Gator Business Sales were pleased to be contacted, on recommendation, by the owners of Old Farmhouse Restaurant & Tea Rooms, a quintessential New Forest restaurant and tea rooms located in the village of Burley.  We were also somewhat surprised to learn that their previous broker had not been successful in finding a buyer for them.

Once instructed, our marketing was designed to highlight the many advantages and unique features of the business and property, and we were delighted to be able to secure competing offers for our clients.

Whilst a 300 year old thatched roof building was undoubtedly one of the key attractions of the Old Farmhouse, it also understandably necessitated a lengthy due diligence, with particular focus on the dilapidations of the property.  Gator Business Sales worked with both vendors and purchasers to ensure a positive outcome and, interestingly, a completion of the sale during the pandemic lockdown.

“Thanks to Gator Business Sales, we finally completed the sale of our Restaurant & Tea Rooms.  We found Mark’s professionalism, knowledge and support invaluable.  He found the buyers for us, and his work between all parties was second to none.  We would thoroughly recommend Gator Business Sales to anyone selling their business.” – Peter and Cathy Cutler, former owners of Old Farmhouse Restaurant & Tea Rooms.
