THE historic Fintry Inn has a new owner - who paid more than £350,000 for the pub.

Christie + Co handled the sale, which was sold freehold to a “local businessman”.

The pub (right) was sold as a “public/lounge bar, a games area and a restaurant. In addition to the public areas there are three self-contained flats, one of which has previously been used as owner’s accommodation.”

Graeme Smith, director at Christie + Co, said: “The Fintry Inn has been an inn since 1750 and it occupies a prominent location in the village.

“Having bought the business in 2005, the current owners have run it very much to suit their requirements.

“During their ownership the pub has built up an excellent reputation in both the village and the surrounding area, and the current breakdown of trade is approximately 53 per cent wet, 32 per cent food and 15 per cent accommodation.”
