160 The Boat House etc

David Calder, Harem Murdochy

The problems surrounding The Boat House at the western end of Portobello Prom are well known. It opened to great fanfare last year, just in time for the lucrative summer trade, It was a substantial expansion of the old Cropley's Bar and the vast majority of people saw it as considerable improvement. With a bar and restaurant, it was another reason to head to the bottom of King's Road. OK, the view wasn't perfect but the food, the service and the company were good. However, the City of Edinburgh Council threw a massive spanner in the works when it ordered the new wooden extension torn down because it didn't have planning permission. Producer David Calder has been along to speak to the owner Haren Murdochy.
