Drysdale and Company said: “There is the potential to add additional external licensed space within the private car park to the front of the property, which benefits from longer sunlight hours.

“Food has recently started being served again and is proving popular with customers, this is an avenue that could certainly be established and grown.

"The bedrooms are used sporadically for paying guests and there is significant potential to increase sales and profitability by upgrading and developing the bedroom space to provide ensuite apartments for short to medium term guests.
