Chance to bank on Fife business

Restaurant and bar includes owner’s accommodation


A NEW owner is being sought for a village bar and restaurant in Fife for the first time in a decade.

Located in Bonnybank near Kennoway, the Bonnybank Inn comprises a 60-cover restaurant and bar, and currently operates with a Mexican theme.

Described as “very effective and profitable”, the business is being marketed by Cornerstone on behalf of established operators Paul and Sue Pinkney, who have owned it for the past ten years.

Custom is driven from a variety of sources including locals, regulars and tourists.

The bar and restaurant areas have been refurbished by the Pinkneys in the style of a Mexican cantina and are said to feature “traditional bar and restaurant furniture against an eclectic and individual design”.

Described as having a “warm and inviting feel”, the bar is said to be predominantly used as a pre and post-dinner drinks space but doubles up as a less formal dining area.

Located above the bar and restaurant, owner’s accommodation has a separate entrance and comprises four double bedrooms, a kitchen and an open-plan lounge and dining room with views across to Edinburgh and East Lothian.

Cornerstone said the Bonnybank Inn is in “first class, turn-key, walk-in condition” and offers scope to increase trade from six days a week to seven.

“The Bonnybank Inn is a very special business indeed,” said the selling agent.

“Our clients are rightly very proud of the hugely impressive business they have managed to build with their experienced staff team.”

The business and property are on the market with a guide price of £460,000.
