The town of Greenlaw is located on the A697 in the heart of the Borders, near equidistant between Lauder and Coldstream. Coldstream marks the border between Scotland and England and lies 10 miles to the South. Edinburgh is 38 miles to the north and can be accessed within an hour.
The Borders enjoys a rail link to Edinburgh with the train terminus at Tweedbank, 17 miles west as well as a connection to the East Coast Main Line at nearby Reston, 17 mile east. Other centres located close by include Berwick upon Tweed (20 miles) and Galashiels (21 miles).
The town is home to circa 800 residents but this swells in the summer months with tourists and visitors. The town has a well-regarded caravan and holiday park with the stunning scenery of the Lammermuir hills all around. Greenlaw also boasts a village shop, butchers, pharmacy and primary school.
The Blackadder Bar and Restaurant is the only licensed establishment in Greenlaw, occupying a prime roadside trading position on the main road leading through the town. Historically, the business has been a very popular village business and remains trading strongly from food and wet sales.
The business has been in our clients hands since 2016 and underwent a significant refurbishment on ground and partial first floor before opening to trade in April 2017. Initially the business was run under management and traded impressively reporting a gross turnover circa £250,000 prior to Covid. In the recent past, our clients have let out the business on an informal lease on an initial passing rent of £15,000 per annum. The rent is due to rise to £18,000 per annum in due course.
The property is being offered on a freehold basis and vacant possession may be granted for purchasers wishing to run on a hands on basis.
Freehold Guide price £235,000.
