Could you run this pub?
The Mains of Scotstown, Bridge of Don in Aberdeen is a recently refurbished and well established destination bar and restaurant with a reputation for great service, fantastic food and a relaxing environment. Well established in the local area, the bar has been home to a long-term operator and has traded well during this period. The site is popular for its dining and gets especially busy over the key trading times such as special occasions and Christmas. This is a great opportunity for an experienced operator to introduce their fresh approach and offer and develop the business further.
The pub offers a spacious trading area which is divided into a large 120 seat restaurant, a 50 seat conservatory and a public drink space/sports bar area with darts and pool. The site also offers excellent, sheltered, external drinking space and a large car park for up to 30 cars. The restaurant and conservatory are in great condition with warm and welcoming decor as the pub was upgraded and refurbished to a high standard.
