A wonderful opportunity has arisen to purchase the freehold of a fully equipped Tandoori Restaurant in Elgin, Moray. The business occupies a prime location on the town’s High Street whilst the interior benefits from a vibrant décor creating a pleasant and relaxing ambiance. The restaurant is not being sold as a going concern.
The subjects comprise the first floor of a three storey end of terrace building and includes a further four room unoccupied accommodation on the second floor. Entry to the building is gained at ground floor level by the main front door on High Street or at the rear of the property via the fire exit. Internally there is a stair and passageway serving the upper floors and a foyer at first floor level leading to the restaurant.
Tastefully decorated, this restaurant is exceptionally well maintained and presented throughout. Entering the restaurant through double doors from the foyer, visitors are presented with a seated waiting area and a raised 14 cover lounge with wall fixed soft seating, free standing tables and chairs and a service bar with large windows overlooking the High Street. Flowing to the right is the extensive main restaurant with service bar, buffet station and a mix of free standing tables and chairs, and booth style dining tables creating a total of 130 cover.
All dining facilities are well maintained and modern in keeping with the vibrant colour scheme and décor found throughout the property. An exceptionally well equipped and maintained commercial kitchen exists at the rear of the restaurant with a variety of commercial cooking appliances and additional storage areas providing huge potential and capacity for increased production. Separate ladies and gents WC’s and a cloakroom are accessed from the main restaurant area.
The sale of the property also includes an unoccupied four room property arranged over the second floor which is accessed via stairs from the first floor and provides views over the front and rear of the property. Any proposed change of use for the second floor together with relevant applications for consents and/or authority from the Local Authority where applicable are the responsibility of the applicant.
The subjects are situated at the western end of High Street, in the centre of Elgin. The surrounding area contains mainly ground floor retail usage with residential or commercial usage on the upper floors. The ground floor of the building is occupied by Scribbles Pizza House on the eastmost part and Edinburgh Woollen Mill on the westmost part. A range of high street shops, small retailers, cafes, restaurants and leisure facilities are on offer in the vicinity. Much has been done in recent years to regenerate the town while the High Street retains many of its original buildings and cobbled streets. The property is also located within a Conservation Area.
The building is constructed from traditional sandstone and slate and forms part of an attractive end-terrace property that includes a restaurant and retail unit. Large windows maintain a bright environment full of natural light. On street parking is available outside the building with numerous public parking areas located in the vicinity.
