Looking to run a pub?
The Dunblane is a Cask Marque traditional community pub which sits in the centre of the town of Dunblane nearby small businesses, local shops and the Dunblane train station. This traditional style pub offers some fabulous facilities including a cosy public bar and lounge bar, a kitchen for pub meals and lite bites and small external riverside beer garden for warmer days, car parking and opportunity to drive extra income with its letting rooms. Punch are planning a refurbishment to enhance these facilities and the pub offers a great opportunity to develop cask beer, food and letting business.
This pub site has a public bar with its own entrance. The bar space is good for sports and sports teams, cask beer and popular with the town locals. The lounge bar offers family friendly space and an area for food. There is also a small beer garden which overlooks the river for drinking with friends and there is also a smoking area.
There are plans to refurbish the pub to offer up to 6 letting rooms (the full plans and design are to be confirmed) and there may also be a potential function room upstairs too. The Catering kitchen is to be upgraded and there will be an external decoration and toilet upgrades. Internal bar and lounge will be decorated. There may be potential to add outdoor space using the parking area.
