Business Information

Previously operating as a charming café, this family-owned restaurant launched in May 2023 and sits in the vibrant heart of Sheringham—a beloved seaside destination on the North Norfolk Coast. Renowned for its delicious breakfasts, brunches, lunches, cakes, hot and cold drinks, and traditional Sunday Carvery. The business prides itself on only using the finest ingredients sourced from within a 10-mile radius from trusted suppliers, which makes it popular with the local clientele and tourists alike.

The restaurant is of good size, enhanced by alfresco dining options, translating to robust level of turnover and profit. The interior accommodates 40 guests, while the rear garden offers an additional 40 covers, plus a street-facing area with a further 12 seats available in fair weather.

The business is ripe for a new owner to infuse their own mark and personality into the restaurant and there is the additional benefit of having a newly refurbished and spacious one bedroom flat above.


The restaurant provides a wide range of food and drinks, including full English breakfasts, Vegan breakfasts, many brunch options including omelettes, sausage and bacon sandwiches, toasties, porridge and pancakes, eggs and more. The lunch menu includes jacket potatoes, sandwiches, and a range of sides and plenty of cakes, traybakes and teacakes are also on offer. For drinks there are various hot and cold options available including cream teas and your usual fayre.

Enjoying high footfall, there is constant passing trade with locals, daytrip visitors to the town and holiday makers being regular customers. There is also the facility to hold Private BBQ functions and regular events in Sheringham such as the Viking Festival, Classic Motor Show/Carnival Day, 1940’s Weekend and New Year’s Day Swim can all be very lucrative.


The restaurant itself is well presented throughout and finished to a high standard. Of good size it measures approximately 105m2 with a rateable value of £15,000. Benefiting from air conditioning, the walls are timber clad with black lino wood effect flooring complementing the style and the frontage is fully glazed. The kitchen is of good size and features a stainless steel 10 ring gas hob with Unox oven and full extraction unit.

With 92 possible covers in total, comprising 40 inside the restaurant and 40 outside in the rear garden and a further 12 to the front, there is ample space for customers. A bar and drinks area/service area features a coffee machine, there is a w.c, pot-wash room, storage area to open rear access door.

There is a 15-year (full repairing and insuring) lease in place from May 2023 and rent is currently £22,500 per annum at the time of listing.


One bedroom flat above the restaurant with open-plan living/dining room and kitchen, good sized bedroom and bathroom. Benefiting from double glazing the flat can be independent if the door to the restaurant was blocked off.

A new owner has the option/choice of living in the one-bedroom flat themselves, or it could be rented out to obtain an additional income stream. We believe a monthly rental in the region of £725 per month (£8,700 per annum) should be achievable based on other rented properties in the area.
