New Owners Make The Perfect Blend For Tivertons Traditional Tea Rooms

New Owners Make The Perfect Blend For Tiverton’s Traditional Tea Rooms

Posted: Thursday 30 May 2019

With Devon attracting thousands of holidaymakers to its coasts and countryside every year, the historic Mid-Devon town of Tiverton provides a step back in time visitors crave. As one of its most popular businesses, the charming Mallards Tea Room now has new ownership as its freehold sells off an asking price of £260,000.

A loyal following and brisk trade
As a much-loved business with a loyal following, Mallards Tea Room enjoys brisk, year-round trade and plenty of repeat custom. And thanks to its prominent position, it takes full advantage of high footfall from shoppers, locals, and visitors alike. Owned and run by a husband and wife team for the last 12 years, the sale gives them the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing retirement.

Now, new owner Mr Timperley is hoping its success and popularity will continue as he starts putting his plans for the tearoom and restaurant into place.

Character and period features
As a two-storey mid-terrace period property, the premises still has many original features that give the business its unique look and feel. Full of character, the open plan restaurant featuring period wooden tables, chairs and old English charm, seats over 40 customers. There’s even further seating outside for up to 10 customers to relax and take in the hustle and bustle of this unique town.

Together with a fully equipped commercial kitchen to the rear of the premises, including rear storage with fridge/freezers and spacious owners accommodation above, this is an ideal - and ready-made - lifestyle business.

A new lease of life
With the freehold sale now complete, Mr Timperley intends to give this small, but perfectly formed - and thriving - business a new lease of life and put his own stamp on it. And with so much going for it already, the new plans will build on Mallard’s robust trading figures and profits, continuing the tea room’s success.
