Business Description

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Maddys, a long-established town centre restaurant and chippy, For Sale due only to our client's wish for a well earnt retirement.  

A busy and popular chip shop takeaway and 38 cover sit-down restaurant business, with liquor license. Locally and more widely renowned, there is also a fantastic passing trade during the tourist season.

In our client's careful ownership for decades, the reputation locally is superb.
