Barnham is a rural village with all amenities. The village had a population of around 3,000 as of the 2001 census, this has doubled over the years. The area is currently undergoing a lot of development, which again will increase the population. We are advised that 2 new housing developments are under construction within a 2 mile radius of the café with circa 2300 new homes.

The village has its own train station; this runs between Brighton and Southampton but is known mostly for its direct route to London.

The village is approximately just a short 20-minute drive from the town centre of Bognor Regis. There are direct train lines and bus routes that run directly into the town daily.
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Baps N Buns. The takeaway was originally established in this prominent trading location in the 1970's. Our client then took over the business in 2009 and is now looking to sell, due to health reasons. This business has been run to an exceptional standard and benefits from a great reputation.

This is a great turnover; however, we feel this could be increased. The new owner should look to expand the popular outside catering service. Our client is running the business at a steady pace to suit them and so with a hands on new owner, this takeaway can be taken to the next level.
