The premises will be a shop so you need to conduct a fire risk assessment as required by The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, and guidance will be Offices and shops guide.

22m means you should really have a back door! It's too far for a single exit under current guidance - however the draft of new guidance for small premises looks like it will increase the maximum distance to 25m so I wouldn't worry too much.

A single exit is still a maximum of 60. Your floor area matters too - for every 1 sq.m. of dining area you can have 1 person, for every 0.7 sq.m. of queuing space you can have 1 person - in a small premises this may limit you to less than the 60 your exit allows.
