Wellswood is one of the most desirable villages in the South Devon area and has long been recognised as the centre of cosmopolitan life in Torquay. Wellies is located in the stylish parade of Victorian properties housing all the amenities to serve this affluent community including a deli, pub, post office, supermarket and a number of independent retailers. The property is only a 10 minute walk from Ansteys Cove and Meadfoot Beach or 15 minutes to the Harbourside and town.
All three coastal resorts of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham form the borough of Torbay, with Torquay facing south over the bay and recognised as its principal town. Torquay has prospered and developed into an international holiday resort and is currently enjoying a renaissance with the town attracting significant outside investment in recent years. It offers a great selection of recreational and sporting facilities being particularly noted for its warm climate, safe bathing and picturesque harbour and marina. Torquay is well served with direct rail links to the major cities, a motorway network accessed by the new link road and nearby airport at the cathedral city of Exeter.
Wellies is a very popular and successful Café/Bar/Bistro with a fabulous interior designed trading space creating a warm and welcoming place to socialise. Wellies enjoys a first class position in the village of Wellswood and has become established as one of the premier places in Torquay to meet and dine. The business has a vibrant bar and café culture with a regular and loyal following. The business is run as a 'chameleon' style operation serving a carefully selected menu ranging from breakfasts and coffees, lunchtime light bites to a full evening dinner and tapas menu. All produce is locally sourced and cooked fresh to order. The business operates from 9:30am - 5pm on Tuesdays, 9:30am - 11pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and Saturdays from 8:30am - 11pm. Wellies is closed on Sundays and Mondays although undoubtedly there is huge potential for a new operator to extend the current trading hours. The business has a continually revolving entertainment and events programme with Live Music on selected Thursdays during the month, Steak Night on Wednesday evenings and several other themed evenings including fish nights, wine tastings and 'Fizzy Fridays'. Wellies is also popular as a venue for special occasions and functions and is often a preferred destination for parties, anniversary celebrations and the occasional wedding. These events either take over small areas of the restaurant or the whole trading floor.
