The Railway Inn in Friockheim has been brought to the market by specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co.

Built in around 1889, the traditional stone building includes a public bar with a timber framed counter and fireplace, alongside a games area which contains a pool table and darts lane. It also has a commercial kitchen with the potential to offer food.

Above the pub, there is also a three bedroom owner’s apartment which includes a lounge, kitchen and bathroom.

Sam Wilson, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale said: “The Railway Inn presents a good opportunity for a new operator to take on a well established business benefitting from a central location within a popular village in the East of Scotland.

“The business does not currently offer food and therefore it has the potential to add light food sales to supplement income. It is also operated on a free of tie basis so beer, spirits and wine suppliers are free to negotiate.

“This well-run, established business would suit either a first-time buyer or an experienced operator wanting to relocate to a rural Scottish village. The construction of a large housing estate directly opposite the inn, which is already well underway, will see the business benefit massively due to a lack of public houses or bars in the Friockheim area.”

Christie & Co is seeking offers in excess of £190,000 for the freehold interest.
