The Tea Garden Lewes


Advert ref: 1072SPT

Business Partnership is pleased to have been appointed as sole selling agent in order to seek a purchaser for this very well positioned business, which has only been made available for sale due to our client wishing to pursue other business interests.

The Tea Garden in Lewes has been under the careful and meticulous ownership of our client since they created the business from scratch as a lockdown project during 2020/21.

The business has been introduced to the market for sale as our client wishes to fully concentrate on their usual work commitments in 2023. It must be noted that current turnover is generated on limited trading days. A new owner has plenty of scope to increase trading options by extending opening days/times, embarking on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the produce offered and developing all of the facilities within the premises.

The premises provides 30 covers in total over several areas including a newly installed seated café and takeaway area at the front, a stunning vintage tea room (and WC) in the back and pretty courtyard garden at the rear.

The tearoom serves a range of speciality teas and coffees and has gained a strong reputation for providing traditional afternoon and cream teas. The business has successfully hosted many private celebrations including baby showers, birthdays, wedding parties, anniversaries and Mother’s Day events. There is scope to significantly increase this side of the business.

Viewings are highly recommended by appointment only, please contact us for further details.
