‘Individual’ venue new to market

Bistro in Auchterarder offers ‘turn-key’ opportunity

Max and Ben’s Bistro

A restaurant in Perthshire which is said to be in walk-in condition has come on to the books of DM Hall.

Max and Ben’s Bistro occupies the ground floor of a two-storey converted Georgian townhouse in the middle of Auchterarder’s High Street, which at 1.5 miles long is said to be the longest high street in Scotland, giving the town its epithet of ‘Lang Toon’.

Surrounded by other independent businesses, Max and Ben’s Bistro is also located near The Gleneagles Hotel.

Upgraded by its current owners in 2015, the 38-cover venue comprises a bar, restaurant and commercial kitchen.

Additionally, a renovated one-bedroom apartment located above the bistro could be made available under separate negotiation if required.

Max and Ben’s Bistro provides operators with a genuine turn-key opportunity.

Kerry Boyle of DM Hall’s business sales team, who is overseeing the marketing of the business, said: “Our client purchased the property as the former Old Tudor Bistro in 2015 and since then it has undergone an extensive refurbishment, resulting in this very individual and stylish establishment.

“Max and Ben’s Bistro provides prospective buyers with a genuine turn-key opportunity. A new operator, perhaps an ambitious chef operator, would have the solid foundation to take this business to the next level as it is already very successful due to the efforts put in by its strong team.”

Offers over £70,000 are sought for the leasehold, with a rental of £30,000 per annum.
