Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this very popular restaurant Blue Velvet in Tiverton Devon.

The business was established in 1975 and has been in our client’s very careful ownership since 2017.

Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s other business commitments.

The business greatly benefits from being the only one of its kind in the area.

The restaurant is open 6 days per week and generates the turnover from freshly prepared meals including specials and traditional Sunday lunch.

The business has an excellent reputation and is renowned for its high-quality food and service, which has generated a very loyal client base with a lot of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals.

The business was refurbished and rebranded due to covid 19 as the influx of coffee shops being bolted onto other businesses so the business concept changed to a steak house using the hot stone principle.

The business also hosts events and functions such as:
• Weddings
• Birthday celebrations
• Anniversaries
• Business lunch meetings

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours.

The business would also benefit from a small marketing campaign to advertise the business and cuisine offered.

We feel this is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this popular and thriving business to the next level therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this very popular restaurant business in Tiverton Devon.

Tiverton’s revival in recent years began with the construction of the A361 (known as the North Devon Link Road) In the late 1980s.

In the 1990s, a new industrial estate was built at Little Gornhay on the north-eastern edge of the town, and a new junction was added to the Link Road, with a distributor road (now the A396) into the town, which has become its main gateway. Great Western Way, linking this road to the Exeter Road along the line of the old railway, These two roads opened up a new aspect to the town and paved the way for expansion.
