Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of The Eating Room which is a well-established Cafe / restaurant with a renowned reputation amongst residents. This is a superb opportunity to take on a high turnover local business in an area teeming with customers.

The Eating Room was founded by the current owner in 2018 and the business has been a real labour of love for him, accruing an impressive number of regular customers and a burgeoning reputation.

The business is now being sold albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart only due to a need to relocate, possibly abroad. The vendor is keen to see his beloved food business pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner who can take it to the next level.

The Eating Room offers an extensive range of English and Chinese dishes which are freshly prepared on the premises using local ingredients wherever necessary. The menu includes:
Classic Dishes.
Ploughman lunches.
Homemade Burgers.
Rice dishes.
Chop Suey dishes.
Peking Sauce dishes.
Chow Mein dishes.
Curry dishes.
Hot and cold drinks.
Daily specials.

The sale will include the company Facebook page and the business enjoys great visibility on the internet.

Scope to improve:
Advertising and marketing campaign, a local leaflet drop always yields good results.
Maximise the use of social media.
Website ideally with an online ordering facility.
Extend the opening hours.
Expand the outside catering side of the business.

Reasons to Buy:
A well-established business with an enviable reputation and many existing customers.
All fixtures and fittings included making this a real Turnkey business opportunity.
Current owner happy to offer a handover to ensure the continued success.
Ideal owner managed or partnership business.
Low running costs with inexpensive rent and no business rates.

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
