Pub overview

Town centre bar with function room, established food trade and recently refurbished beer garden.

The Kirkton offers the opportunity for an experienced operator to build on the fantastic facilities offered here. A welcoming bar, along with a first floor function room give the opportunity to expand the current level of both drinks and food trade, incorporating new types of business whether from business meetings, new groups using the function room, or the creation of theme nights/party nights/ business clubs etc. The beer garden, refurbished just last summer could be used for events, barbecues, and dining.

On entering the pub you step straight into the bar which is warm & welcoming with tables for dining. To the rear of this bar is the enclosed beer garden. Through a separate entrance, but also accessible from the bar, is the function suite, kitchen and an L shaped room with its own toilets.
