East Kilbride is a thriving town in Lanarkshire which has seen considerable and continuous investment over the last two decades. East Kilbride is the largest town in South Lanarkshire and is the home of the local authority head offices as well as being one of the main regional and commercial centres in the central belt of Scotland.
The Salmon Leap is located at the heart of the Calderwood community area surrounded by a mixture of local authority and private housing. The Salmon Leap forms part of a community shopping centre with a number of adjacent retail units.
The premises are very accessible, situated on Calderwood Road, the main road leading through Calderwood which links a short distance to the north to the East Kilbride Expressway.
The subjects are formed within a two storey building. There is access directly from the front leading into the ground floor bars. There is also a separate access at the front, into the function lobby. The premises benefit from a car park with space for approximately 15 cars. There is also a former Off Licence with external frontage and access, which is not in use, but could provide a separate hot food takeaway.
The accommodation internally is summarised as follows:

With separate staircase access, Function Suite 2 can be operated as a single venue or linked through to Function Suite 1 via an internal door. There is a large open plan area, with good sized bar servery. We would estimate a capacity for 140 persons.

The rateable value of the public house is £23,250 with effect from 1st April 2023. Rates payable will be approximately half this figure. A new occupier will have the right to appeal the rateable value.
The premises operate under a public house licence.
The property has undergone a substantial refurbishment. The premises main bars have been stripped back and reinstated to a modern, contemporary design. A new kitchen has been installed and other trading areas upgraded.
The premises provide a new tenant with a first class ‘walk in’ licensed premises and venue.
This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced licensed operator to develop a first class community wet & food led business, with the added benefit of two first floor function suites to maximise revenue and profits. In our opinion, the business is comfortably capable of generating revenues of at least £17,500 gross per week.
The premises are being placed on the market at Rental Offers Over £60,000 per annum. There is a Nil Premium for the fixtures and fittings, although the fixtures and fittings will remain in the ownership of the landlord. A rental deposit and personal guarantee will be required from an incoming tenant. We envisage a lease term of at least 3 years, albeit this is negotiable. The tenant will be tied to purchase draught and bottled beer from the landlord, although a high discount per barrel will be passed back to the tenant.
