“The Quayside has gone through a fantastic renaissance with a number of high quality bars, restaurants and cafes opening and there is now once again a real buzz and vitality in what is a very special location.

Mr Matheson: “Flynn’s offers a superb opportunity with prime river frontage and we are already seeing a great level of interest in this building.”
