Dundee-based SHK Property and Investments has appointed J&E Shepherd Chartered Surveyors to market a former Little Chef on the A90, which it is in the process of transforming into a famous Bervie Chipper, as available for let.

The fully renovated and fitted fish and chip restaurant, the only roadside catering opportunity on the south bound carriageway of the A90 dual carriageway between Aberdeen and Forfar, is located at Balnabreich, just three miles west of Brechin, Angus.

Tony Hussain, managing director of SHK Property and Investments said, “Easily accessible from both carriageways, this completely refurbished outlet represents a rare opportunity to secure a purpose built roadside restaurant/café.

“The property is well known within the local area, having traded as a Little Chef for many years. The premises are currently being refitted to a high standard for let under the banner of the Bervie Chipper, a name synonymous with the area.”

The 160 sq m premises are being fitted out to accommodate 60 covers in the restaurant on a site with marked bays for 29 cars.

SHK is seeking a premium of £50,000 with an annual rent of £30,000. Interested parties should contact Rob Whitson at J&E Shepherd chartered surveyors on tel 01382 200454.
