For many years Bude has been known as one of Cornwall’s most popular family seaside resorts, thanks to its large sandy beach, visitor accommodation and facilities. As a result the town has a brisk tourist trade, but the area known as Bude-Stratton also has a vibrant living and working community of over 18,000 that supports the development and growth of the local economy and makes use of the local shops, cafes, services and restaurants. Ongoing growth in the area includes the Binhamy Road housing development, which by 2023 will have added a further 420 houses. Bude-Stratton lies next to the ‘Atlantic Highway’ A39, which runs to Bideford (25 miles) and Barnstaple (34 miles) to the north, and down to Tintagel (19 miles) and Padstow (35 miles) to the south, and carries a regular bus service linking these coastal towns.


Situated within a part residential part commercial area known as Pethericks Mill, the premises overlooks Neet nature reserve and the coastal footpath with Bude Town Centre being a 10 minute walk away.


The premises was original a kiosk and tea gardens with our clients having developed the premises to create covered restaurant dining with glazed frontage overlooking the nature reserve, air conditioning and canvas roofing.  Within the restaurant there are covers for 54 with a further 22 covers within 5 pods that have been created to provide private dining space.  The original kiosk building provides the commercial kitchen, bar servery and preparation areas for the running of the business.  Certainly one of the attractions for customers is that of the unique decor with includes artificial flower wall, feature wallpaper, banana trees and wall mounted ostrich head to name but a few.  To the front of the property is a customer car parking area which is shared with the other businesses on site.


Our clients are inviting offers for the Leasehold interest by way of an assignment of the existing 10 year lease, approximately 9 years remaining, at a current rent of £11,750 per annum.


Having been in the same ownership for the past 8 years the current owner established, developed and grew the existing Tapas and Cocktail Bar business.  The current owner undertakes a managerial role within the business with a pool of approximately 15 staff (some full time some part time) with 1 x full time manager, 1 x full time chef, 2 x junior sous chefs.  It is thought the wage bill could be reduced with partnership operation or the extension of opening hours which are currently 5pm – close 5 days per week in the winter and 3pm – close 5 days per week in the summer.  During the last 18 months the owner has implemented a number of changes for ease of management including online table booking service, ipad table service and table buzzer service.  Further accountancy information available upon request.  In December 2022 the business was awarded a ‘Top 100 Restaurants in the UK’ within the Opentable restaurant awards.
