The premises are shown on the Valuation Office Rating web site as having a RV of £12,250. We understand from the owners that rates payable are approx £50 per month allowing for small business relief however interested parties should check this information prior to proceeding.


The premises are held on lease until October 2018 and discussions are in hand regarding the terms of the new lease.  The rent will be no more than £18,000pa and it is anticipated that the figure will be less than this.  Further details are available on request.


The accounts for YE 31st March 2018 are expected to show takings of around £92,300. This is slightly less than 2017 when takings were £109,902, largely due to the owners deciding to take Thursdays off and closing for 2 weeks in January and one week in November for holidays.  There is great scope for further increasing takings given more publicity and use of social media. We calculate that the adjusted profits will be around £30,000 depending on wage costs.  Further accounts information is available to genuinely interested parties. Currently, the two owners work more or less full time with part time assistance.  Current opening hours are Mon – Sat 8.30am to 4.30pm and Sunday 9.30 am to around 4.30 pm.
