New dawn for popular Cornwall seaside cafe & bar

A husband and wife team have returned to the hospitality industry as the new owners of the ever-popular Sunset Surf Cafe & Bar, having been assisted by Gary Boyce at Christie Finance.

Graham and Annabelle, both experienced business operators since moving to Cornwall in 1997, were looking for a new business opportunity having sold Port Gaverne Hotel in St Isaacs in 2015.

Sunset Surf is located in the picturesque seaside location at Gwithian Townes in Hayle, overlooking one of the prime surfing beaches in Cornwall. The business is popular all year round with locals, surfers and walkers, as alongside the cafe & bar the business also offers a surf school and retail shop. The previous owners, who had run the business since 2005, were looking to sell in order to focus on opportunities closer to home.

For sale through Christie & Co, Associate Director, Gary assisted Graham & Annabelle through the whole financing process, presenting the business in the most beneficial way to generate high interest and overcome any hesitation from lenders.

Commenting on the deal, Gary said, “It was a great pleasure to help Graham & Annabelle obtain the funding to secure the freehold of this lovely business. The deal had its challenges but with our guidance, and the close relationships we have with all our clients, we were able to overcome these quickly and get them the best funding package to start their ownership off on the right footing.”
