Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

If you are looking to run your own bistro or café which offers huge opportunity to increase turnover significantly in a highly sought after and affluent location in the beautiful Suffolk countryside then you really must view as they do not get much better than this one.

Currently only operating three evenings a week there is significant potential to open during the day as a cafe and enjoy the increased rewards that this would bring. Add to the mix a spacious two bedroom first floor apartment providing ideal owners accommodation, it is easy to see why this business will attract a lot of attention and so we would urge interested parties to contact us at their earliest convenience.

THE BUSINESS ITSELF

The business has previously successfully operated as a café however due to the vendors desire to reduce their hours they have this year decided to only open as a bistro at night and the new owner could easily combine the two should they so wish or alternatively continue to work the limited hours currently enjoyed.

Offering a relaxed dining experience in a welcoming and characterful surroundings there is a charming atmosphere to the premises which is a big draw to customers as is the fresh, good quality but unpretentious food and wine menu.

Currently taking in the region of £1,800 p.w just on the three evening openings it would not be unreasonable to expect turnover to be able to reach the £4,000 p.w mark if the business was operated on a full time basis combining both a cafe and bistro.

ACCOMMODATION

ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE AND FOR GUIDANCE ONLY.

The premises really are a joy, situated in the upmarket locality of Clare and benefiting from one of the most prominent positions in the town with a double aspect looking out to the main square and visible to passing traffic in three directions, this really is the best spot to be.

The Grade 2 listed building has a wealth of features and character with many items of interest. Upon entering from the street into the restaurant, the ambience is obvious even when empty. The good sized restaurant seats 30 coverswith a selection of table sizes and measures approx 5.18 m x 8.06 m. The room is partly split in two by steps up and original timber stud work and has an open fireplace with Bessemer beam (currently unused). Large feature windows let in lots of natural light in and it has tiled flooring to the lower level and Parquet flooring to the upper. A good sized and well fitted customer toilet is provided and the restaurant further benefits from a full sound system as well as gas fired central heating.

The kitchen area is partially open to the restaurant which adds to the ambience and feel of the place and is again partly split in two with a cold food and drink preparation area with a range of fridges, freezer, shelving, work surfaces, hand wash, urn, microwave, ice machine and storage. Moving into the cooking and washing area one will find it set with four induction hobs, stainless steel work surfaces with under counter fridge, extraction hood, oven, griddle and microwaves with the washing area providing pot wash sink, dishwasher and space for a washing machine. The kitchen was fully fitted out by the vendor only three years ago and so is in very good condition and order.

Outside is a small courtyard area with views over the church and providing a covered space where the vendor currently cooks many a flame grilled dish over the gas BBQ with a cold smoker and work surfaces.

Moving upstairs to the residential apartment which is well presented and is also full of character and charm. Original windows to the front have secondary double glazing fitted reducing outside noise and again there are exposed timbers throughout. The living room is a a surprisingly good size and can fit three double sofas as well as a recessed office area with room for a desk and enjoys a double aspect with far reaching views of the village. There are in addition two double bedrooms and a good sized bathroom with double width shower off a spacious landing and hallway with good quality carpets fitted throughout. There is also a large attic with dormer window currently used for storage.
