Property Description

In the busy surfing resort of Westward Ho! facing towards the Atlantic Ocean with its long sandy beach and famous golf course. This cafe is well placed to take advantage of local as well as the tourist trade, being located next door to the Spar Supermarket, close to the main car park, village green and within a short walk of the sea. The A39 road provides access from the towns of Barnstaple, Bideford, Northam, Appledore and Bude. It lies at the south end of Northam Burrows and faces westward into Bideford Bay, opposite Saunton Sands and Braunton Burrows. This is an expanding resort with many new apartments being built overlooking the sea and in Bideford several new housing estates are being developed so trade will continue to expand.

This ground and part first floor lock-up cafe offers 64 covers, 20 of which are upstairs and 8 are outside in the tidy forecourt. The cafe is comprehensively equipped and furnished throughout with a range of bench and table seating. There is a fully equipped commercial kitchen with preparation rooms, dishwasher room, store and stock rooms, ladies, gents and disabled cloakrooms.

The current rent is £25,000 per annum with a lease of 21 years commencing from August 2017. A copy of the lease is available to inspect for seriously interested parties. An incoming buyer will need to provide the usual bank statements and trade/professional references for landlord’s approval and proof of ID.

This is a very popular seaside cafe operated by the owner and 13 staff, opening throughout the year (closing for 7 weeks during the winter through choice). Rock Pool Cafe is open 7 days a week from 9 am to 4 pm. There is obvious scope to increase hours further and to take advantage of the takeaway trade. Having an extensive menu the cafe serves all day breakfasts, pizzas, pancakes, waffles, baguettes, jacket potatoes, soft drinks, milkshakes, teas and coffees etc. Takings circa £512,000 for the year ending July 2022 and accounts can be made available to interested parties once a viewing has taken place, with the vendor’s permission.
