Hilton Smythe are delighted to offer to the market The Cookhouse, Haworth Cobbles, Keighley an extremely well-established café with 3 bed living accommodation. 

The Cookhouse was established in 2013, with our client taking over in 2017, though our clients have thoroughly enjoyed running the business, our clients are looking to relocate closer to their family.

The business is situated within a large commercial premise providing seating area with 24 internal covers and 8 external.

On the first floor is a 3-bedroom living accommodation, due to the size, the first and second floors have been used as bed and breakfast letting rooms in the past.

The café currently offers a menu of traditional, home cooked, English breakfast, lunch menu and home cooked cakes.

Services offered are takeout or eat in. There is huge scope for a delivery service should the buyer desire. The premises also benefits from holding an alcohol licence which can serve from 11am – 11pm.

At time of instruction the cookhouse has excellent reviews on google and is number 1 on Tripadvisor with customers stating ‘Popped in for brunch. Staff were lovely, food amazing. Homemade soup the best. Would highly recommend.’ and ‘Went for breakfast as I do most weekends, had the full English very nice and certainly great value for money’

The current owner is offering a hand over period to introduce the purchaser to the regular customers and keep up the fantastic reputation the café already has.

At present our client doesn’t advertise, the custom is derived from passing tourists with ample regular customers and word of mouth recommendations.

There is plenty of scope to improve turnover such as opening longer hours, using social media, advertising, leaflet dropping.  Also, to increase the custom if desired, there are options to utilise marketing websites such as Just eat, Hungry House etc.

We feel this business would suit a partnership, or family ran business.
