Our clients offer a wide variety of fayre including all day breakfasts, hot and cold sandwiches with a selection of fillings, salads, jacket potatoes, soups, burgers, kids’ meals and specials, as well as a variety of hot and cold beverages.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the food and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours or perhaps offering a sandwich delivery round to the local businesses within the area. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign and develop a website to promote the services offered. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
