Property description

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Great Walsingham Barns Café, which was established by our client in 2011 on a site where there had been a tearoom for many years before. Our client is now selling on to concentrate on their pie making business.

Great Walsingham Barns Café is a name that is synonymous with the area, having many repeat local customers as well as a large proportion of visitors to the area. Great Walsingham Barns Café is known for its Sundays Lunches and freshly made pies; our client will still continue to supply pies to the café. It is considered by many to be the best cafe in North Norfolk and they serve the very best of local North Norfolk food, as well as excellent teas and coffee.

The business is currently open Wednesday – Sunday 10am – 4pm, but there is huge scope to open earlier, close later and open 7 days a week, especially as the café is on a route that many cyclists use, therefore an ideal stop off. The menu includes pies, roasts, fish, vegetarian options, hot and cold drinks and the premises is licenced for customers to bring alcohol, but not to sell alcohol.

There are very strong reviews online including 4.7/5* on Google from 90 reviewers, 5* reviews on Facebook and 4.5/5* reviews on TripAdvisor from 331 reviewers. The business is being sold with the website

There is scope to develop the business by considering:

  • Applying for a premises licence

  • Open earlier for breakfast trade

  • Open later into the evenings and include theme nights

  • Open 7 days a week

  • Adding extra internal seating

There are many reasons to buy Great Walsingham Barns Café including:

  • A name that is synonymous with the area

  • A true turnkey business

  • Very strong reviews

  • A business that could grow

  • Very low outgoings

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
