The Shower of Herring Restaurant is situated in Melfort Village Holiday Resort near Kilmelford in Argyll on the shore of the stunning Loch Melfort. Kilmelford is a popular haven for the yachting community visiting the islands of the Inner Hebrides and Mull and Iona.  

Melfort Village is a holiday resort and is home to 32 self-catering cottages. The resort features leisure facilities such as a swimming pool and tennis courts for guests staying in the area.

Our clients are seeking a new tenant to take over the Shower of Herring restaurant – the only restaurant in the village.  There are also a further 18-20 self-catering cottages along the road near the village, providing a greater volume of potential customers.

The business is currently only trading 5 days a week meaning that there is great scope for development to trade 7 days a week as the Shower of Herring is the only restaurant in Melfort Village.

The restaurant currently only offers a basic menu, a new owner could refresh the menu offering to attract customers from Melfort Village and surrounding areas. This business opportunity would be ideal for an enthusiastic operator or a partnership team. The restaurant is available with vacant possession.

Owners accommodation in a mobile home on site is available should a new owner require it. Complimentary usage of the leisure facilities at Melfort village will be made available for the new tenant.
