Hilton Smythe is delighted to offer to the market the Happy Cod fish and chip shop, purchased by our client in 2012 and only now offered to the market due to our client’s desire to retire. This well-established business first opened its doors in the early 1970’s.

The well-loved business is the only traditional fish and shop in this area and surprisingly includes a large family accommodation. This would suit a family or someone looking to make an additional income from lettings.

The menu includes freshly cooked fish and on site freshly cut chips, sausages, pies, burgers, chicken, vegetable & chicken burgers, jacket potatoes, children’s meals as well as kebabs and cold drinks.

Currently, the trade comes from walk in customers, Just Eat and telephone orders.

Our client has spent over £30,000 in improvements including a refurb of both the shop and the flat above.
