Eatery changes hands after 30 years under same ownership
A PERTHSHIRE restaurant business has changed hands for the first time in 30 years.
The Golden Larches Restaurant in Lochearnhead, said to enjoy an “excellent” reputation among locals and tourists, was put on the market to allow the previous owner to retire.
The restaurant is set in one acre of grounds in a prominent roadside location and is decorated in a traditional ‘tea room’ style, with space for 50 covers.
The business has been run on a seasonal basis and offers scope for expansion.
The business has been run on a seasonal basis from Easter to October, between the hours of 10am and 7pm, serving a range of snacks and main dishes featuring locally-sourced meat, fish and game.
Bruce & Co’s Kaira Massie said although the restaurant has been successful in this format, there is scope for the new owners to increase turnover by trading throughout the year and opening later as the premises is licensed until 11pm.
“The sale of the Golden Larches Restaurant offers a wonderful opportunity for the new owners to continue with a successful business while there is scope to increase trade if required,” she said.
“Additionally the excellent owners’ accommodation in this scenic area must be seen to be truly appreciated.
The restaurant is set in one acre in a prominent roadside location.
“Bruce & Co would like to congratulate both our clients and the purchasers on this sale, and we wish them every success in their future endeavours.”
