Business Description

This very well established and TripAdvisor top 5 rated eatery currently offers a full and varied menu of classic international cuisine, ranging from gourmet burgers, steaks, chicken, seafood options and 'blackboard specials' to Italian, Eastern Mediterranean and North African dishes, together with an excellent choice of associated side orders and indulgent desserts.

The Bistro also offers a wide selection of creative vegetarian, gluten-free and children's meal options and is renowned for its hearty traditional roast Sunday lunches.

All food is prepared freshly to order in its extensively equipped commercial catering kitchen employing the finest and freshest, locally sourced and authentic imported produce and served in the very pleasant surroundings of a tastefully furnished, but unpretentious in-house dining area, which may accommodate up to sixty covers in style and comfort and is a popular venue for private parties and occasional music entertainment evenings.

The Clock Bistro also boasts fitted traditional fee of tie licensed wine bar facilities associated with an establishment of this kind and would naturally furnish any enthusiastic purchaser with truly vast scope for continued growth, not least with regard to the possible provision of local delivery and outside catering services and to operating hugely extended hours in order to fully exploit year round local and passing trade demand.

The business would also benefit by adopting a more vigorous marketing policy of its excellent existing facilities and services, particularly with reference to the possible introduction of online ordering through it's own dedicated website and to further development of its social media presence, in order to improve upon the already high levels of turnover it has achieved since being established in its present form some five successful years ago by the current proprietor, with the aid of a small, experienced and motivated team of four full time staff who would be an asset to any purchaser.
