Property Brochure PDF Location Map



Located in the town centre of Callington, South East Cornwall is this impressive Fish & Chip Shop/Restaurant. Situated within a highly visible location on the main High Street. This lies on the intersection of the South – North A388 Saltash to Launceston road and the East-West A390 Tavistock to Liskeard road. This expanding town has, in recent times seen numerous residential developments with more planned for the future.

The Business

An opportunity to purchase an established business comprising of a Fish & Chip Takeaway/Restaurant with a spacious Maisonette and adjoining Townhouse.

The business was established some 80 years ago and has been in the hands of the current owner since 2008, and it is reluctantly being offered for sale due to retirement. Since acquiring the business, the owners have refurbished both the shop and living accommodation and more recently invested in new equipment, fixtures and fittings which are all included within the sale price, a huge plus for any new purchaser.

Callington Fish Bar is owner operated with four part time members of staff and has an annual turnover of £150,000, with a further income of £20,000 coming from the rental of the three bedroom flat and the two bedroom town house. The business is renowned for its high quality food and serves a range of traditional fish and chips, sausages, pies, burgers, condiments and cold drinks. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade should you wish by implementing an advertising and marketing campaign along with a social media presence which presently is not in place.

The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with many visiting tourists. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business with much growth potential, and as such early viewing is highly recommended.
