Businesses for sale


A popular and profitable bistro located just off of the famous Royal Mile and in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town has been brought to the market by specialist property adviser Christie + Co.

Stac Polly is a restaurant with 45 covers, well-known for serving superb Scottish cuisine, Scottish beers from the Orkney Brewery and a selection of malt whiskies.  

The restaurant has a homely and relaxed style and is split into two dining areas, one of which is ideal to be used for private functions and parties.  The basement level of the building contains the cellar and an owner/manager’s office.

The Grassmarket with its bars, restaurants and hotels that are all especially busy around the time of the famous Edinburgh Festival, is close by.  Also within easy walking distance are Edinburgh Castle, The Scottish Parliament and the excellent and varied shops on Princes Street.

Jamie Jackson of Christie + Co’s Edinburgh office which is handling the sale of the property says: “The wonderful location means the business benefits from excellent footfall levels of the passing tourist trade making it very profitable.  It has been with the current owner for a number of years, during which they have invested in the business and created a high quality bistro that is busy all year round.” 

Christie + Co is seeking £120,000 for the leasehold interest in this business.
