Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this very popular and award winning delicatessen and café business, which is ideally located within the bustling city of Bristol, South West England.

The business was originally established in 2006 and has been in our clients' careful ownership since November 2009. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients' family commitments. The business currently operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £485,600 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 47%.

Our clients offer a wide variety of gourmet delicatessen food and wine from around the world including a vast array of over 60 artisan chesses, as well as local favourites such as Stinking Bishop and Snowdonia Cheddar. The deli counter has a wide range of cured meats, including Serrano, Chorizo, Salami and locally smoked ham, to name a few.

The café is open 7 days per week with 30 internal covers and 38 external covers. The café offers a wide variety of fayre including breakfast pastries and croissants, hot and cold sandwiches, salads, platters and delicatessen dishes, as well as a range of cakes and treats. Our clients' also offer cheese and wine evenings, which has proven to be very popular.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the very high quality of the goods and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

The delicatessen has won numerous awards including a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence, 2016, Deli of the Year 2015 by the Global Cheese Awards and Best Deli from Bristol Good Food Awards in 2014, to name a few.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by opening later and catching the early evening clientele. There is also scope to offer a delivery service within the area. A new owner could embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent goods and service offered. The business already has a very informative website in place at

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Arch House Deli occupies substantial ground floor premises, ideally located within Clifton in the popular city of Bristol, South West England. The business is located on the very busy Fawcett Road and is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops and businesses, therefore, benefiting from a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from good car parking facilities within the area.
