TRADING & BUSINESS
The business was opened in November 2018 by hands on local owners. Due to other business commitments and future plans the current owners have decided to sell.
The business has seen continued growth month on month since it was incorporated, and the business owners feel there is a great opportunity to continue to enhance this exceptional restaurant. Please note that the peak season of summer trade has yet to be experienced.
The take-away element of the business makes up approximately 10% of the business takings.
