• The Old Mill in Killearn is a former weaving mill which dates back to 1774.
Chance to run gastropub in picturesque village
A NEW operator is being sought for a pub and restaurant in the village of Killearn, 16 miles north of Glasgow.
The Old Mill is a converted weaving mill, which is said to date back to 1774.
The property features a main bar, snug bar, servery, 22-cover restaurant, commercial kitchen and beer garden with space for 66 covers.
It also has a raised timber decking area and outside children’s play area, as well as a car park which is shared with the adjoining retail shop.
The pub has two entrances leading to the main bar, which is furnished with former church pews.
The business is currently closed, but property firm Seymour & Clink said it was previously “very well known for its food”.
A spokeswoman said: “There is great local support for the pub and a very strong food-led business could be created. Ideally this would suit an operator looking to create a gastropub for the north of Glasgow to enjoy.”
A new ten-year lease, free of trade ties, is being offered for £45,000 per annum.
Lease terms are negotiable and incentives are said to be available.
The property is on the market with a price tag of offers over £25,000 for the leasehold interest, trade, fixtures, fittings and goodwill of the business which is being sold as a going concern.
