The business has been in our clients’ hands for the last 14 years during which time our clients have managed to build up an exceptional trading business. In most cases, year on year, our clients have managed to increase turnover to today’s impressive level.
The business trades as a high quality village pub offering excellent home cooked meals and traditional pub fayre to a large loyal customer base as well as those transient customers who come to the village, whether they be daytrippers or holidaymakers. This area of Fife has also received a boost in terms of tourist numbers due to the filming of the Outlander TV series, an American based historic drama, filmed in nearby Culross.
The business is currently run by a husband (chef) and wife team with the assistance of part-time members of staff.
