Opportunity to acquire established business
A Rural Ayrshire inn has come onto the books of property firm Bruce & Co.
Located on the main street of the village of Sorn, the Sorn Inn is said to attract both local and passing trade from further afield – and benefit from a high level of repeat custom. Despite its rural setting, the inn is just 15 minutes from Kilmarnock and 35 minutes south of Glasgow.
The Sorn Inn benefits from a mix of locals and customers from further afield.
A traditionally-built property, the inn has been extended and modernised over the years to comprise a public bar, a 45-cover restaurant, and the ‘Chop House’ dining area, which can accommodate up to 16 covers and is said to be more casual than the restaurant.
In terms of accommodation, the inn has four double letting rooms, which are all en suite and described as being in walk-in condition.
There are also two one-bedroom flats, which are accessed via a main door from the street and communal stairway.
The Sorn Inn has been run by the current owners since 2002 and has been put on the market due to their retirement from the trade.
Bruce & Co, which is marketing the inn with a guide price of offers in the region of £320,000 for the freehold, described the Sorn Inn as an “extremely well-run business”.
“The sale of the Sorn Inn offers a rare opportunity to purchase a high quality, beautifully presented business which is trading well but with potential for expansion of the business,” said the property agent.
