A wonderfully located freehold chip shop with a quaint dining area and owner’s apartment above. This successfully owner operated business operates with part time assistance and has done so for many years. The chip shop is located within the bustling market town of Tiverton with a high residential population, increasing during the summer months with tourism. The trade could easily incorporate a wider menu choice and offer a delivery option, maybe via Deliveroo, Just Eat etc. This easily operated business will be handed over with full training to ensure a successful continuation and early viewings are highly recommended....


Tiverton is in the heart of Devon, approx. 14 miles North East of the county’s city Exeter.  Nearby towns include Cullompton, which is 9 miles away and Crediton which is 15 miles.  Tiverton is accessed via the junction of the North Devon link road A393.  The link road also connects Tiverton to the M5 motorway at junction 27, and to the north to Barnstaple.  The A393 links Exeter and Minehead.  Tiverton also has the benefit of a railway link at Tiverton Parkway, approx. 4 miles outside of town which links to the main national railway network.  The town lies on two beautiful rivers, The River Exe and The River Lowman, which join south of the town centre.  The town also has a canal and several important landmarks such as Cranmore Castle and has a well-known history in the traditional cloth and lace industry.


The business has been long established in the town centre as a well-respected chip shop take-away and benefits of an attractive sunny south facing frontage and quaint business dining area to the rear. The business is successfully owner operated with part time staff, when required. With a three-pan range which is up to date together with a high-level extraction system, plenty of space to the rear with wet room, stores which are both inside and outside, together a prep room and convenient free parking to the front. We the agents believe the above creates a great opportunity to expand the already impressive turnover and actual trading accounts will be made available following a formal successful viewing.
