REF 6317 – Leasehold Chinese Restaurant & Accommodation

Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this leasehold Chinese restaurant with accommodation located in a much sought-after area of Ingatestone, Essex.


Tim's Palace has been trading on High Street since 1996 with our client in ownership since 2011. The business has become a very well-known and popular restaurant with a large base of regular customers and a good reputation. Tim’s Palace caters for a large amount of takeaway customers in addition to dine-in customers.


The business is positioned on a busy street in Ingatestone close to many other local businesses, shops and the town Church. The area is well linked by the A12 with excellent public transport links in place and there are three parking spaces to the rear with roadside parking in the immediate vicinity.


Tim's Palace is only being offered for sale due the retirement of our client. This presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operating team to take the business to the next level.


The building is available on a Full Repair and Insure lease (FRI lease). This is the most common form of commercial lease. The current lease is 25 years and began in 1996 at a cost of £601 per week. This lease includes the accommodation positioned within the first floor of this spacious property.


Tim's Palace operates from the ground floor of a spacious, end-terraced property within a parade of local shops and businesses. The business has large signage in place above a mainly glazed frontage with central entrance. Inside, the main dining area offers seating for 50 and is presented well with traditional Chinese themed décor throughout. The bar is fitted with one draught beer pump, glass washer, wine chiller and fridge freezer. The service area includes a plate warming cabinet. There are ladies and gents toilets positioned to the rear of the space and the kitchen and store room are to the side. The kitchen is fully fitted with an air extraction system, rice cooker, hot cupboard, 9-hob gas cooker with double oven, a large rice/pancake/noodle steamer, 8 hob wok range, stainless steel food preparation unit, three upright fridges, three chest freezers and a microwave oven. All equipment is of good quality.

The first floor comprises of a spacious flat – this comprises of three bedrooms, kitchen, utility room and bathroom. This is currently occupied by staff and could benefit from some cosmetic upgrading.


The business is currently operating with two members of part-time staff in addition to our client working on a full-time basis.


Tim's Palace has traded solidly since opening. We are advised that the business currently has annual turnover of £234,000.


This is a well-established high street restaurant that has been serving Chinese cuisine since 1996 and can easily be adapted to offer an alternative menu such as Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese, Nepalese or Indian. There is plenty of scope for growth with the introduction of a website, online ordering system and delivery service. Additional income can be generated form renting the flat above, however it will require refurbishment or can be continued as staff accommodation. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised.
