Description This is a successful bar and restaurant venue that has been owned and operated by the current vendor since 2014. The property was fully refurbished when the vendor took over and has been well maintained since. As such the business is now offered in true walk in condition. The business has traded successfully for nearly 5 years under the ownership of the current vendors, who have built up a profitable and successful business. The current vendors are selling the lease, as the premises size no longer fits with their business plan.

We are advised the current lease can be renegotiated with the landlord for a long lease. The trading name is not included, which is reflecting in the asking price

Stirling is a city in central Scotland. The city is clustered around a large fortress and medieval old town. Stirling is the administrative centre for the Stirling council area.. The city is located several miles to the west of the mouth of the River Forth. Historically it was strategically important as the "Gateway to the Highlands", with its position near the Highland Boundary Fault between the Scottish Lowlands and Highlands and has been described as the brooch which clasps the Highlands and the Lowlands together. Once the capital of Scotland, Stirling contains the Great Hall and the Renaissance Palace within Stirling Castle. Stirling also has its medieval parish church, the Church of the Holy Rude, where King James VI was crowned King of Scots on 29 July 1567. The Holy Rude still functions, with a service every Sunday. Stirling is a centre for local government, higher education, retail, and industry. In 2002, as part of Queen Elizabeth ii's Golden Jubilee, Stirling was granted city status.
