Description The Chippy is a well established traditional fish and chip shop and separate closed café located in the popular seaside town of Southsea, which is approx. 8 miles south of Portsmouth on the Hampshire coast.
The business is situated close to the main high street which has a mix of independent and national retailers and is approx. 0.2 miles from Southsea Pier on the sea front. Portsmouth and Southsea mainline train station is within easy reach. A direct train links London Waterloo making the destination popular with tourists to the area during the summer.
The business has been run under the current ownership since 2001 although it has been in the same family since the mid 1990’s. During this time it has built up an excellent reputation for providing high quality food for both the take away service and those choosing to eat in. Whilst two separate businesses, the fish and chip shop is adjacent to the café and operates with an open plan system allowing customers to eat in the café side having purchased food from the chip shop.
We have been advised that the café is no longer trading and the income is currently generated from fish and chip sales and the take away aspect of the business although it does benefit from a 49 cover café restaurant which is in good order with traditional tables and chairs which offer flexible seating arrangement.
