Family run Tea Room and Vintage/Gift shop.
The business has been running for almost 5 years. We have a very large social media following (for an independent) and a fantastic regular client base.
We provide typical tea room fare, cakes, ice cream, sandwiches and soups etc and run a weekly special. Seating can currently hold 26 people but with the retail side of thing taken away, there is potential to hold up to 40 covers. (See further down for details on seating upstairs).
We hold two regular craft sessions and a book club which are extremely popular. We also run regular craft classes, including crochet, sewing and furniture painting.
We cater for children's parties, baby showers, hen parties and also had the pleasure of holding wedding receptions. These are usually held in our upstairs lounge. We have Afternoon Teas, cream teas and cater for outside events.
The other element to the business offers our customers a wide range quirky gift ideas old and new. We are a stockist of several high end brands including, Vintro luxury chalk paint, Powder (a range of scarves, socks, sunglasses, handbags, hats and gloves and accessories), which are extremely popular with our clientele. Also 'IF' a very popular range of paper/stationary goods. We have also recently introduced a small range of haberdashery items which works very well with our craft sessions.
We also paint furniture which sells very well.
To any prospective buyer, we are aware that the retail side of things may not be something of interest to you, so with this in mind we are sure that the use of the upstairs for additional seating would be extremely lucrative! Despite the rooms up stairs currently being used for painting workshops and craft rooms there is nothing to stop you adding another 40+ covers!
