Looking to run a pub?
This recently refurbished community mainstream pub is just waiting for the right operator to make a real success of this business. With a fantastic beer garden boosting trade in the summer months, it offers everything needed to quickly establish itself as the go-to local drinking, dining and weekend entertainment hub.
Recently refurbished inside and out, the Argyll & Sutherland has an open plan layout. Inside, it offers a traditional public bar area and a large lounge/restaurant space that’s ideally set up to serve lunch and evening meals, while also becoming an entertainment hub at weekends. The catering kitchen can provide up to 60 covers at full capacity. Outside, there’s a fantastic beer garden, which is expected to become the go-to place for local drinkers in warmer weather, giving the operator a real boost over summer months. The pub also offers on-site parking for up to 10 vehicles, a smoking solution and free WiFi for customers’ use.
Please note that there is no domestic accommodation with this pub.
About the local area
The Argyll & Sutherland sits on a prominent corner plot on the main A78 road into and out of the town of Greenock, which is set on the banks of the River Clyde and Firth of Clyde about 22 miles west of Glasgow. The pub is a matter of metres away from the Greenock West railway station and also just a short walk from the local college. The town centre is also close. Although it is a mainly residential area, there are also a number of small shops, takeaway outlets and other retail units nearby, which create a small community within this part of the town.
This pub may suit
