Pub tenancies - Spotlight on Belhaven Pubs

If you’re thinking of running a pub in Scotland, running a Belhaven pub has to be top of your list! The Belhaven Brewery has a fantastic reputation in Scotland, it’s the longest running brewery in the country, and Belhaven pubs to let are equally as popular.

Belhaven offers pub operators a huge amount of different pub opportunities. Scotland’s cities, towns and villages support local community pubs and destination pubs for eating out, or for live music, sports and other entertainment. As well as local residents, there are is a seasonal influx of visitors to the country, including holidaymakers and those attending major events, such as the Edinburgh Fringe, and people on business or working in industry.

Highlighted below are just a few of our pubs that - at the time of publishing this post - were available in Scotland. We have other pubs available to let with Belhaven across the country; you can search for all of them here.

Belhaven Pub Tenancies – What’s Available?

The pubs listed below were available at the time of publishing, they will give you a flavour of the fine pubs we have at Belhaven and the opportunities available to our pub opertors.

Abergeldie Bar – pub to let in Aberdeenshire

The Abergeldie Bar boasts a fantastic, secluded beer garden that would make it a great destination for local families and visitors to the area. Located in a residential area of Aberdeen, with a buoyant student population too, this pub needs someone to give it direction and maximise its obvious potential.

The Abergeldie Bar would suit either a first time operator or someone with food experience that would like to develop the site. There is great scope to improve on the offer and build a reputation for good food and a family friendly environment. With such a great catchment area on the outskirts of the city centre, the new licensee has an excellent opportunity to increase sales and grow profits.

Carnock Inn – pub to let in Fife

This pub already has a great reputation for food, in fact award winning, and therefore offers a great opportunity to a pub operator who wants to continue on this success. The facilities include dining areas, regulars bar, decked patio and beer garden, children’s play area, and accommodation for guests.

The Carnock Inn is situated in the village of Carnock; there is a planned investment for this pub, refurbishing it fully. Therefore it would suit an experienced operator who wants to take it to the next level.

The Clachnaharry Inn – pub to let in Inverness-shire

The Clachnaharry Inn has established itself as a popular destination pub for tourists and locals alike in Inverness. It’s a traditional community pub with a distinctly modern Scottish feel; from the décor in the bar, dining room and lounge areas, to the menu that features plenty of Scottish fare.

This pub would suit a couple or single owner operator looking for their first pub, or someone with experience who loves the area and wants to be part of this community. The pub is on the outskirts of Inverness, close to the railway line with its steam train, and has fantastic views over the Black Isle and Caledonian Canal from the garden.

Strathaven – pub to let in Lanarkshire

This newly refurbished pub in Strathaven, also called the Strathaven, is a great opportunity for a pub operator looking to offer a range of services from one pub. The pub offers many income streams including food, drink, entertainment, sport, alfresco drinking and dining & private function room, and also includes two flats that could be sublet to provide further revenue.

The Strathaven is situated in the heart of the town and is therefore a popular destination for residents and visitors to the area.

Centurion – pub to let in Midlothian

The Centurion in Edinburgh has recently been refurbished and is a popular sports led pub in the local community. As part of the investment project the pub now has a commercial kitchen, providing an additional revenue stream for the right pub operator.

Situated in the Costorphine area of the city, we think this is a great opportunity for a local operator who knows the area and wants to take this pub to the next level; offering local residents great value food and drinks as well as sports and other entertainment.

Ionic Bar – pub to let in Moray

The Ionic Bar is a small pub in Elgin and the perfect size - with attractive entry costs - for someone wanting to run a pub for the first time or take on a pub tenancy without needing a large investment. It has provided the current tenants with a good level of income and an opportunity to run a ‘proper’ pub in the heart of the community.

The right operator will embrace the lifestyle that comes with running a community pub: knowing what regulars like to drink, supporting local events, and providing a hub for residents in this area of the town. The Ionic Bar will benefit from an operator who understands the importance of customer service and provide customers with a reason to visit again. Regular events as well as a warm welcome should help drive sales and profits for this particular pub.

Gryffe Inn – pub to let in Renfrewshire

This established pub in Bridge of Weir has a planned full investment to take it to the next level and upgrade and refurbish the current facilities. The Gryffe Inn would suit an experienced operator looking to take on a landmark site and develop it for the future.

Situated close to Glasgow and Paisley, Bridge of Weir is a popular village with a commercial centre with a population of just under 5,000.

Village Inn – pub to let in Stirlingshire

The Village Inn is in the town of Dunblane and is popular with locals and tourists. This is a traditional pub with scope to build on the current food and drink offer and increase trade. Situated in the heart of the town centre, this pub can attract plenty of passing trade as well as regular custom from people living in and around Dunblane.

We run a Belhaven Facebook group for anyone interested in getting into the pub trade in Scotland, and for existing pub operators. The aim of the group is to share ideas, experience and insights into the trade and to support each other in making our pubs a success. Please click here to join.
