The Distressed Sailor following a complete refurbishment and reopening in
2016 has seen turnover escalate from £0 to £260,000 in less than a year. The
restaurant soon created an excellent reputation that continues to grow and
it is already the sixth best restaurant in Whitehaven on TripAdvisor, where
testimony to the fayre on offer and the service provided can be found. This
venture will ideally suit a couple/small family wishing to work the potential
of the business and live on-site. It would work equally well as a managed
operation using the first floor accommodation for the benefit of the staff.
It is intended that all trade fixtures and fittings, of which there is a full
complement, will be included within the sale enabling the purchaser or lessee
to continue trading without interrupting the business.
The Distressed Sailor has potential for expansion of turnover and profit
through maintaining and building upon the improving reputation.
