Outstanding Restaurant By The Sea, Buckie

Buckie, Banffshire

Advert ref: 1121SAF

Bijou By The Sea is an exceptionally stylish and modern restaurant premises. It sits in a unique trading location which benefits from picturesque views across the Moray Firth. 

This outstanding opportunity has traded successfully under its current owners since. 2013. It returned after covid with a strong summer season in 2021 and shut due to ambitious redevelopment plans which the owner has decided not to follow through with at this time. Due to change in personal circumstances this has resulted in the property being reluctantly presented to the market.

The property is finished to an extremely high standard throughout and is a true turnkey business opportunity. Destination outlets are currently strong retail / hospitality opportunities and this business fits that description proving popular with locals and tourists alike. 

Sitting right on the North East 250 route the property comprises an open plan restaurant /café with 70 internal covers and around 20 external covers with scope for many more. It also features a charming retail space with glazed frontage and spectacular views directly onto the beach.

It comes with a  well-equipped commercial kitchen, ample ancillary service areas and benefits from modern W.C.s and new flooring all refreshed in the last 4 years. 

Strathlene Caravan Park is directly across the road with Strathlene Golf Club less than 5 minutes walk away, both provide excellent footfall for the restaurant. The business would be an ideal acquisition for an experienced chef/front of house couple who would be able to drive the business to reach its full potential. 

It was a favourite venue for celebrations, milestone birthday parties, anniversaries, baby showers and did especially well with events such as Mother’s Day. At Bijou By The Sea high tea, afternoon teas and take-home boxes also proved perennial favourites.  

Planning Permission and full Building Warrant has been granted to extend the restaurant into a ‘destination outlet’ and full plans and details are available through the selling agent. 

Flexible lease terms available.
