Hilton Smythe are privileged to offer to the market a once in a lifetime prime business ideally located in a much sought after trading location. The Italian Steakhouse Restaurant was established here over 5 years ago and later purchased by our clients, who due to family reasons are now reluctantly selling.
The business comes with an excellent reputation including a 4.5/5 customer rating from Tripadvisor (over 500 reviews), 5 star review on Facebook and 5.3/6 on Quandoo.
The Mediterranean themed restaurant specialises in succulent steaks, freshly made burgers, authentic pizzas, pasta, mixed grills and more.
Originally the business concentrated on walk in customers only, with busy periods being directly influenced by the increased Windsor visitor footfall in the summer, followed by Christmas parties and birthdays in the winter.
They have recently added on local deliveries through the Just Eat App which is proving so popular they have now nearly doubled the weekly turnover! Weekly sales from the App are averaging up to £2,000, which could further be increased by extending the opening hours currently offered.
Our clients have drastically improved the decor, lighting and equipment within the restaurant to allow any new buyer the ability to walk straight in and carry on trading.
A full handover will be offered.
