Rhymers Tower Cafe and Bistro occupies a prominent and highly visible roadside trading location on the A68 in the Borders town of Earlston. The business is a very popular Borders institution occupying a favourite stopover point on the A68 which connects Edinburgh through the Scottish Borders to Northumberland, Newcastle and beyond.

Occupying a roadside position at the southern tip of Earlston, the business continues to be a popular stop off point for commuters, locals, tourists as well as general custom throughout the year.

The restaurant and coffee shop are laid out over ground floor and basement/garden level. The owners house adjoins the property and can be accessed separately by a front door at the side of the property (accessed from the main car park) or internally through the business via a secure door.

The name of the business is derived from Rhymers Tower, an historical ruin of a former keep dating from the thirteenth century which is situated in the back garden of the business.

In its present form Rhymers Tower Café and Bistro offers an immaculately presented and highly profitable business, ideal for a partnership team as well as offering a comfortable family home next door.

The business offers an all encompassing and recently restructured menu full of local favourites trading through breakfast, lunchtime and evening meals. At present our clients trade the business to suit their own needs. Prospective new owners may wish to extend opening times on Mondays and throughout the summer season. The business is well known far and wide and is somewhat of a Borders institution which is well loved and well patronised by many.

The business has full class 3 cooking consent.
