The property occupies a ground floor unit within a larger modern development located within Inverkip known as ‘Kip Park’. The property occupies a prominent position off the busy A78 road route, that benefits from approximately 13,700 passing vehicles daily (DFT, 2019). It is located a short distance north of Kip Marina, widely considered to be Scotland’s premier marina having over 600 berths.
The restaurant forms part of the ground floor of a larger modern commercial development, whose other occupiers are Sainsburys, The Kip Chippy, Enchanted Forrest Nursery and ‘Hair at Main Street Inverkip’ Salon.
The restaurant is arranged within an attractive glazed frontage, catering up to 25 covers across movable tables and chairs. It is well presented with timber flooring, plasterboard and painted walls that are timber to dado height, and a unique timber bar servery created by the current operator. The kitchen area itself is impressive, more than sufficient in size, with high-quality stainless-steel catering equipment and extraction canopy.
To the rear of the property are well presented gents and female toilets, with a further disabled WC.
Externally, there are six dedicated car parking spaces, picnic benches which can cater to 29 covers, and a rear external store area.
The business is currently run by an experienced chef / operator. The unit itself benefits from the high flow of passing traffic along the A78; general nearby footfall; boat owners / visitors / employees of Kip Marina; as well as the nearby residents of Inverkip and Inverclyde.
There is an opportunity for an operator to build upon the established reputation for good food, or to slightly change the offering to suit more of a cafe style business.
There is further scope to develop the business, with marketing driven towards Kip Marina itself and other sailors who may visit the Kipper as a destination. Greater signage to highlight the offering to passing traffic could also be utilised to drive the trade.
In the summer months, the external seating for approximately 29 covers is much appreciated by patrons.
