OPERATORS of the acclaimed Dogs restaurant collection are selling one of their premises in an attempt to ride out difficult trading conditions.

Seadogs has been placed on the market due to a downturn in the restaurant trade.

David Ramsden, who runs The Dogs, said times are extremely challenging for the sector.

He said: “It has become clear in Edinburgh that the market has been contracting at a frightening rate. I put Seadogs on the market in an attempt to contract the group and downsize, rather than face the possibility of getting into serious trouble.”

Mr Ramsden added that he is still concerned about the future of his remaining restaurants, The Dogs and Amore Dogs.

He said: “If the euro collapses, the impact everywhere is going to be enormous and it can only drive people further back into themselves. It’s very tough. It’s really a case of living day by day.”
