Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Thatched Cottage Restaurant. The business was originally established in 1990 and was taken over by our client in 2009. This is a popular restaurant in the town, that receives a generous amount of repeat loyal trade.
The business currently runs as a traditional restaurant selling a substantial menu with modern pub classics, such as chicken tagliatelle, seafood medley, fillet steak, calves liver, chocolate mousse, ice creams and more. The restaurant caters for weddings, private parties and Christmas lunches.
The business generates a healthy turnover of around £160,000 per annum, with a gross profit of 56%. This is a great turnover, which has further scope to be increased. The new owner should look to extend the current menu and could also increase the opening hours. The business currently closes early on Sundays, serving Sunday lunches would be a great way of maximising custom.
Included in the sale, is the 5 bedroom owner’s accommodation, this is great for a family looking to relocate to this quaint town. However, if accommodation is not required by the owner, there is the option to let these rooms out as bed and breakfast rooms. There is a large amount of tourists that visit this restaurant; this would be a great plus to the business and would complement the trade well.
The restaurant already has an excellent online reputation, there is a business website and great online reviews on sites such as TripAdvisor.
This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
