Beer beside the seaside in Ayr’s Bridges Bar

BRIDGES BAR in Ayr is on sale as a going concern, with offers over £235,000 invited.

Situated on Sandgate, in a prominent location near to Ayr Town Hall and part of an established town centre licensed trade circuit, Bridges occupies the ground floor of a two and three storey traditional end terraced tenement.

The 1166 square foot premises has a bar area formed over a split level, decorated along traditional lines with banquette seating and a range of interesting memorabilia adorning the walls, alongside modern ladies and gents’ toilets, a small storeroom and basement cellarage.

Shepherd Chartered Surveyors has recently reduced the asking price for this well-known hostelry. Shepherd partner Kevin Bell said: “Bridges Bar is a family run business, and the owner has reluctantly decided to sell due to his impending retirement, having operated the business for 46 years building up a loyal clientele during that time.

“Bridges Bar is a traditional wet sales led single bar operation which has generated consistent profits year upon year with current figures at pre-Covid levels.”
