Mor-T-Eat fish and chip shop in Mortehoe is now up for sale, having undergone a drastic refurbishment after a fire damaged the property last year.

Current owner Sue Grice has now made the decision to sell the shop after eight and a half years in Mortehoe. She said: "I've really enjoyed working here over the years; Mortehoe is an absolutely beautiful place to work and live.

"We've had regular visitors and been part of a great community; everyone came together especially when we had the fire last year.

"It was frightening and it's been a lot of work, but the builders have been fabulous, they have done a great job."

The community held a charity event for Sue and her family after the fire, which was held at the local pub the Smugglers Rest.

"Our neighbours and the community have been amazing," said Sue. "They organised a charity event and local musician Peter Bruntnell and his band played too.

"We only just moved back in two weeks ago, as the refurbishment work started in October. But I'm hoping to move up to Shropshire now to be closer to my daughter.

"It would be great if someone local wanted to buy the place, but to be honest it would be great for everyone. It is a great lifestyle and I've had so much fun working here."

The Mor-T-Eat shop now includes a brand new Gas Frying Range, all new freezers and fridges, a new venting system and the shop has been totally refurbished.

The premises are available to purchase through Webbers estate agents. Tony Foster, associate director at Webbers said: "It is rare to have the opportunity to buy a fish and chip shop with a completely new shop, frying range and fittings. This really is a blank canvas for an inspiring entrepreneur to potentially make a lot of money."
