Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established hotel/public house and restaurant business in the village of Ballantrae, Ayrshire. The public house was originally established in 1765 and has been in our clients` careful ownership since 2005.

Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients` unfortunate health issues. The business operates 7 days per week and generates a very healthy turnover in the region of £173,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 54% as per accounts to 2015.

Our clients` offers 6-letting rooms, traditional pub food and an extensive range of alcohol served in the public bars. The property boasts a large dining room with approximately 50 covers and a fully equipped commercial kitchen, fully stainless steel for hygiene purposes and a preparation room.

All the letting rooms have a friendly, homely feel, some with en-suite facilities and tea/coffee making facilities. The property is well equipped to suite the trade and has been decorated and maintained to a very high standard.

The business has an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the fayre, accommodation and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base with a vast amount of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover as the business is currently run at a pace to suit our client. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this popular and thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
