REF 6501 – Leasehold Cafe Restaurant & Wine Shop

Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this leasehold café, restaurant and wine shop located in the stunning market square of Kirkby Lonsdale, Cumbria.


The Crossing Point Cafe was established by our clients in 2014 to meet local demand for a high quality eatery in this area of Kirkby Lonsdale. The business has soon become well known with locals in addition to attracting plenty of passing trade due to this superb and most enviable trading position. The Crossing Point Café has won numerous awards in recent years including “The Cafelife Gold Award”, was a finalist in “The Cumbria Life Food & Drink Awards” in both 2016 and 2017 and also features in Waitrose’s “Good Food Guide 2018”. The business features a high end, bespoke tea, cigar and wine shop. Excellent online reviews are noted on Trip Advisor and Google and the business has its own website in place.


The business is set in a quaint market square in Kirkby Lonsdale, South Lakeland, Cumbria – this is central within the town centre, on the borders of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks. This area is well linked by the M6 and is popular with tourist all year round. In 2016, Kirkby Lonsdale was a runner up for the great British High Street Awards. Kirkby Lonsdale is also listed as one of the top five places to live in Great Britain by The Times newspaper. Public transport links in the area are good and parking is available immediately outside the business.


The business would be ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator but is offered for sale due to the demands of our client's other business commitments being higher than anticipated. The business presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.


The building is available on a very competitive rent on a Full Repair and Insure lease (FRI lease). This is the most common form of commercial property lease. The current lease is a rolling annual lease and began in 2014. This runs at a cost of £413 per week – this includes building insurance.


The business is currently operating with only our two clients in full time employment in hands on roles. They are supported by three part time members of staff.


The Crossing Point Cafe has traded solidly since opening and accounts are available upon viewing. These are based on trading only 140 days with an Annual Turnover of £95,689 (Audited 31.10.2018) and a Gross Profit of £74,471 (Audited 31.10.2018).


The rateable value is approximately £2,000. Purchasers should enquire with relevant local authorities to confirm the rates payable.


This leasehold business has shown growth year on year since opening and is still increasing. The trading position is superb and our client has established a good base of repeat customers and an excellent reputation. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the introduction of longer opening hours to include evening opening, the business could potentially open as a bistro and may also be privately used for events and functions. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward, increase hours and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations.
