Business History
Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this popular restaurant, tea rooms and hotel which has been established for 30 years and has been in the careful hands of our clients since 02/02/2003 for the last 14 years.
Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to a desire to take a well-deserved retirement

Since our clients have owned the business they have continually developed and improved the business, introducing new lines and income streams which has enhanced the restaurant massively and in particular shows in the year on year increase in turnover and profitability. Our clients inform us that annual turnover currently runs at 175,000 opening only 5 days a week and not utilising the rooms or lunch which is derived from offering an extensive hot & cold food menu serving a range of French/English dishes in their 120 cover restaurant, Recently changed it to an Indian Brasserie but not really utilised the mass potential of it due to health as there is a good demand for an upmarket Indian restaurant in whittle le woods and Hugh market for takeaway delivered.
They also offered have a quaint tearoom serving full English breakfasts, sandwiches and ice creams to name just a few. Our client also host a range of themed nights and functions such as birthdays, weddings and christenings,
