Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market the Courtyard Cafe, much loved community cafe business established approx 10 years ago and purchased by our client just under 2 years ago. The ‘Turnkey’ business is now being sold due to another exciting job role our client can’t turn down.

The daytime cafe offers a selected menu which includes:

  • Traditional breakfasts
  • Omelettes
  • Large Kids menu
  • Sandwiches/Wraps/ Paninis (served hot or cold) with salad
  • Large selection of salads
  • Jacket potatoes
  • Lunchtime specials
  • Fresh bean to cup coffees, teas and hot chocolate
  • Ice cream scoop menu and milkshakes
  • Cold drinks
  • Desserts, snacks and crisps
All menu options can be enjoyed inside or prepared to takeaway, the cafe is renowned for being children friendly with a large choice of games and toys available including a designated sitting area in the rear garden. Customers with dogs are also welcome.

There is free Wi-Fi to encourage customers visiting for meetings and there is also a choice of both vegan and vegetarian options available.

The cafe comes with excellent reviews on TripAdvisor (4.5/5), Zomato & Facebook.

Our client admits he is running the business to more suit his family needs and offers a menu he can prepare and serve himself; any new owner would benefit from extending the menu to attract new customers, especially in the afternoons and weekends.

The current business use is A1 which any new owner may look to change.

There are no business rates currently and a new long lease in place making this very attractive to any buyer looking to take the business to the next level.

We believe there are many options available for any new buyer to increase the current turnover levels:

  • Extend menu and introduce freshly made juices
  • Extending opening hours
  • Attract more group bookings - including children’s birthdays, reading groups, business meetings etc.
  • Extend the gluten free and vegan options
  • Add extraction unit and fryers
  • Add a delivery partner such as Deliveroo or Just Eat to significantly increase delivery sales
  • Upgrade the garden area to attract larger bookings & families
  • Add an additional member of staff
Hilton Smythe recommend early viewing. 

The business operates within the vat level at around £72,000 per year in limited hours.

The business is run and managed by our client with occasional help from his wife when required
