The village of Armadale is situated in West Lothian and is approximately 2 miles west of Bathgate and approximately midway between Edinburgh and Glasgow, and easily accessed via the M8. In the 1850s the town was developed into a major industrial site through the deposits of coal, ironstone, limestone and brick-clay.
The business has been run by the current proprietor for the last 3 years. During this time, it has mainly focused on wet sales and has generated a good reputation with much repeat custom from a consistent local clientele. New owners have the opportunity to continue this as well as grow the business further with offering private parties, functions, events etc. As well perhaps creating a food trade at the business.
The property is of traditional stone construction with a double door frontage, one leading into the public bar and the other leading into the function suite.
The public bar is traditionally presented with a non-slip floor, neutral décor and with a mix of spot lighting and subtle wall lights creates a welcoming atmosphere to the bar. Other features include the astragal glazed mirrors on the walls adding to the spacious feel of the room. There is fixed wall seating with free standing stools around timber top tables. The bar servery is on the adjacent wall upon entry and has all the usual facilities behind including a timber gantry. Beyond this area is the pool room / games room. This area again is very spacious with a modern suspended ceiling above, fixed wall seating, two pool tables, various gaming machines and darts lane. Both the bar and games room are well equipped with televisions showing live sporting events including football etc. Beyond this area and enjoying a separate entrance, although can be accessed from within, is the function suite. The function suite can comfortably hold 100 people and is similar in style to the public bar. This area could be utilised further with marketing for private parties and funerals etc.
Service areas within the property are extensive. There is a commercial kitchen, cellar, private office whilst Ladies and Gents toilets service the public areas.
