This is a successful traditional sit in “plated” fish and chip restaurant, also offering takeaway. Which has found the trading focus since the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic has swung in favour of the takeaway trade.

Food is fried by Perry, the owner, supported by 3 part time waitress staff

The restaurant is located just off the vibrant end of Lowestoft High Street, within walking distance of the railway station, seafront and fish docks. It is located in an area of fully occupied independent shops, but also including McDonalds, Weatherspoon’s and HSBC Bank in close proximity.

Parking is available in the immediate area, although the property has private parking space at the rear for the owner.

Fish is cooked to order and it enjoys a reputation for quality meals, as indicated via Trip Advisor ranking/Certificate of Excellence. Also has 5 star hygiene rating from Waveney District Council

The restaurant enjoys a regular clientele, of well-behaved mature adults/families, plus seasonal tourist visitors.


Perry has owned the business for the last 14 years, although had a break for 4 years when it was let out.

Perry has been back running since May 2016 & quickly restored it’s former reputation, as evidenced by an increasing trade. Turnover is currently controlled within VAT threshold, to suit Perry’s lifestyle needs as he is ready for retirement.

Current turnover is approx. £1,500/£1,600 per week, although it’s clear from our “out of hours” visits there’s tremendous potential to increase via longer opening hours, hence a visit to the restaurant and surrounding area would be recommended so interested parties can appreciate the opportunity.

(Trading Accounts are available to verified interested parties)
