In recent years the business has been run as a traditional British café serving a range of hot and cold drinks, breakfast, sandwiches, snacks, jacket potatoes; light lunches and salads in the summer and Cream Teas.
The agents believe that the location so close to a large numbers of coach holiday guests together with the opportunity to expand the Sunday lunch trade and prepacked sandwiches on coach departure day could bring a substantial turnover.
This business enjoyed two peaks seasons per annum as it is located close to coaching holiday hotels – one in the summer season and one in the turkey and tinsel season in November/December.
