OPERATORS keen on a move into one of the capital’s busiest thoroughfares may be interested in the 1780 Restaurant & Bar on Rose Street.

The venue can accommodate over 65 covers through a main room and dining room, whilst an additional 40 covers can be catered for in an outdoor area on the north side of the street.

The business is described as benefiting from high footfall throughout the year, particularly during the Edinburgh Festival and international rugby games; average weekly turnover is currently around £8800.

The Restaurant Agency, which is marketing the property, is seeking offers over £50,000 for the leasehold of the outlet with a passing rent of £40,000 per annum.
