Description

Business
Owned and operated by a locally renowned and respected chef, with assistance from his second chef.

The Poopdeck is a long established and very profitable restaurant with a fantastic seafood based menu. Extremely popular with both the locals and tourists; as well as passing trade.

The current shortened opening hours are by the lifestyle choice of our client, and leave huge scope to grow an already successful trade, up For Sale due to the owners wish to take a well-earned retirement.

Licensed with A3 planning, the business would suit several wide and varied catering styles or cuisines. The current seafood offering is extremely popular and very appropriate given the premises location and is accompanied by a superb wines & liqueurs menu.

Catering for all patron sizes from more intimate or private dining, to pre-booked parties and functions. The restaurant prides itself on fish stocks freshly caught that morning, prepared and cooked to order.

A vibrant and professional looking website and online presence, including social media and excellent TripAdvisor feedback, help to create a well-established overall branding and image with busy online booking system.

With an imaginative menu including daily specials, the average spend per head is around £20 per person.

Perfect for a husband and wife team or chef and partner, plenty of scope remains for organic business growth, and new blood ideas.
