The Hamnavoe Restaurant is a highly desirable family run establishment, benefitting from a central location. It is positioned in the heart of Stromness, which is a much sought after residential area & holiday destination which draws in a continuous stream of tourists during the holiday season & boasts high volume of repeat customers.
The sale includes the building structure on a freehold basis plus the business as a going concern. The fixtures & fittings are included in the sale & the bespoke stained glass panels can be included by a separate negotiation. Viewings are recommended to appreciate its full potential.
The Hamnavoe Restaurant is well known locally with a rich history & is a staple within the Stromness community. The restaurant has built a strong reputation & has catered for countless functions, weddings & events. The establishment is known for contributing to local community & events such as the Orkney Folk Festival & running a soup kitchen during the difficult times of the pandemic.
In addition to its loyal local trade, Tourism is a key source of revenue. Stromness & the Isles of Orkney as a whole attracts an abundance of inbound & domestic visitors. Stromness & the surrounding areas draws in a steady flow of tourists that participate in walking / cycling tours, fishing, water sports, diving tours or even more leisurely activities such as visiting one of the numerous historical sites, bird watching, photography or just taking in some of the most striking scenery Scotland has to offer.
The restaurant presently trades on a year-round basis generating a commendable level of turnover & producing a profitable return. However, the Hamnavoe Restaurant is only open for evenings 6 out of 7 days, thus offering the next owners the opportunity to build on the business further. The restaurant could potentially develop a well needed lunch-time / café service, building on the reputation the current owners have already established. Extending opening times & being available 7 days a week during peak trading periods would undoubtedly make this a more profitable business venture.
