The current owners purchased the property 9 years ago and have established a thriving Steak House business serving quality food and drink to a loyal & repeat clientele. The owners currently run the business assisted by 4 full and 2-part time members of staff. The business is well established within the Lincolnshire area & thrives on repeat business from its offer of popular steaks and a highly desired dessert take away offer. It also acts as a venue for parties when requested and offers an excellent opportunity for a new operator to continue to build on the existing business. We are advised that accounts declare takings of circa 302,425 inclusive of VAT for year ending 31st March 2015 with 80% Food and 20% Wet sales.

We calculate reconstituted Net profits to be in excess of 67,000 after adding back director's remuneration, depreciation and other one off costs. New owners could continue to operate the business using the same successful formula or they may wish to take the business to the next level by extending the opening hours, introducing dinner and dance nights/wedding parties or even exploring the opportunity of creating a B&B offer. This business would suit an operator couple who have experience of working in a similar catering and hospitality environment. Please see:
