Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market The House by Hilly Gant, a highly rated and well established restaurant in Braintree. 

This well respected business opportunity looks to use locally sourced British produce, and was originally established by our client in 2015, before rebranding in 2022. 

Only now does the business come to the market due to our clients desire to focus on other business ventures. 

The business has built an excellent reputation and loyal customers, offering quality produce. 

Key selling points -

  • Exceptional reputation locally and very well established having been a restaurant / wine bar since 1982, the go-to restaurant for special occasions.
  • 13,000 followers on social media.
  • Awarded an AA Rosette for ‘culinary excellence’
  • Ready to trade from day one – NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY, the restaurant is currently staffed and running well, the perfect opportunity for someone who has never worked in the industry.
  • The restaurant is in an excellent condition throughout.
Scope to improve -

  • Extend opening hours
  • Introduce outside catering or takeaway/delivery services. 
All fixtures, fittings and equiptment in the restaurant are included in the sale. The kitchen is airconditioned, has a walk in fridge, and a ‘Rationale’ oven. There is in excess of £50k worth of equipment in the kitchen most of which is less than 3 years old.

Very rarely do restaurants with so much history, character or reputation come onto to the open market, and we therefore advise early viewings to avoid disappointment.

We are advised that the business is fully run and managed, with 14 members of staff. 

The business hours are -

Monday - Closed
Tuesday – 6:00pm - Close
Wednesday – 6:00pm - Close
Thursday – 6:00pm - Close
