The business has been under our client’s careful ownership for over 15 years and has established an enviable reputation. The business is situated in North Shields near to Newcastle. North Shields is a town on the north bank of the River Tyne, in the metropolitan borough of North Tyneside, Tyne and Wear in North East England. Historically part of Northumberland, it is located eight miles North East of Newcastle upon Tyne.

The business boasts an enviable customer base and is not only supported locally, but also by passing trade due to its location in the centre of North Shields. Although the business is trading successfully with an annual turnover in excess of £175,000, there is still huge potential to increase revenue with the introduction of food during the week, or letting the bedrooms. The business does provide a Sunday lunch and serves on average 85 Sunday lunches per week.
