The business
Cattle & Creel opened for business in December 2015, after our client purchased and knocked together two adjoining properties, and undertook a painstaking and substantial development to create the stunning premises that exist today.

In this time the business has developed a tremendous reputation for its food and service and enjoys a loyal and regular clientele derived from Helensburgh and the surrounding towns and villages, the Faslane Naval Base, as well as benefitting from high levels of tourist and day trippers.

The business prides itself on serving only the best quality local produce, celebrating the best of Scotland’s larder, and specialising in freshly caught Scottish seafood and locally sourced steaks and meats. The business also offers an extensive drinks menu, offering a good range of beers, wines, spirits and cocktails.

Due to our client’s other businesses, the Cattle & Creel is run completely under management and it is felt that it would benefit further from a more hands-on owner operator.

Property Information




The subjects benefit from a prominent waterfront trading position on the north side of West Clyde Street (A814), which forms part of the promenade, coastal route and main traffic thoroughfare within the established Clyde Coast town of Helensburgh, which lies within Argyll & Bute.

Helensburgh is an affluent and highly desirable town, situated close to Loch Lomond National Park, which is popular with commuters due to its proximity to Glasgow, with excellent transport links including being served by 2 railway stations. It serves as a main shopping centre for the area and is popular with tourists and day trippers, attracted to the seaside resort and the various outdoor pursuits the area has to offer. Loch Lomond itself is only a 10-minute drive away.

Helensburgh town centre is home to a good selection of shops, offices, cafes pubs and restaurants, with a good mix of local and national operators. Helensburgh is a popular eating and drinking destination, and nearby venues include La Barca, Padrone, Sugar Boat, JD Wetherspoons and Masala Twist.

Helensburgh, which has seen much investment in recent years, also benefits from the nearby Faslane Naval Base, which is situated only 6 miles away and provides significant income to the town from the base and the regular influx of visiting submarines and military personnel. HM Naval Base Clyde will be home to all of the UK’s submarines by the end of 2020. As one of the largest employers in Scotland, it is increasing the number of people employed there from around 6,800 now to approximately 8,200 by 2022.
