McNabbs is situated in a first class location on a busy arterial route and also within a densely populated area. The premises currently trade as a traditional bar serving the local community. The business would be ideal to continue trading as a traditional bar or may also be suitable for conversion to a more food led operation, which may include a café bar, restaurant or café. Although the premises do not have a fitted extraction within the kitchen, one could easily be added given that the premises are single storey.
This is an ideal opportunity for an experienced publican or restauranteur to acquire a property in a first class trading location with clear trading potential. Historically, the business traded in the region of £320,000 net of VAT.
