CAFE in Grassington for Sale.

Grassington is a small market town, however it feels like a village. Comprising a market square, fringed by shops offering everything from practical essentials to totally tempting luxuries, friendly cafes, restaurants and cosy hotels making Grassington a jewel in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. In 2020 and 2021 Grassington was transformed into the fictional Darrowby for the filming of Channel 5’s All Creatures Great and Small. The village hosts many events throughout the year meaning that footfall is boosted even further in addition to the coach loads of visitors, day trippers, walkers and cyclists that pass through the village daily. Current events include a fabulous music and arts event, the Grassington Festival each June and the celebrated Dickensian Festival each December. A recent addition to the calendar is a 'Grassington 1940s Weekend' in September which is extremely popular.

The business is currently run by husband, wife and son only, however provides a fabulous weekly turnover of £3,500 to £4,000 yet only open six days per week 9am to 4pm and without the first floor dining area being used. Showing net profits adjusted to £71,683. This is crying out for a new owner to not only utilise the first floor dining area but increase the menu plus fabulous potential to introduce supper openings to cater for all the tourists staying in the local B&B’s / Hotels and locals alike. Our clients are looking to semi retire after five successful years. Very rarely do businesses like this in Grassington come onto the open market and early viewing is essential.

The ground floor is tastefully decorated and has the counter with menu board above – this business operates a simple menu of mainly drinks, breakfast and hot and cold sandwiches / rolls. Seating for 16 with ease with a gorgeous roaring wood fire which proves very popular in the winter months. To the rear is the spacious kitchen with an array of commercial equipment including a dumb waiter to the first floor. Customer toilet. Outdoor courtyard area to the rear with further seating for eight customers. To the first floor is a second seating area for 20+ which is currently unused by our clients due to their limited workload and therefore ripe for a new owner to maximise this to increase the turnover even further. Off the upstairs dining area is a further store area / utility area with the dumb waiter plus staff changing with shower. The second floor provides further storage and owners office with Velux window making the room light and airy. To the front of the cafe is a seating area for a further 12+ diners benefitting from canopies to shield from the sun and heat lamps to keep people warm in the colder weather. EPC Band B.
