Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

THE LOCATION
The premises occupy a central location within this popular thriving tourist village setting within the Exmoor National Park. The property is set back from and faces the main traffic route through the village connecting Minehead to Lynmouth, therefore in an ideal position to take advantage of local and tourist trade.
Porlock offers a host of facilities including mini-market, homeware shop, various antique shops and is close to the west Somerset coastline.

THE PROPERTY
The property is a former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel believed to have been built around 1837 and for 100 years operated as a place of worship accommodating over 200 people. In the early 20th Century, the property was converted into a restaurant and in the mid-1980s was converted to provide accommodation to the first floor. The premises now operate as a character 54-seater licensed restaurant with a well-equipped commercial kitchen, cloakrooms and storage on the ground floor, plus a fish 'n' chip shop takeaway servery.
In addition, and approached from an external staircase, to the first floor is a spacious 3-bedroom owners apartment. Outside, the property also has an area to the front with 4 picnic tables for outside dining.

THE BUSINESS
The property is offered as a going concern comprehensively equipped with potential to develop the trade as a licensed restaurant and fish 'n' chip shop takeaway. The menu provides beverages, breakfasts, lunches and evening meals and our clients have been in ownership since the early part of 2008 and are now selling for genuine reasons. There is huge potential to develop an excellent catering business and we strongly recommend an internal viewing. With a turnover of £60,000 per annum.
