Business description

All under one roof, there is a family dining room, a function room for events and a dog-friendly bar.
The property also includes self-catering accommodation, above the tavern itself; Burngreen House. This is for those who wish to enjoy time well spent in a picturesque corner of Scotland. It previously served as spacious owners accommodation.
The function room proves to be particularly lucrative for the business. The room can accommodate up to 150 seated guests and up to 250 standing. The room can be the ideal venue for weddings, birthdays, conferences, awards ceremonies and extended family dinners. However, there is no doubt that the classic bar is the heart of the tavern. With live sport, live entertainment, a jukebox, pub quizzes and a delicious menu of food and drink all available throughout the week, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Located in the heart of the stunning, historical town of Forres, the self-catering apartment situated above the tavern offers the perfect base to explore the Moray coast with many activities and attractions all just a short drive away. The four-bedroom apartment forms the top two floors of the property and provides a very spacious and modern accommodation space which can allow for up to twelve guests.
With just the right amount of tartan the dining room is a welcoming Scottish tavern but with an up-to-date look and feel. A mix of booths, benches and round tables means the room can accommodate up to 70 guests with up to 16 guests per party.

The property is available on a freehold basis.
