Exceptional Café business located alongside Melrose Abbey. Very strong turnover and profits. 84 internal, 60 external covers. Substantial Freehold property including 2 bed owners flat. High quality fit out. Quality fixtures and fittings throughout. Trading only 5 days, scope to develop current offering.

The attractive town of Melrose is arguably considered to be the “Jewel of the Crown” of the Borders towns, it lies in the shadows of the Eildons on the banks of the River Tweed, is famed for its medieval Abbey and is a hugely popular destination for walkers and cyclists.

Our clients took on this business in 2016 and totally transformed the property and the offering resulting in how The Greenhouse looks today. There was no expense spared in the internal fit out which can be seen when walking through the business. The eye catching atrium section was added resulting in the extended seating capacity. There is an option to sit in or takeaway breakfast and lunches.

An alcohol license has recently been approved for the premises, this opens up the opportunity to adapt the offering to be more of a restaurant or offer a bistro style menu in the evening.

The Greenhouse Café and the owners accommodation are in genuine walk-in condition throughout.
