Famed Edinburgh steakhouse McKirdy’s is up for sale

Edinburgh city centre steakhouse McKirdy’s has been put on the market for offers over £450,000.

As selling agents DM Hall put it, the Morrison Street restaurant’s ‘success is reflected in its profitability’. The business has a longstanding reputation for high quality meat, built upon its supply relationship with McKirdy Butchers, a local firm established in 1895.

The Steakhouse itself has traded for 24 years, situated close to Haymarket, on a busy one-way thoroughfare which carries a substantial volume of traffic, with the Edinburgh International Conference Centre and various hotels located only a short walk away.

Recently re-furbished, the business, which currently opens Wednesday to Sunday, is being brought to the market as its current owner retires, in what Hall’s described as “a great opportunity to acquire a successful, busy and readily managed restaurant with an established reputation”.

Margaret Mitchell of DM Hall said: “Its location, on the edge of the soon-to-be-completed Haymarket Edinburgh development, an impressive £350m mixed-use development which will include hotels, retail space and offices, will bring further investment and buzz to the area. As a result, any future owner will benefit significantly.

“Our client is seeking offers over £450,000 including goodwill, fixtures and fittings. Trading accounts are available upon request to seriously interested parties. Viewing is strictly by appointment and arrangements can be made by contacting me, Margaret Mitchell MRICS, Surveyor, on 07919574184 or Margaret.mitchell@dmhall.co.uk.”
