Property agent Graham + Sibbald said the business had been "passionately operated".

It added: “The Marina is a well-established and popular business, with a strong trading history, run under the direct supervision of the owners, one of whom is a chef to trade. The vendors repositioned The Marina from a full-service restaurant to becoming a takeaway with restaurant area in 2018. Since then, the business has flourished and become a staple for locals.”
