Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Gillians.

This longstanding family run café, sandwich bar and basic convenience store generates a healthy turnover in the region of £270,000 per annum. The biggest proportion of this comes from the takeaway side, however the café does offer great potential for future growth.
