Hilton Smythe introduces to the market Istanbul Barbeque Restaurant. This distinctive vibrant restaurant offers a uniquely different themed menu to either dine in or take away.
Immaculately presented throughout the Istanbul Barbeque Restaurant has recently been extended and undergone a complete refurbishment programme costing circa £70,000. The restaurant now offers a cheerful and relaxed dining experience with seating for 48 covers all served from the spotless commercial fully fitted kitchen.
The restaurant is very well supported by the local community and visitors alike with many clients regularly returning, and has established a fantastic reputation since being originally founded by our client some eleven years ago. We feel that with an injection of marketing and advertising, in particular introducing a website and having a presence on social media sites would further promote awareness of the business in particular to the tourist market to generate additional income.
Although currently a themed restaurant, the menu also includes international cuisine. The versatility of the premises lends to the option of offering alternative cuisine if so desired and extended trading hours to take advantage of lunchtime trade would certainly pay dividends.
Additionally, the business boasts excellent owner’s accommodation above the business, ideal for a husband and wife team or small family.
Naturally, early viewing of this charming business in the much sought after location is highly recommended.
The business is located in the affluent market town of Louth in Lincolnshire with a residential population circa £15,500.
