Business Description
Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this very busy Tapas Restaurant & Bar which is located in the harbour town of Falmouth, Cornwall. The business was established by our clients back in June 2018 and is reluctantly being offered for sale so that they can enjoy a well deserved retirement.
Since ownership they have undertaken a complete refurbishment of the Restaurant/Bar and kitchen and invested in new equipment along with fixtures & fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. Lemon Twist Tapas Bar is owner operated and employs the help of 7 full time and 5 (seasonal) part time members of staff and has an annual turnover of £550,000 with a healthy (GP). They serve simple rustic fresh tapas with a fusion of classic Mediterranean cooking along with fresh local Cornish sea food. All fayre is freshly prepared to order on site using only the finest local produce. The bar serves local beers and wines as well as a large amount their own made to order cocktails, fresh local coffee & homemade cakes. The restaurant benefits from its own private function room, and is very popular with a range of customers. There is an alfresco heated dining area with (40) covers which looks across the marina and is very popular during summer months.
We believe that there is further potential to increase trade should you wish to do so by promoting the function room in the winter months. The business already enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with many visiting tourists. This is a superb opportunity to purchase a growing business with further potential which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended.
