The Blackbull is centrally located on Glasgow’s oldest road, High Street, whilst Brechin’s Bar is positioned in Govan, close to the underground and within walking distance from Ibrox Stadium.  

Brian Sheldon, Regional Director and Tony Spence, Associate Director at Christie & Co are jointly handling the sale.

Brian Sheldon, comments “Due to the current owner’s retirement, these four Glasgow public houses have been made available for sale either as a package, individually or any part thereof. The sites have been owned and operated as managed public houses for many years and are all currently freehold with individual managers in situ.

“They are being sold as going concerns and will be of interest to individual and regional multiple operators who are looking to add considerable barrelage to their existing stock. The public house sector, whilst facing challenges from various quarters, remains resilient, with some faring better than others depending on location and style of operation.”
