Description

A great opportunity for an owner operator to grow an already successful business within the seaside town of South Queensferry.

Location

Located on the south side of the Firth of Forth, The Boathouse restaurant boasts a prominent location within the town centre of South Queensferry. The business is surrounded by a mixture of bars, restaurants and retail shops. The Forth Rail Bridge attracts excellent levels of tourism all year round due to its unmistakeable structure. The business is a 10 minute drive from Dalmeny train station which has links to Edinburgh and Dundee. South Queensferry is approximately eight miles north west of Edinburgh City Centre

Internal Details

A single door entrance from the High Street will lead you to the reception area of the property, this section provides the potential for a 24 cover café/bar, however it is currently utilised as a waiting area for the main restaurant. This area benefits from having an accessible toilet. Stairs lead lead down to the main restaurant where there are also male and female toilets situated.

The kitchen is located directly in front as you enter the main restaurant area through a single door. The large floor to ceiling windows provide excellent natural light, as well as the impressive views of the Forth Road Bridge, Forth Rail Bridge and the new Queensferry Crossing. The corner bar is on your right as you enter the main dining area

The restaurant can accommodate 60 covers, with a private dining area situated towards the rear of the property accommodating a further 20 covers.

External Details

The front elevation of the property is on street level with the main restaurant and bistro areas downstairs leading out towards the shore, via the outdoor seating area with the main entrance accessed via the High Street. The building is of traditional stone construction under a pitched slate roof. Outside seating is available and can accommodate circa 30.

The Opportunity

Our client has owned the business for over 15 years and is now reluctantly looking to sell due to retirement. The business is very popular within the local community and is exceptionally busy during the summer with tourists visiting the area.

Although the business is currently run as a seafood bistro, there is certainly further scope to change the current concept to a different food offering. The recent refurbishment would compliment many different concepts. The main lobby at ground floor level also has potential to feature a small bar/café that could provide surplus income from any new daytime trade.
