Gator Business Sales are pleased to offer for sale this well established, profitable and very popular coffee shop and café.

Central location in an historic market town approx. 3 miles from Salisbury and 8 miles from Stonehenge.

Busy throughout the day with a good mix of regulars and visitors to the area.  Fantastic (genuine!) reviews on both TripAdvisor and Google.

The business is particularly well-known for its breakfast and brunch options, together with its selection of home-made cakes.

A particular feature of the café is its attractive outdoor courtyard area which has recently been extended.  This offers 33 well spaced covers.  Inside there are a further 27 covers, nicely arranged through two dining areas.

Turnover has increased significantly since the Covid restrictions were lifted in spring 2021.  Sales for the most recently completed financial year (November 2021-October 2022) were £216,245 inclusive of VAT, which is a notable 44% increase on the same period pre-Covid.

Secure lease with favourable terms.

A3 planning consent, FSA 5 star hygiene rating, and alcohol license.

TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award winner.

Quality fixtures and fittings throughout.

Health issues force a reluctant sale.

This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire an established and profitable food service business with a stellar reputation.
