This area of Fife is also renowned for its high-quality golf courses in the nearby vicinity.

The business has been under our client’s ownership since 2019, during which time the business has been completely repositioned and energised. Prospective purchasers will find a vibrant public house business geared towards great customer service and offering the best for locals and visitor alike.

The public bar is cosy and welcoming hosting a variety of different events on a regular basis. From quizzes, live music (traditional and contemporary) to Karaoke as well as a tempting lunch and evening menu. Our clients have professionalised the offering to allow new owners to follow a successful template.

The conversion and inception of the Bunker Café has added an extra dimension to the business as well as offering a different service to the locals. The café/coffee shop offering has developed a new line of income and is proving very popular with both sit in and takeaway custom. This is a huge positive for the business going forward. The Bunker café doubles up as a farm shop, coffee shop, takeaway and community meeting place.

Our clients have also worked hard to create an excellent function offering within the business. Our clients have invested in a stage area, lighting and a sound system to offer a flexible and event ready room for weddings, celebrations, music nights, comedy evenings, parties, as well as high teas.

The owner occupies a fantastic fully renovated flat above the business. The owner’s accommodation has been developed to the highest standard offering a spacious and luxurious family home. The accommodation offers two very comfortable double sized bedrooms, office/third small bedroom, fully renovated bathroom as well as an outstanding kitchen dining and living space. Private access to the flat is at the side of the property with a set of stairs leading to the accommodation. It is very rare to find this standard of owner’s accommodation to accompany a business.
