Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular restaurant & bar in the seaside town of Hornsea, East Riding of Yorkshire,

The business was originally established in the 1960s and has been in our clients’ careful ownership since 2008. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire for retirement. The business operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £100,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.

Our clients’ offer a wide variety of freshly prepared fayre, using only the finest locally sourced produce. The restaurant is very attractively furnished and is fitted out to suit the trade with approximately 30 covers. The licenced bar is extremely well fitted out and boasts a further 32 covers plus standing areas. The property also offers spacious 3 bedroom accommodation to the first floor, which could be used by new owners or let out to generate further income.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The restaurant and bar boasts excellent reviews on the popular travel website Trip Advisor.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, as the business is currently run at a pace to suit our clients. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent fayre and service offered. We also feel the business would benefit from the launch of a website to promote the business, which could incorporate online booking facilities.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Swiss Cottage Restaurant & Bar occupies substantial two storey premises, ideally located within the seaside resort town of Hornsea, East Riding of Yorkshire. The property is surrounded by a mix of residential and commercial properties, just a few minutes’ walk from the beautiful beach, therefore the business benefits from a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The business further benefits from good car parking facilities, with a large car park opposite the premises.
