Aberdeen’s Ye Olde Frigate Bar goes on sale for first time in 30 years

Ye Olde Frigate Bar, on Aberdeen’s Netherkirkgate – widely considered to be the city’s oldest street – is now on the market through Christie & Co, as its owner of 30 years, Steven Esson, plans to retire.

Just a stone’s throw away from the bustling Aberdeen Harbour and popular with tourists and locals alike, the Olde Frigate is a celebrated establishment with a rich history dating back centuries.

Occupying an iconic period property, the pub features a main bar area and function room, each of which can cater for up to 50 customers, as well as a lounge which can cater for weddings and events.

The second floor features an additional room, previously used for functions, which could be re-converted subject to relevant planning permissions. A further 20 customers can be accommodated to the front of the pub, where there is outdoor seating.

Simon Watson, business agent at Christie & Co, is handling the sale, and said: “I am delighted to be given the opportunity to sell Ye Olde Frigate Bar, which represents an exceptional opportunity to own a piece of Aberdeen’s rich history in such a prime location.”

The Ye Olde Frigate Bar is on the market at Freehold asking price of £265,000
