The business was established in 1946 and is renowned for its superb quality and assortment of fish and seafood. Our clients purchased the business 3 years ago and are now offering it for sale due to them wishing to relocate.
Since ownership they have continually invested in new fixtures & 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.
