could be sublet as a commercial property or studio apartment if not required by the purchaser.

The business has a great online presence with excellent TripAdvisor reviews and an up to date Facebook page. Social media is a great way of advertising a business for free. The page is regularly updated with photos, events, promotions and special offers. The page has over 400 followers.

This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
