A roadside restaurant popular with commuters from the north-east travelling on the A90 is set to move.
Don’t worry though, you won’t have to travel too much further for your Behemoth Bacon Roll as the much loved Horn Milk Bar, is only moving 100 metres at an estimated cost of £1 million.
The diner, which sits to the side of the A90 between Dundee and Perth, hopes to create a “modern fit-for-purpose” diner at the nearby Inchmichael flyover.
The favourite stop for football fans, festival goers and generally hungry south bound folk from the north-east, hope to be open 24 hours a day, offer a new takeaway service and will double current staffing levels from 12 to 24.
Planning submissions, states The Horn is “one of the oldest” roadside services in Scotland.
The document continues that: “It is imperative to understand that this is not simply constructing a new building, but relocating the Horn – a long-established, successful business – to an adjacent location, in order to satisfy the expectations and needs of existing and future clientele.
“We must remain recession-proof and build on 60 years’ experience and reputation as an institution, by upgrading and constructing a new, improved Horn.
“Additionally, the task is to transform the Horn from a predominantly transient location to a destination point locally and nationally.”
The documents also highlight that current parking for cars and coaches is “totally inadequate” and not “fit-for-purpose”.
“The Dundee-bound bus stop is an especially dangerous crossing across the A90.
“We would suggest there may be an opportunity to consider repositioning the bus stops. We can draw comparisons with the multi-award-winning Tebay services near Penrith.”
