A “MUCH-LOVED” restaurant on a popular Scottish tourist route has been put up for sale.

Cornerstone Business Agents is handling the freehold sale of the premises which also has a terraced beer garden.

The agent said the Haven Bar & Restaurant, located in the East Neuk of Fife, occupies a “highly prominent” trading location next to the harbour.

It said: “The business has been in our clients’ hands for the last 21 years, during which time our clients have developed a much-loved bar and restaurant offering welcoming hospitality as well as capitalising on the plentiful seafood larder the East Neuk is famous for.

“Our clients now feel the time is right to hand over the reins to a younger and equally enthusiastic team to harness the obvious potential of the business.”

It added: “The ground floor remains an obvious avenue for new owners to make an immediate impression.

“This area is currently underutilised by the current owner and it is thought the conversion of this part of the business to a coffee shop or ice cream parlour would work well on a compatible basis with the first floor operation.

The National:

“The village of Cellardyke occupies a prominent harbourside location in the picturesque East Neuk of Fife.

“Lying immediately to the east of the town of Anstruther, the village is an attractive warren of narrow streets opening up to a historic 16th century harbour.”

The agent also added that St Andrews lies nine miles to the north east, while Dundee can also be accessed “within a comfortable 30-minute drive”.

“This area also boasts many holiday homes and cottages as well as caravan parks that swell the population, especially during the spring, summer and autumn months,” it said.

Cornerstone Business Agents said the freehold is available at a guide price of £420,000.
