Potential for Growth
Viewing Highly Advised
Rarely does such a long established restaurant with a reputation as good as Crofters come onto the market, and to also be situated on the highly sought after North Norfolk coast will no doubt mean that there will be significant interest in it. Having been in the same hands for over 30 years the owners are now looking to be able to enjoy their retirement and to pass the baton on to someone new.
Sheringham is a delightful coastal town famed for its steam railway which brings thousands of visitors to it every year. Being one of the few restaurants in the town the business enjoys regular custom from the railway in addition to those attending the Little Theatre, the 40’s weekend and of course those coming to have fun on the beach. The restaurant is also very popular with the locals who return time and time again which gives a good all year round trade.
A little gem of a business, with much history and following, very profitable but with scope to grow further, this is one that has to be looked at.
THE BUSINESS ITSELF
Currently operating on limited days and hours it still enjoys a turnover in excess of £115k with the high G.P that one would expect from such an operation. Whilst the internal feel of the restaurant and the evening food offering is one of Austrian and Bavarian style, during the day more traditional British cuisine is served and of course on a Sunday a delicious roast is the dish of the day. This very much gives the new owner great opportunity to adjust the menu to suit their own ideas and influences. Fully licensed up to 12 pm and with a 5 Star Food Hygiene rating, this has all the key ingredients that one would look for in such a business.

Occupying an ideal position at the beach end of the high street, this single storey terrace property gives a warm welcome as you enter inside. With cosy booth seating providing 32 covers the restaurant is both intimate yet full of atmosphere whilst the wood panel walls adorned with ornaments in keeping with the style offer much to look at and to talk about. To the rear of the restaurant is a well stocked bar area with a large selection of wines together with a coffee machine, fridge, till and service points.
Moving through into the kitchen you will find all that is needed to cater for your customers including a 6 burner range with fryer, plate warmer, stainless steel work surfaces, shelving and fridge freezers.
Included in the lease of the restaurant is the rear yard area complete with useful outbuildings. The retro style toilet serving the restaurant can be found out here and this quirk is one of the delights of the business which the customers seem to love! The large concrete yard has vehicle access and so the owners make use of it for parking for themselves. In addition there is a good size store room complete with a range of units and work surfaces where produce is kept as well as the likes of the peeler, ice machine and Hobart mixer. The wine store is adjoined to this but has the benefit of it’s own separate entrance.
All in all the premises offers much character and history and a sense of nostalgia which can be found lacking in so many restaurants nowadays. Combined with the potential that there is to significantly increase the turnover of the business, why would you not wish to arrange a viewing?
