Specialist sales agents HiltonSmythe say the diner generates a turnover of around £830,000 and are expecting a high level of interest in the sale.

HiltonSmythe say: “The business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart only due to the vendors wish to enjoy a well-earned retirement. He is keen to see his beloved food delivery service passed to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner (s) who can take this already thriving business to the next level.

“Post-lockdown, our clients decided to alter their business model, to make it easier to manage. They decided that having operated online only for such a long-time during lockdown, they would keep the business online, and not return to indoor customer dining.

“With both our clients in their 50s, it seemed the right time for them to make this change. Our clients also had a bespoke take-away counter constructed with a small waiting area- where customers could wait for their orders.

“The area is enjoying a renaissance in popularity, and has even been compared to Notting Hill, as an up and coming “trendy” area, where there are lots of food and drink establishments.

“The business currently has a licence to serve alcohol up until 12:00 midnight. The business has been known as its current trading name for 30 years and is regarded as one of the cornerstones of the local community.”

The business is being sold on a leasehold basis with 5 years remaining on the renewable lease. The rent is £4,513.86 per month.
