- Accommodation included
The business for sale is a multifaceted cafe, bar and truckstop with B&B rooms and additional accommodation.
Situated in an idyllic Somerset location, the business has quickly become a local favourite since establishment in 2011. Offering delicious, home-cooked food in a traditional pub setting, the current restaurant and bar area can seat up to 30 covers at any one time - with room for more upstairs. Customers are also able to take advantage of their useful takeaway service - with the business offering deliveries since the COVID-19 outbreak.
The premises benefits from a three-bedroom flat, currently utilised by the present owners, and an additional room for bed and breakfast guests.
Accessed just off a main single carriageway, the business also operates as a truckstop, allowing drivers to take advantage of overnight parking for a reasonable price.
Offered on a leasehold basis, rent is payable at a rate of £19,500. 5 years remain on the current lease agreement with the option to extend for a further 5 upon request.
The business is accessed just off a main single carriageway in Aschott, Somerset, boasting a large customer car park and a truckstop for overnight parking. Customers enter straight into the main restaurant and bar, with traditional pub interior and seating for up to 30. To this floor, there is also a fully equipped kitchen and office area.
A staircase rises to the first floor, where there is a second bar and two rooms for further seating as required. A fully enclosed, 3 bedroom apartment is available to be used as either owner accommodation or to rent privately as additional income. This floor is complete with a further bedroom used for bed and breakfast guests.
All of the relevant fixtures and fittings are to be included in the advertised sale price, including tables, chairs, kitchen equipment and furnishings for the flat. The current owner has advised they would be willing to stay on for a handover period as required.
This would be an ideal opportunity for a local entrepreneur with the passion to grow this business even further. Showing significant growth year on year, the business has seen a 20% increase in trade through 2020.
With the potential to add a second bed and breakfast room (subject to permission from the landlord), an increased focus on the bed and breakfast aspect of the business could see an increase in profit margins.
The business has already demonstrated diversity in it's approach to the COVID-19 pandemic, introducing a delivery service to its customers. Implementing this as a permanent service offering could increase their customer base even further.
