A family-run bar and restaurant, it has been in the McGarrigle family since 1981 and for the past 30 years has been overseen by Gerry and Eileen McGarrigle. However, Gerry sadly passed away recently and his sister, Eileen, has now decided to put the business on the market.

The restaurant can seat up to 70 covers and has a good reputation for serving good quality, home cooked food.

Josh Hill, Business Agent in Christie & Co's Glasgow office who is handling the sale, comments, “We are delighted to bring to the market this popular bar and restaurant. The business provides a great opportunity to further its trading potential and it would suit both a husband and wife team or a chef proprietor, for example.”

Eileen McGarrigle comments, “Gerry ran the pub side of the business and was a popular and respected landlord.  He was the heart and soul of the business and I now feel that this is the right time to move on and sell the business to a new owner who will further enhance the business.”

Christie & Co is seeking offers over £295,000 for the freehold concern.
