Great Junction Street Restaurant (ref 1622)

Leith, Edinburgh

Business location


  • Price: 35000
  • Tenure: Leasehold
  • Business type: Restaurant

The restaurant is a well-positioned unit, occupying a visible trading location towards the eastern end of Great Junction Street in Leith. This trading location allows for busy footfall from morning unit late. Leith is regarded as a culinary hot spot, distinct from the city as the area close by is home to all three Michelin starred restaurants in Edinburgh.

Leith Links, Ocean Terminal and the Shore area of Edinburgh are all located close by. Leith has a vibrancy and distinct independence from Edinburgh but now Leith enjoys a closer link to the city with the finalisation of the tram link. The route has connected Leith to Edinburgh city centre allowing for a frequent and easy commute between the port and the city.

Our clients opened Aurora in 2017 and quickly established an excellent reputation for fine dining, specialising in high quality European fayre. The restaurant has become very successful and has been Michelin recommended.

Our clients are relocating from Scotland in 2024 and are moving abroad and consequently the business will close in early 2024.

The availability of this space in the heart of one of Edinburgh’s culinary hotspots will surely be of significant interest to highly motivated chefs/operators looking to acquire and run their own restaurant. The site offers a built-in low overhead base in which operators can maximise the trading profitability of the site. The property is rates exempt and given the size, the site benefits from a decent rent level.

The site would certainly suit a similar offering or indeed the space offers great flexibility for wide variety of cuisines and trading styles.

The premises has full class 3 consent as well as premises licence with 7 day a week opening permitted.

The property is available on a leasehold basis. We are offering an assignation of the current lease.
