Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market an exciting opportunity to acquire (on a leasehold basis) an exceptionally well run and performing, turnkey licenced restaurant with an excellent reputation associated with a strong and consistent brand, with the business only now coming to the open market as it’s our client’s desire to leave the industry and relocate.
The current business was established in 2017 and has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client ever since and has grown the business to an impressive level of turnover.
The restaurant has undergone a substantial programme of refurbishment, and offers a warm and friendly environment for patrons to enjoy their exceptional, breakfast light lunch or pre theatre evening dinner menu along with patrons being able to pop in for an alcoholic beverage, whilst taking advantage of the prime Covent Garden location.
The business offers a quality dining experience with the main restaurant area being able to accommodate 36 – 38 covers, with a further 16-18 possible external covers and the current owner has indicated that there is also the possibility to convert the lower floor of the building to increase the capacity.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by introducing some further additions to the menu along with the possible expansion of the lower floor and undertaking a robust marketing campaign via local press, radio, and social media, along with further promotion of the dedicated website to help increase turnover.
The current owner has also indicated that they would be happy to offer an extended handover / shadowing period for the new owner if required.
