Wellingtons Bar is located on Wellington Square opposite public gardens and within close proximity of both Ayr town centre and the beach esplanade. The area is busy both day and night with a combination of workers, local residents and visitors to the beach.

The licensed premises occupies the lower ground and part of the ground floor of a terraced Georgian property while the separate owner’s accommodation enjoys a private location in a courtyard to the rear.

The premises are finished along traditional lines and is well appointed throughout, including bar area together with a fully fitted commercial kitchen, cellarage and modern customer toilets.

The owner’s accommodation is detached from the main bar premises and is a generously proportioned two bed house with large lounge area, kitchen and modern bathroom.

Kevin Bell, Partner in the commercial department of Shepherd in Ayr, said: “The business is essentially wet sales led and is indeed an award-winning Real Ale venue, with food sales limited to lunchtimes only. While the bar has been consistently profitable and is showing increasing levels of turnover, there is scope to further develop trade, particularly the food side of the business.

“With the bar qualifying for 100% rates remission under the Small Business Bonus Scheme, we anticipate keen interest in this attractive opportunity.”

Offers over £350,000 are invited. Interested parties should contact the sole selling agent on tel 01292 267987.
