More Information

The High Dive is located in the densely populated Southside of Edinburgh City centre. A stones throw from the Commonwealth Pool, the area is popular with students and is surrounded by many residential properties. The pub is also just off the main road in to Edinburgh South so can be an great stopping off place for people on the way home from work.

The site was recently refurbished to a very high standard and has been run as a beer & pizza place and this will be retained.

Strong social media skills and an entrepreneurial spirit are essential to drive this business forward. Could that be you? Talk to us and pitch your ideas!

Trading Area & Facilities

The High Dive was once a traditional Victorian tenement pub and has been refurbished to retain some of that character whilst also being ultra-modern.

Currently the pub has a strong pizza over with 'theatre kitchen' and is centred around the bar that runs nearly the full length of the pub. There is a mix of booth, loose and bar stool seating similar to an American diner. There is a small prep area downstairs and the site is in 'walk in' condition.

Private Accommodation

There is no private accommodation on site.
