Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this stunning Public House/Restaurant & Inn which is located in the Cornish village of Gweek. The property has been a major feature in village for many years and has been in the careful hands of the current owners for the past 14 months. The business is now being offered for sale due to unforeseen personal reasons. Since ownership the property has been kept in good order and there has been continual investment in new equipment along with fixtures and fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. The Black Swan is owner operated and employs the help of 6 full time and 6 part time members of staff and has an annual turnover of £580,000. Approximately 40% of turnover comes from wet sales where you have one large bar area offering an extensive range of ales, wines, spirits, cocktails and soft drinks. Room income is approximately 31% of turnover where you have 4 en-suite guest bedrooms equipped with central heating, colour TV’s and tea & coffee making facilities. The remaining 29% of income comes from food sales where they serve a varied menu to include home made specials which are all freshly prepared to order on site using only the finest locally sourced produce. We believe that the business would thrive on a husband & wife team or experienced food based operators to enhance the food sales. The business already enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with many visiting tourists. This is a superb opportunity to purchase a business that has already benefited from significant investment which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this gem is not to be missed.
