This business has operated as a mediterranean style restaurant on this very prominent, high street location for 15 years and was purchased by the vendor with the intention of creating a vibrant, addition to this busy market town in the heart of gloucestershire, serving a very high quality menu of dishes that have turned out to be very popular.
The business had been a tea-shop but the vendor invested in a high quality refurbishment of the premises that included the restaurant and food preparation areas as well as the al fresco areas to the premises.
Since refurbishment of this period building to high spec kitchen and chic dining area décor, the restaurant has been busy since day one and has proved to be extremely popular with local residents who enjoy the cosy atmosphere and high quality food on offer, which is under the management, day to day, of a highly professional full time staff, including 3x kitchen and 4x front of house.
The menu is made up of quite typical mediterranean options, geared toward traditional British tastes and also includes a very popular range of Pizza dishes with a varied selection of starters and side dishes. The restaurant is fully licensed.
Even though the restaurant is situated in the centre of tourist activities in Gloucestershire, this business does not rely upon seasonal custom but rather, takes advantage of this discrete town’s busy commercial and residential population, which has led to consistent non-seasonal trading.
The business operates in the mornings as a regular destination spot for locals getting coffee, tea and breakfast treats and then runs into the usual lunch trade. Evenings see the business become a traditional mediterranean restaurant and pizzeria.
