Description

The restaurant sits within a terraced building on the busy High Street surrounded by a variety of independent shops.

Our clients pride themselves on providing a dining experience that enables guests to relax in an unhurried atmosphere, catering for couples, families and parties alike.

Location

The Oyster and Chop House is located on the High Street in Herne Bay's up and coming restaurant quarter.

Herne Bay is a seaside resort on the North Kent coast, ideally situated with Canterbury seven miles to the south and Whitstable five miles to the west.

The town is accessed via the A299 that runs between Ramsgate and Faversham, with the road merging with the M2 motorway. There is also a mainline railway station with links between Ramsgate and London Victoria, as well as being served by the Southeastern High Speed Service to London St Pancras International station.

Internal Details

The restaurant is well laid out with a mixture of chairs and booth seating, catering for 50 covers at full capacity. There is a beautifully presented bar and to the rear, a large commercial kitchen.

At basement level there is ample storage space, in what used to be a purpose built flat.

Fixtures & Fittings

All trade fixtures and fittings will be included in the sale and our clients will provide a trade inventory.

Some specialist kitchen equipment will be available at an extra cost, but a fully working commercial kitchen will be in place when purchased.

Owner's Accommodation

The basement is currently used for storage but was previously used as a one bedroom flat with a lounge, bathroom and kitchen/diner.

The Opportunity

The restaurant has built up a good reputation and is well served by the local community and the influx of tourist visitors to the town, especially during the summer months.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a well-established restaurant in a thriving coastal town.

Staff
