New owner sought for historic Edinburgh public house
A PUB in the Edinburgh suburb of Restalrig has come onto the books of Cornerstone Business Agents.
Featuring what Cornerstone describes as a “very interesting” history, the Bunch O’Roses is in a location said to have been occupied by a public house since 1780.
A public house has occupied this site since 1780.
The pub is said to have acquired its name because a bunch of roses was placed in the window to signify that the bosses from the nearby railway yard were in having a drink.
Barry McNeil, director of Cornerstone, who is marketing the Bunch O’Roses with a guide price of £275,000 for the freehold, said the business currently trades from wet sales only but the property has a kitchen, giving new owners scope to introduce a food offer.
“Our client has owned and run the business for the last 14 years and it is very unusual in today’s licensed trade to have an owner with that length of service,” said McNeil.
“Our client has placed the business on the market as he is looking to retire and an excellent opportunity has arisen for a motivated individual to acquire a well performing pub, producing good barrelage, located in the Restalrig/Craigentinny area of Edinburgh.”
