Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market on a leasehold basis a well-established and very popular café business benefiting from a coastal location.  

The Shore Cafe has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client for a number of years and has only now been introduced to the market for sale as our client wishes to take well-earned retirement.

The business offers quality fayre in a pleasant and relaxed setting with patrons being able to dine both inside and outside taking advantage of the sea views.

The café has the ability to cater for 26 covers inside, with an outside area which can cater for 60. The business benefits from excellent local trade and return business from tourists and visitors to the area. It must also be noted that current turnover is generated on limited trading hours over 5 days a week, leaving a new owner with plenty of scope to increase trading options.

All fixtures and fitting are included in the sale along with;

  • Microwaves, fridges, freezers, double fryer, double grill, halogen oven, toaster, sandwich toasters, steamer and water boiler, dish washer, crockery for 60 plus including China cups and saucers, till, inside tables and chairs, outside tables benches plastic seats, cake domes.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover perhaps with a new owner embarking on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent produce offered, along with the introduction of an informative website to promote the business that could be further promoted, along with offering an outside catering service for private events to help increase the turnover for the business along with extending the opening hours.

Very rarely do such well-established, popular businesses come to the open market, therefore early viewings must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

We are advised as per the 2020 accounts, the business generated a turnover in the region of £75,000, with an adjusted net profit in the region of £25,000. Full financials can be made available upon further request.

The business is located in the popular village of Hest Bank, right on the shore.
