Teignmouth is a well-known and popular seaside resort, situated on the North bank of the estuary of the River Teign in South Devon. Teignmouth has a thriving local community which swells considerably during the summer months. The town is well connected via Shaldon Bridge to Shaldon and on to Torbay and to the North is the County town of Exeter which is approximately a 20 minute drive. Exeter is linked by an airport, train station and M5 to the rest of the country. Fresco is located on Northumberland Place, a central location with easy access from both the seafront and Back Beach areas.
Fresco Restaurant has been established for approximately 12 years and during this time has become an extremely popular year round restaurant. Housed within a charming and well-kept listed building, the ground floor restaurant with beautiful bowed sash window frontage has been sympathetically refurbished, enhancing the original features and incorporating the modern.
To suit their lifestyle, the current owners have over recent years been able to reduce their trading hours with Fresco currently only trading 4 evenings, for 43 weeks a year. There is scope for new operators to decide how to push this and grow the business or continue to enjoy the current balance.
Currently run as an Italian restaurant, the set-up is flexible to allow a new proprietor to adapt the trading style and offering to suit.
