Our vendor clients took over the business in March 2012 and have totally refurbished it to a very high standard and since then they have built up a well established trade and reputation for good hospitality and excellent food with a large number of regular customers from the local community and surrounding area - currently rated No 1 on Trip Advisor. Due to the excellent location it also benefits from the many visitors to Newmarket all year round but especially during the racing season.
The business is currently being run by the owners full-time, two full-time kitchen, one full-time front of house and 5 part-time staff. Due to other business commitments our vendor clients have decided that they wish to assign the lease. Advised turnover is circa £280,800 (inc. VAT) for year ending April 2015 split 20% wet, 80% food.
There is further growth potential for new owner operators to build on this already successful business by extending opening hours to all day and by possibly introducing theme nights with entertainment.
