Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this popular restaurant and bar in the tourist destination of Bakewell, Derbyshire.

The business was established by our client in 2015 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s desire to concentrate on other business interests. The restaurant/bar currently operates 7 days per week and generates a fantastic turnover in the region of £400,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.

Our client offers a wide variety of fayre, which is all freshly prepared using the finest locally sourced Derbyshire produce. Menu’s include the early Bird menu, which is available Monday to Saturday, the A La Carte menu, available Tuesday to Thursday and the very popular Sunday Roast menu, which features roast beef or pork from a local farm. The fully licensed restaurant and bar also offers a variety of beverages including wines, cocktails, craft beers and artisan coffees.

The property boasts a spacious bar area, a cocktail lounge/relaxed eating area, a very stylish restaurant, a full commercial kitchen and a wash-up area. The premises are extremely well maintained and decorated to a very high standard. Approximately £80,000 has been spent by our client, ensuring the business has the highest quality fixtures and fittings.

In the short time the business has been open it has built up an enviable reputation within the area and further afield, for the very high quality of the food and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with a very high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

The restaurant boasts excellent reviews and ratings on the popular website Trip Advisor and is the winner of Diners Choice 2015 by Opentable. Our client is more than happy for a new owner to retain the business name.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent food and service offered. The business already has a very informative website in place to promote the restaurant at, which offers online booking facilities.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a popular restaurant business, which is beautifully presented and in a prime trading position; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Rileys occupies substantial ground floor premises, ideally located within the popular tourist destination of Bakewell, Derbyshire. The business is situated within the town centre and is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary independent shops and businesses, therefore benefiting from a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from good car parking facilities within the immediate area.

Bakewell is the only market town within the Peak District National Park boundary and its attractive courtyards, independent shops, cafés and its location on the River Wye make it a hugely popular destination for tourists to the Peak District. Bakewell is best known for a confection made by mistake, when in the 19th century a cook was making a jam tart, but misunderstood the recipe and so Bakewell pudding was created.
