Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market the charming Tea for Two. This Vintage Traditional Kitchen and Tea Shop was originally founded in 2011, with our client successfully running the business since inception in 2013.

Tea for Two serve traditional home cooked food, breakfasts and sandwiches and offer various daily specials, tasty desserts and have a wonderful reputation for their afternoon tea’s. All accompanied by quality loose leaf teas and coffees. The business sees a high amount of repeat trade from the local community and further benefits from a high amount of passing trade due to its prime location. The business has excellent reviews on TripAdvisor.

The business reports a healthy turnover of circa £79,300, with a gross profit of 79%, as of the 2017 accounts.

The tea shop is quirky in style and the internal decor is pleasing to the eye and has been decorated to suit the business. Offering an appealing ‘olde worldle’ feel with a shabby chic presence with a vintage 50s’ feel with old British memorabilia and providing for 23+ covers. Upstairs in the cafe area is a further room which is currently unused and could be utilised to provide additional dining space if required.

We would urge early viewing of this turn key business which genuinely comes to the market due to our clients’ other business ventures.
