Job description:

I am looking for ideally a couple, one a head chef and one a manager to take on a lease for the Steam Packet Inn in the Isle of Whithorn.

Situated in a beautiful location overlooking the harbour. In South West Scotland some 20 miles from Newton Stewart and a 45 minute drive from Stranraer.

Current turnover is £580,000 in the last financial year and there is potential to grow the business.

The owner also has a local brewery and sells their own beer in the Inn.

There is a very good and stable team in place including chefs who have worked in the kitchen for many years.

There is also a good assistant manager.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a couple to have their own business and to make a good living.

This is a stunning and rural location with excellent fishing, golfing and walking.

Very much an opportunity to have quality of life.

The Inn is open all year round but is very busy in the typical season of March to October.

You will be responsible for all day to day costs of the business such as wages, cost of goods sold, electricity rates, gas and so on.

The owner, who has run the business for the last 20 years will happily provide a good and concise handover.

If you think this sounds like the perfect opportunity which you have been waiting for please forward your details to:
