The Business

Our client has owned the property for approximately 7 years and during this time established a notable food led destination and locals establishment. The owners particularly focus on local freshly sourced food for their seasonal menus. The onset of the pandemic has encouraged our clients to reflect on the situation and they have now decided to retire. Therefore there is great potential for a new owner(s) to extend the current opening hours and look at developing the F&B offering as well as identify further sources of income over this notable site throughout the year. Trading accounts can be made available to interested parties following a formal viewing of the property.

There is currently a Supply Agreement deal with Adnams & The Queen put in place for 3 years from 1st July 2021. Details available on request.
