Situated at the town’s main crossroads, Drumlanrig Café & Chip Shop is a prominent business within the Thornhill community. The family-owned licensed restaurant and café has been operated by the Fusi family for over 90 years and is one of the most established businesses in the town, with an extremely loyal customer base.

The restaurant and café offers a traditional menu and boasts its own homemade Italian style ice-cream. The  venue also features a traditional takeaway fish & chip shop accessible from a separate entrance.  Also included within the sale is a large three bedroom flat directly above the cafe, which offers a good annual rental income. 

Liam Bain, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, comments, “Drumlanrig Café & Chip Shop offers a fantastic opportunity for a chef owner-operator to expand on an already fantastic, profitable business. The restaurant is generally run under management, with a full compliment of staff and currently trades with limited operating hours, which presents an opportunity for a new owner to increase turnover and profitability through extended opening hours. The new owner would be taking on a business that continues to provide strong margins and profitability.”

Drumlanrig Café & Chip Shop is on the market on a freehold basis, at a guide price £450,000.
