Beancross has a very central location, approximately 2 miles from Grangemouth, 2 miles from Falkirk, 13 miles from Stirling, 30 miles from Glasgow and 25 miles from Edinburgh. Beancross has been developed on a prominent position, adjacent to the M90 motorway. The ease of access and prominence of the location assists in attracting a large customer base from central Scotland. The population of Falkirk District, as a whole, is estimated in the region of 145,000 persons. We would estimate a population of 2 Million within a 30/40 minute drive time.
Specifically, the subjects lie in a prominent roadside location, immediately off the Laurieston/Polmont bypass (A9), which links Falkirk to Grangemouth. The site is visible from the M9 motorway and, indeed, lies between junctions 5 and 6 which provide access and egress to the motorway.
The Beancross Restaurant and Hotel is formed within the original West Beancross Farm Buildings which were completely re-developed in 1996/1997 to form Beancross Hotel, Bar & Restaurant. These principal buildings are a mixture of two storey and single storey stone construction. The main feature of the bar and restaurant building is the hexagonal “Horse Engine” conservatory, which is a stone building accommodating a diner with an attractive external appearance. The adjacent car park will be included in the leased demise (space for 60 cars). The overall topography of the site is level.

The premises are currently in the process of a full refurbishment. The incoming tenant will, therefore, benefit from a newly fitted and equipped hotel/licensed premises. The date of entry is likely to be around October 2021. Please note that the photographs used in this brochure are old photographs pre the current refurbishment.
Rateable Value: £145,000 with effect from 1st April 2017.
We have assumed that the premises are connected to mains water, gas, and electricity.
There is a premises licence in place.
Great level of historic sales in the region of £1.1 to £1.2m per annum net of VAT.
The business enjoyed a high level of sales and profitability over the three trading years pre the COVID-19 Pandemic. Please note that accommodation sales are artificially low due to an internal contract for long stay student trade, the revenue for which is not included in the accommodation sales above.
The property has all physical attributes to benefit from the likely ‘boom period’ after the pandemic having a larger internal floor plate with a variety of trading areas and great outside space. With fully maximising bedroom income, we believe the business can generate revenue in excess of £1.75 Million net under the operation of an experienced licensed operator.
