• Ideal for first time buyer or multiple operator

The Carousel Bar has been owned by our clients for over 30 years and is regarded as one of the oldest pubs in Bellshill, during this time it has built up an enviable reputation as a very well run and established “locals” bar. With its location in the town, parking and next to the railway station, it is very accessible and renowned for its friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Run completely under management, with the assistance of one other full time and 4 part time members of staff, makes it an excellent business opportunity for a first-time buyer or as an addition to a private multiple operator’s portfolio. At present the business is purely wet led, however due to the layout and size there is potential to put a small kitchen at the rear, subject to planning, which would enable a new owner to explore this avenue further.
The pub is well known for its regular entertainment and every week the pub hosts Karaoke on a Sunday (8pm-12) & Monday (5.30pm-9.30pm), DJ every Friday (9pm-1am) and live music every Saturday.
This is an exciting opportunity to purchase a busy wet led pub, that could be run remotely if required and a viewing would be recommended to fully appreciate the quality and potential on offer.
