Occupying a prime location on the high street of an affluent village, this business has been transformed from a café to a beautiful wine bar attracting a customer base who enjoy great wines, world beers and great coffee. It is multi-use, with the café being the focus during the day serving barista coffees, cakes and light lunches, but it is also licensed from 12 noon seven days a week.

It currently operates as a bar in the evening from Thursday to Saturday, which has been highly successful due to the completely different offering in the village, which has largely traditional pubs. The venue has been successful with events such as Wine Tasting and private hires for parties and events. Additionally, the super-popular pop-up dining events have expanded the potential revenue further with Italian and tapas nights and themed experience pop-ups for different cuisines such as Caribbean to Vietnamese food.

The café covers 34 inside, and a comfortable 40 with the bar area, with additional seating in the Belgian beer garden-style courtyard for 18 and 10 in the sunny frontage of the building popular during the day and night to take advantage of the sun and high street.

It also holds the last available alcohol license in the village, meaning any other restaurant opening would not be able to take advantage of what is known as a go-to place for a drink and night out in this vibrant, busy village for bars every day of the week.

The company has a CIBLS loan, which will be offset against profits. Repayments don't start until late next year and the loan is 100% government-backed. As the business rent has been reduced, this means the outgoings are in effect the same.

The bar comes with 2 parking spaces in a private carpark, there is parking for customers nearby and on the high street, plus good transport links. Eccleshall has high footfall during the evenings, as it is a popular drinking town and this is the only wine and cocktail bar within 10 miles. Due to the bar's unique nature, there should be plenty of trade for the new owner. The well-equipped premises provide a relaxed, warm, and friendly environment for customers to enjoy their coffee, cake, or glass of wine in.

All equipment will transfer over with the business sale, including assets fridges (worth approximately £15-20k), dishwashers, and much more. Thanks to this, the new owner should be able to get to work straight away. The current stock of alcohol and food is also worth at least £5k. The current owner is happy to offer an initial transitional period, to ensure there is a smooth and efficient business handover.

This business would be ideal for anyone, who has an interest in owning a bar in a brilliant location, especially if they are considering setting up an Italian, Spanish or European style restaurant, as the current dining options in the town are only for traditional pub food, Indian, or Chinese. This business would work especially well as a partnership opportunity.

There is huge potential for growth, as there is massive scope to put on special offers and host outdoor events. There is also the option to extend the bar’s opening hours, which could be a great way to attract more trade. The business already has a brilliant, easy-to-use website and popular presence on social media, with over 1,500 followers on Facebook (@sancerrecafe) and almost 1,100 followers on Instagram (@sancerrecafe). It would be beneficial if the new owner continued to utilise and optimise these channels.
