The town of Dumfries has a population in excess of 40,000 people and is situated in South West Scotland. Dumfries is the largest town in the area and is therefore a major commercial centre for the region. The town has excellent facilities including good schooling, large teaching hospital and three 18 hole golf courses. The area is known for its mild climate and is just an hour and a half's drive from both Glasgow and Edinburgh and approximately 40 minutes drive from Carlisle. The White Hart Hotel occupies a central position within the town with the surrounding area steeped in natural history.
The White Hart is a busy and profitable business that has been run by the current owner since 1995. The pub/hotel has been placed on the market to allow the current owner to move on to other business interests and to semi-retire from the trade. The business trades throughout the year with a good mix of wet sales and rooms. The pub/hotel is a traditional town pub and lives at the heart of everything in the community. The White Hart has positioned itself well with regular trade and is viewed by many of its patrons as the “Best Pub in the Town”. This business is ideal for a couple or individual looking for that traditional town life with everything that it has to offer, combined with a good standard of accommodation on which to build on.
The White Hart Hotel is a large detached property of brick construction with various rendered painted finishes under a pitched roof. The owner’s spacious accommodation occupies the top floor above the main bar area and accommodation level.
The public bar areas are well presented and have that cosy traditional feel you’d expect with a building of this age and location. There are hard wood floors throughout with a mix of decor that complement each other perfectly. The main bar and the snug bar areas are accessed from the main entrance with the service areas well positioned throughout the building. This gives a great deal of flexibility depending on what’s required from each area with ladies and gents toilets on the ground floor.
The hotel offers a fantastic mix of rooms available, all finished to a very high quality of decor and services and this is one area that could be developed going forward.
Occupying the top floor of the building is this well designed one bedroom self-contained apartment with open roof space terrace.
Service areas are well equipped with dry store, cellar, spirit store and external areas currently used for storage.
To the side of the property is a well appointed beer garden area within the footprint with car parking to the front and side of the building.
The property has all mains services connected.
The business trades with all the necessary licences in place.
We have been informed the current average gross sales are £285,000 pa. Full trading figures will be made available after a formal viewing has taken place.
The sale of the White Hart Hotel/Pub offers an opportunity to purchase a Freehold business within the town which very rarely becomes available. It is presented as a walk in business with the potential for much more to the right buyers. It benefits highly from its village location and offers a real lifestyle to its next owners.
