Business Description

High profile bar & restaurant. Superb trading location in characterful cobbled street. Fully refurbished and renovated by our clients approximately 3 years ago. 100+ capacity. Enormous trading potential. Residue of a 15 year lease which commenced in 2013 with an annual rent of £55,000 per annum. Free of tie on wines, spirits and soft drinks. Ideal husband & wife/partnership team operation.

The Melville is one of Edinburgh’s best known and best loved pubs occupying a sizeable trading pitch on William Street in the heart of Edinburgh’s desirable West End.

The property occupies the ground floor and basement of a terraced tenement style property. Public accommodation is on ground floor whilst toilets as well as services are located on the basement level.

The business has been in our clients’ hands for 3 years during which time they have fully renovated the property including the installation of a commercial kitchen as well as preparation kitchen in addition to the full refurbishment and styling of the bar.
