Edinburgh, Edinburgh

Business location


  • Price: 10000
  • Tenure: Leasehold
  • Business type: Public house

These premises are located on Melville Place in the heart of Edinburgh’s West End.  The subjects occupy the basement of a traditional Edinburgh Victorian tenement property with access by stairs from street level.

Upon entry, patrons are led into an open plan bar area comfortably catering for 80+.  There are many nooks and crannies within the property that give it a very unusual and interesting layout.   The bar is to the centre of the premises with access to the galley kitchen behind.   Ladies & gents toilets area on a sub-basement level. The property also comes complete with a beer cellar.

The availability of this bar and restaurant premises on Melville Place provides an excellent opportunity for a motivated publican bar owner to acquire a high profile bar and restaurant located in the heart of Edinburgh’s West End.   Historically, the premises have traded strongly as Scruffy Murphy’s and we envisage under the right hands-on ownership this level of business will return.

The subjects are available on a new lease basis.  The rental is £36,000 per annum.  The unit is available free of alcoholic tie.   A new lease length is negotiable with the landlords.   The landlord is prepared to offer a long lease term on standard commercial full repairing and insuring basis.
