Bruce and Co are pleased to introduce to the market, The Glue Pot, a popular local public house located in the Scottish Borders. The business has been under the very caring ownership of our client for over 28 years and has been established for even longer. Throughout our clients ownership the business has established an outstanding customer base of local and loyal clientele and the business is heavily supported by the local community. Although trade received is predominantly from local residents the business also attracts new custom from passing trade due to its excellent tourist location in the Scottish borders. The business trades well with revenue derived from wet sales only and despite this already being a profitable and successful business there is still scope to increase turnover by introducing food sales and some additional marketing.

Galashiels is a bustling town in the Scottish borders and is also positioned on the A7 road from Carlisle to Edinburgh. The A7 splits as it runs through Galashiels, forming the one way system surrounding the town centre. Overlooking the junction where the road comes together before heading south to Selkirk is the town's most striking building, the Burgh Chambers.

The business premises occupy a stand alone property split over 2 levels. The building is of stone appearance with traditional frontage and is well presented externally. Inside, the main bar area is furnished with wooden tables, chairs and stools and leather wall mounted seating and the room is finished in a traditional style. The current open plan design creates a spacious bar area with a timber bar situated to the left hand side of the ground floor with the pool room in the attached room. The Glue Pot also benefits from a function room on the top floor but currently this part of the business is not marketed.
