Business Description
Aspire is delighted to offer for sale this fantastic licensed bistro restaurant, ideally located on a main arterial road leading into Kendal, Cumbria. The premises sit on the edge of the town centre, in a very prominent corner position, attracting much passing trade and benefitting from high footfall. The business is surrounded by a wide range of complimentary shops and independent businesses, and is situated adjacent to the busiest Premier Inn in the UK. There is ample car parking in the vicinity and easy access to public transport, with a bus stop a few paces away.
Kendal is a historic market town, situated in the valley on the banks of the River Kent, and has been voted one of the most desirable places to live in the UK. The area can be access via a number of major A-roads, and the M6 motorway is approximately 6 miles distant.

The bistro has been in the careful hands of the current owners for over 16 years, and over that period of time, they have continued to enhance and improve the business. The owners have developed an enviable reputation in the town and this is reflected on internet-based review sites. The business serves a range of French-inspired and Mediterranean food, and has an extensive list of hand-picked wines.

The business trades from a superb 3-storey, stone-built, corner-sited property, with full height windows to both sides and an unusual corner entrance door.
Internally the attractive and contemporary open-plan service area has a feature mural wall, exposed stone walls and exposed beams. There are tables and chairs for up to 34 covers and the corner bar servery accommodates a coffee machine, coffee grinder, hand sink, fridge, glass rack, fridge freezer, electronic cash register and card terminal

To the rear of the restaurant there is a fully fitted stainless steel commercial kitchen, including stainless steel worktops, splash-backs, shelving and 2 x air extraction units. The wide range of equipment includes a hot cupboard, 6-burner gas range and ovens, double fryer, dessert oven, various fridge / freezers, commercial dishwasher, double commercial sink and hand sink.
The kitchen is finished with tiled flooring and wipe down walls, and there is a rear exit door.

An internal staircase leads up the first floor, where there is a dry goods store, which is shelved and racked and houses various fridges and freezers and an office space. Also to this floor is an additional store room, ladies and gents WC’s, a utility room housing a washing machine and tumble dryer, and access to the private owners’ accommodation.

Within the owners’ accommodation there is a double bedroom to this first floor, and a further internal staircase leading up to the second floor. On the second floor there is a lounge with feature fireplace, a feature corner window and exposed stone walls; a bathroom with walk-in shower, WC and hand wash basin; a further bathroom with a bath and hand wash basin; and an additional double bedroom.

We have been advised that, despite the recent poor weather conditions and bad storms, the premises were not flooded in any part and remain unaffected.

There is a website in place, which could be easily improved to showcase the premises and fully present the dishes and wine available. This could also offer an on-line table booking system. The introduction of social media would also increase the exposure of the business.

With an already high turnover, it would be possible to further enhance income. Initially extending the opening hours for all day trading would increase returns, and it would also be possible to introduce speciality evenings with sample menus and wine tasting.

Opening times:

Thursday to Saturday – 12noon to 2.00pm

Monday to Friday – 5.30pm to 9.30pm
Saturday and Sunday – 5.30pm to 10.00pm
