General Information

 

We are delighted to offer for sale this excellent tearoom and kiosk situated in the delightful Cliffe Park in Dronfield. The premises are within the Lodge building within the park, currently laid out to comfortably provide 40 covers, but there is ample space to increase this further to provide 50-60 covers in total.

The business was established by the owner and has operated for many years, initially specialising in outside catering for high quality afternoon teas for events, such as weddings and parties, and latterly has specialised in the operation of the highly successful tearoom.

Vintage Rose Catering operates as The Tearoom in Cliffe Park which has built up an enviable reputation, with excellent reviews on TripAdvisor – a five star rating and currently number 2 for restaurants in the whole of Dronfield, Facebook – well over 1,100 likes and many happy reviews and recommendations and on their own website.

The tearoom has been beautifully furnished as a traditional tearoom to provide a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, with a range of exquisite traditional vintage china for high tea. The kitchen has been well equipped to provide a range of seasonal offerings including breakfasts, lunches and supper clubs with seasonal fresh food cooked to order with our homemade cakes and desserts to follow or to simply enjoy with freshly ground coffee and speciality teas. There is also a kiosk sales area to make the most of the passing clientele that may wish to have something on the go.

The current owner has concentrated on the tea rooms in more recent years as demonstrated by the excellent reviews and reputation, however there is an exceptional opportunity to develop this already successful business further by expanding the outside catering offering such as wedding catering and corporate events. The business currently operates on a daytime basis, but there is also scope to offer an evening opening for evening meals.

A viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the opportunity on offer.

 

Location

 

The tearoom is situated within Cliffe Park, which was fully refurbished in 2018 to provide a fantastic facility for families of all ages with a free car park on site ensuring excellent footfall for the tea room, but is ideally located close to the heart of Dronfield just off Callywhite Lane, where there is an abundance of businesses and commercial occupiers. Dronfield is an affluent and desirable town in North East Derbyshire, close to the Peak District National Park, and equidistant to the city of Sheffield and the town of Chesterfield.
