Business Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular restaurant business, which is ideally located within the town of Barry, Vale of Glamorgan.
The family run business was originally established in 1972 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients’ other work situations. The business operates 5 evenings per week and generates a turnover in the region of £250,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.
The business has an excellent reputation for serving fresh, high quality traditional English and French cuisine. All the ingredients are locally sourced and freshly prepared to order. The restaurant is also well known for its extensive fish list and homemade desserts. The property boasts approximately 122 sq. metres of floor space, with the main restaurant offering between 50-60 covers, as well as a full commercial kitchen.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the very high quality of the food and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The business also has excellent reviews on the very popular travel website Trip Advisor.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by offering service on Mondays and Sundays, as the business is currently closed on these days. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent food and service offered. The business would also benefit from the launch of a website to promote the concern, which could incorporate online booking facilities.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and popular restaurant business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended.

The business is located on the busy Broad Street and is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops and businesses, therefore benefiting from a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from on-street parking facilities to the front of the premises.
