Full description

DESCRIPTION: In The Mood in Digbeth Street, Stow on the Wold, is a highly-original, full of character licensed daytime 1940s-themed Tea Room, serving an appetising menu to include breakfasts, morning coffee, lunch and afternoon tea, together with a range of soft and alcoholic beverages, benefiting from alcohol licence.

The venue is popular with both shoppers and tourists in the highly attractive Cotswolds town of Stow on the Wold.

Stow on the Wold is a delightful old market town at the centre of the Cotswolds. There is a wealth of completely unspoilt traditional Cotswold buildings and it is a thriving local centre, as well as attracting a great number of visitors and tourists.

Due to its central location Stow is also a perfect place to stay with plentiful accommodation. There are numerous walks or for the less energetic a wide variety of specialist shops to browse in with a diverse and interesting selection of goods, many handcrafted and locally produced.

LOCATION: The business is superbly positioned in the centre of this bustling town, enjoying views over Digbeth Street and nestled amongst a range of independent retailers, ensuring sound levels of pedestrian foot flow. Nearby on street parking is free of charge.

PREMISES: A most attractive, character stone property benefiting from eye - catching external signage, with side main entrance door to Tea Room offering 24 covers.

Feature wood - style flooring, half - panelled walls, ceiling and wall lighting, freestanding tables, plus a comprehensive range of retail and catering equipment, as you would expect.

The kitchen leads off to the rear of the premises. Side access to the enclosed courtyard at the rear with seating for a further 12, and customer WCs. Gated access to side passageway with bin storage.

There is a spacious storage cellar below, with ample storage for stock, back up refrigeration etc.

Steps from the interior of the Tea Room lead to the accommodation above.

APARTMENT: This is superbly presented and is currently used as a comfortable and spacious residence for the owners' family members. It is only accessible via the Tea Room below.

The accommodation on the first and second floors is of a high, modern standard and in brief comprises: very spacious and fully equipped kitchen/diner/lounge, bathroom with separate shower, WC and wash basin, 2 large double bedrooms.

Viewing is recommended to appreciate the size and standard to which the premises are presented, extending over 3 levels.

BUSINESS: Established business purchased by the vendors in 2017, since which time the relaunched business has been substantially refurbished and improved, creating a most impressive 1940s-style themed Tea Room.

The premises are extremely well-equipped with modern, quality inventory, including: EPOS till and card machine, oven with 6 ring hob burner, coffee machine and grinder, dishwasher, 2 industrial microwaves, toaster, griddle, pizza oven, double sandwich toaster, extensive refrigeration

New owners can move in without the need for any major expenditure and continue to build on the current levels of trade.

Advised sales are in the region of £130,000pa and growing. There is also obvious scope to extend opening hours, including evenings, which would quickly boost takings even further.

The most appetising menus are kept simple, with a range of delicious items including breakfast, lunch and teas.

Additionally, there is as you would expect a full range of premium teas, coffees, alcoholic beverages and soft drinks.

The current owners took over in September 2017 and are selling very reluctantly for unexpected health reasons, having invested substantially in creating the unique business they run today.

There is an active website and the Tea Room enjoys excellent customer reviews.

TRADING HOURS: The business trades daytimes Monday, Tuesday Friday 11.00am-4.00pm, Saturday and Sunday 9.30am through to 4.00pm.

STAFF: Operated by the vendors with the assistance of part time members of staff; the business would be ideal for a couple.

TENURE: Held on the residue of a 16 year, fully-repairing and insuring Lease which runs to 2030; current rent £17,325 per annum for the business and the apartment, subject to 4 yearly rent reviews.

RATES: Circa £3,500 pa business rates payable.

PRICE: £90,000 for the benefit of the Leasehold, Goodwill, Fixtures, Fittings and Equipment (according to inventory) plus stock at valuation (about £2,000).
