Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this delightful and well established Tea Room & Restaurant which is located in Bourton-On-The-Water. The business has been established for over 40 years and has been in the careful hands of our clients since 2011 and is being offered for sale due to a period of ill health in 2018 which has triggered a well deserved retirement. Since ownership they have continually invested in new equipment along with 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. The Chestnut Tree is owner operated and employs the help of 2 full time and 10 part time members of staff and has an annual turnover of circa £325,000 with a GP of (80%). The menu is traditional English with popular meals such as fish and chips and cottage pie, along with sandwiches, baguettes salads and soups. Cream teas are a house speciality along with advanced booked celebration teas. The menu was developed to allow just a chef and salad bar assistant to manage the kitchen in all but the busiest of periods. Currently producing a good profit even with a reduced takeaway menu to comply with Covid-19 advice and regulations.
We believe that there is further potential to increase trade should you wish by expanding upon the current opening times and opening in the evenings, introducing an ice cream cart and there is scope to increase the covers in the outside area to the frontage. The business 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 an established business which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this gem is not to be missed
