More Information

City Centre, Edinburgh Location!

The Crosstown is situated in Fountainbridge and is two minutes’ walk from Lothian Road, Edinburgh City Centre, one of the busiest roads through town.

Sat on a corner plot, The Crosstown has great kerb appeal and is fronted by large windows, it’s the perfect place to sit and watch the world go by with a cold pint or a fresh coffee.

The pub is surrounded by student and residential accommodation, local businesses and offices. Lunchtime and after work trade is essential to the success of The Crosstown.

Currently the pub has a decent reputation for food. In the early evening the offer is more drinks led with a vibrant crowd visiting for the entertainment. There is a small enclosed external drinking area.

There is a small kitchen prep area and with an abundance of food operators within the local vicinity the challenge would be to offer a quirky back bar food operation that would be fresh, appealing and easy to deliver to the customer base who are looking for a quick lunch.

This is an ideal pub for someone who wishes to make the leap into operating a small pub and requires someone with vision and flair to maximize the current offer.

  • Business Start Up Agreement

  • Catering Kitchen

  • Outdoor Trade

Trading Area & Facilities

The Crosstown is deceptive as it looks small from outside but is actually quite large inside.

Although basically a one room operation with an extensive range of premium drinks and cask ales, the space can be zoned for events and is popular on the folk music scene. The pub is attractively decorated and well maintained.

There is a small kitchen area that currently supports the popular back bar food menu.

There is a small enclosed external drinking area.
