Business Description
Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market Lobsters.  The only available fish and chips business in South Harrow, established by our client in 1992 and now offered for sale due to ill health and retirement.

The large A3 unit offers a 32 cover restaurant which could easily extended by any new owner.  The left hand side pharmacy recently added a full length rear extension to double its existing retail space which should give any new buyer the confidence to apply for a similar addition to this excellent unit.

Our client recently spent over £85,000 transforming the above first and second floors into 2 x two bed flats.  With a combined rental income of £27,600 per year, ensures there is no rent paid for the business space which in this area is now impossible to find.

There is a new 20 year lease available with the business and due to the closure of two other fish and chips businesses due to redevelopment in the area , any new buyer will be able to capitalise on the increase demand for this type of business.

Lobsters enjoys a very loyal customer base, many of which have visited the business for over 20 years!  The business currently is run on limited opening hours serving a traditional menu including fish and chips, pies, sausages and chips, saveloys, burgers, kebabs, chicken and chips, sides and cold drinks.

We believe there is still huge scope to develop the business by extending the current opening hours, offer a delivery service in the area and take card payments.  Also introducing a website and having a presence on social media to promote the business could prove beneficial.

The large shop unit would appeal to any similar operator looking to modernise and extend the current space to more than double current turnover or to several branded restaurants looking for a spacious A3 unit on a high footfall community parade.


Lobsters fish bar occupies a highly desirable trading position on Shaftesbury Parade, Shaftesbury Avenue, South Harrow.

The business sits in the middle of the area's main retail parade, including a Pharmacy, Coral betting shop, a mix of high street banks, Tesco supermarket, McDonald's and independent retailers. The parade is extremely busy and units like this rarely come onto the open market.

South Harrow is seeing continuous development and is the result of the growing urbanisation and easy access to central London by rail and London underground.  The nearest tube station is South Harrow and mainline station is Harrow on the Hill.
