Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular restaurant business in Finedon, Northamptonshire. The business was established by our clients’ in 2003 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 5 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £50,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 70%. Lovejoys is a family run restaurant and serves delicious homemade English food with a modern twist within a warm and friendly atmosphere. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the fayre and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours, as the business is currently being run at a pace to suit our clients.

There is already a website in place to promote the restaurant, which may benefits from online booking facilities.
