A renowned public house in Dunbar, East Lothian is now under new ownership.

Bruce & Co. were instructed to place upon the market this historic public house which is located in Dunbar. This acclaimed establishment is aesthetically traditional and has won many awards for its service.

The business is a characterful pub, offering only the finest draught ales and beers. They cater to a large list of regular customers and additionally to a large number of general visitors to this popular tourist area. It offers the potential for further development and growth.

Having been long established in the popular town, this business has become a prominent cornerstone for the local community. It has rightfully earned a reputation for offering a time-honoured pub atmosphere.

Due to the renowned reputation of this business, the previous owners benefited from a tremendous number of satisfied customers and loyal trade.

The sale of The Black Bull offered a great opportunity to purchase a well-established public house. The pub benefits from an excellent location in one of East Lothian’s most sought-after locations.

Once placed upon the market, this business attracted a great deal of interest. After careful consideration and expert negotiations, the successful bid was made and Bruce & Co worked closely with all parties to ensure the deal was completed. This iconic public house is now set to continue the successful legacy established under a vibrant new owner.


The Vendor commented;


“The sale has been quite stressful, but Steve was very helpful in overcoming the obstacles that arose, I am happy that we have now completed the sale and we can concentrate on the purchase of our new home. I look forward to our retirement.”


Lead Negotiator Stephen Croft commented;


“This became quite an urgent sale, due to the owner’s wishes to purchase another property for their retirement. There were many challenges to face with this sale, but by working closely with both parties and their solicitors, we have successfully achieved a completion. This is all in perfect time for the Vendor to purchase their new home and enjoy their retirement.”
