Overview - Ran as a family business since purchased in 2008, The Drovers Tearooms has been a lovely home and business for the current owners. It is a reluctant sale as they would like to retire, the business offers huge scope for producing additional revenue by altering the opening hours until 5pm and to include evening dining, however by choice the owners have just kept the opening times to a limited 9am-3pm daily hours..... even the busy need to rest at some point! A great opportunity to purchase a quality business in a beautiful area.

Dating as far back as 1692 this super building still maintains many of its original character features. The current owners have tried to maintain and enhance these and it is evident on viewing what charm the property still maintains. Standing in a central High Street location, the Tearooms is well known within the town and is frequently used by the locals together with a tourism trade the town benefits from. The Royal Welsh Showground with its events that run throughout the year, bring in a high level of visitors to the town and businesses such as The Drovers thrive because of it.

The Tearooms - The Tearooms occupy the entire ground floor area of the premises, comprising of the restaurant, tearooms and courtyard which between them currently offer approximately 85 covers, all well maintained and offering character features throughout. The dining areas for the customers flow well throughout the property and whether it be a warm meal in the winter months in the restaurant or a light meal in the summer in the courtyard The Drovers caters for all. The Courtyard is so tranquil and with a separate access off the High Street and its well planted shrubs and flowers, it is a really lovely area to sit and enjoy your lunch.

The business is well equipped to handle the 'busy rush' of lunch with both a serving and preparation Kitchen. Both Kitchens are of a good size and as you would expect are fully fitted with quality stainless steel catering equipment to allow the incoming purchaser to trade from day one. There are numerous store, freezer and office rooms at the rear of the property and these provide a vital storage space for the white goods and foods etc in order for the business to run smoothly. These are tucked away at the rear of the building and well out of the way of the public. All the required W.C facilities are provided off the central hallway for the customers, together with a wheelchair access W.C off the courtyard.

The sheer size of the building together with the number of rooms really does allow the opportunity for the business to operate efficiently, put this with large customer dining areas, the quality Kitchen facilities it really does make for a superb Tearooms.

Private Residential Accomodation - This is the part of The Drovers that sets it aside from all other Tearooms that maybe currently for sale. The first floor residential accommodation is something to be admired. Offering 5 bedrooms, with 2 receptions and 2 bathrooms, plus en-suite master bedroom, its could either be a beautiful family home or a valuable income by providing Bed & Breakfast accommodation. The rooms are beautifully maintained and again offers such character throughout, with fittings such as the window shutters in place, the current owners enjoy living here so much it will be hard to leave. Externally there is a large roof terrace that gives you the all important outside space the relax and soak up the fresh air...... and it really is a great little suntrap!

The Business - We have been provided with a brief overview of the business figures and if any keen interest is shown all of the trading accounts will be available to view. There is huge potential for the incoming purchaser to enhance the business by altering the opening hours and obtaining a wet licence. This has been something the current owners have done in the past, however in the last couple of years, as they are nearing retirement they have decided not to open longer hours and just stick to the reduced hours of 9am-3pm so they have sometime to themselves!
