Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

LOCATION
In a busy town centre trading position, located in the heart of Bideford this popular riverside port on the banks of the River Torridge. The premises are located in Mill Street, which is the busiest retail street in the town. Nearby traders include offices, greengrocers, shops, hardware stores, butchers and WH Smith. The town has a population in the region of 14,000 inhabitants, with an influx of tourists in the summer season and is recognised as the main centre for the Torridge District Council, encompassing nearby villages of Westward Ho, Appledore and Northam.

THE PREMISES
The property provides a deceptively spacious accommodation with the main licenced 62 seater L-shaped restaurant on the ground floor, with 2 customer cloakrooms and a well-equipped commercial kitchen to the rear. To the upper floors there are 2 self-contained apartments, one in the front providing a 2 bedroom apartment, the other to the rear providing a 3 bedroom apartment with a very large lounge on the second floor. There are 3 bathrooms and part gas fired central heating.

THE BUSINESS
The business is that of a busy licenced restaurant, having been established for many years, providing 62 seats with a main customer servery counter, preparation room, kitchen, store room to the rear, staff courtyard, freezer room and workshop beyond. There is also a customer cloakroom and smoking area. We understand the turnover for the year ending February 2016 was approximately £136,939. The previous year the figures provided a turnover of £140,000 approximately. This was due to extended hours and the proprietors of the Cleverdon's Café franchised out Sunday food sales to members of staff who have since left to start families. A discerning purchaser will soon realise the business could open further hours on evenings and on Sundays to provide an even higher turnover. The audited accounts will be made available to interested parties who have inspected the properties. It is strongly recommended to have an internal viewing, to appreciate the size and scope of the accommodation.
