Award-winning fish & chip shop in North Devon for sale

South Sixteen, a well established fish and chip restaurant and takeaway in Braunton, a small coastal town in North Devon, most famous for its surfing community, has come to market via Christie & Co, with an asking price of £199,950 for the leasehold.

Situated in the heart of the village on South Street, South Sixteen comprises a takeaway counter, 45 cover trading area and a garden.

Established 50 years ago and winner of the 2014 ‘Best Food to Go’ North Devon Food Award, the popular restaurant maintains a strong reputation, catering to the local community and tourists visiting the stunning local beaches of Saunton Sands, Croyde and Puttsborough.

South Sixteen presents an excellent opportunity to develop the business that has been built by the current owners, Justin and Sally Davies, over the past eight years, with the potential for a new owner to drive the business further by increasing trading hours or providing catering services.

Mr & Mrs Davies commented, “South Sixteen is an established and popular business in the village with an excellent reputation for first class quality and very friendly service, attracting regular customers from the village and wider North Devon community. Having forged links with a number of clubs and community events, this has enhanced our exposure, regularly drawing in new customers.

“The business is an excellent and most profitable opportunity for someone seeking a lifestyle business which can be grown, if desired, by extending opening hours and extending the current offering, whilst living in one of the UK’s ‘go to’ destinations.”

Kai Salam, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, said, “South Sixteen is ideally located five minutes from some of the best beaches in the UK and presents a superb opportunity for anyone looking to work for themselves in a great location.

“This would be a great business for either a local partnership or an operator from further afield looking to enter the catering industry. Above the restaurant, a two bedroom flat provides owner’s accommodation if a buyer was looking to relocate to this stunning part of the country.”
