Tobermory’s Galleon Grill restaurant has been put on the market with a price tag of offers over £185,000.
DM Hall has brought to market an excellent opportunity for a chef/operator to acquire the highly successful Galleon Grill restaurant.
Situated in Post Office Brae in the centre of Tobermory, the licensed restaurant, which owns a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence, has significant growth potential, according to DM Hall. A self-contained one-bedroom terraced flat can be made available also to the new owners of the Galleon Grill, by separate negotiation.
The Galleon Grill, which can accommodate 34 covers, is a favourite with locals and tourists but trades only from March until the end of October.
Mull’s stunning coastlines, outstanding natural beauty and rich Scottish heritage attracts visitors who participate in wildlife spotting and other outdoor pursuits as well as visiting the whisky and gin distilleries.
The island has a population of around 3,000 and accommodates a significant influx or visitors, especially in the summer. With the steady rise in winter visitors to Mull in general and Tobermory in particular, however, the opportunities for year-round trading are apparent.
Kerry Boyle of DM Hall said: ‘The Galleon Grill provides prospective purchasers with a true opportunity, as the business has already built up a great reputation with locals and tourists. In addition, there is a recognised demand for longer opening hours.
‘We envisage the Galleon Grill would ideally suit a hands-on owner chef/operator or partnership team who could continue to develop trade while introducing their own flair and energy to increase profitability.
‘Offers over £185,000 are invited for our client’s interest in the heritable interest, the Scottish equivalent of freehold, in the property, including fixtures, fittings and goodwill. For further information, please do not hesitate to contact me, Kerry.Boyle@dmhall.co.uk on 0131 624 6139.’
