Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market on a leasehold basis an opportunity to purchase a traditional English tea room along with a successful Airbnb apartment. In the Mood tea room has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client since 2018 and has only now been introduced to the market as our clients currently have other business interests.
The business prides itself on the quality of its food which is freshly prepared on the premises using local ingredients wherever possible. The menu includes traditional staples such full breakfasts, lunches, and light bites, along with a selection of home baked fayre served in a pleasant tea room environment that can cater for 24 covers inside, with a further 16 external covers.
Currently the owners have decided to temporarily suspend trading within the tearoom due to staffing levels and other business commitments, but they fully intend to reopen as soon as they can, while bookings for the Airbnb side of the business remain unaffected and continue to generate income.
In addition to the tearoom the business also includes a well-established and popular Airbnb two bedroomed apartment, that has undergone a recent programme of refurbishment and generates extra income for the business.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover for the business by undertaking a robust marketing campaign, via local press and social media platforms, along with further promotion of a dedicated website for the business.
This is an outstanding turn-key business, which offers a new owner the opportunity to take this popular and growing business to the next level, this would be an ideal acquisition for an existing café owner.
