Murray Polbeth

Local Neighbourhood Pub

Situated in a densely populated housing estate in Polbeth, West Calder, the Murray is an established community pub. The pub sits beside a fire station, school and local grocery shop, ensuring a regular footfall past the pub. The residents surrounding the site allows an operator to build a loyal customer base. The Murray offers a drinks and events led offer at present, offering weekly quiz nights and DJs. The future vision for the site would be to continue a programme of events but introduce a simple back bar offer, a coffee offer for day-time guests, new cask ales and on-trend cask beers and a focus on high standards.

The Estimated Licensee Fixtures & Fittings (F&F) Value assumes that the pub will be let on a Rolling Tenancy or Business Start-Up Agreement, where we own the majority of the F&F. The F&F Value for Full Repairing & Insuring Leases will be significantly more.

The calculation of the Estimated Minimum Ingoing Costs assumes a minimum deposit of 1 month's rent or £3,000 (whichever is greater) and that fixtures and fittings (F&F) are rented. The subsequent deposit build up and F&F rental costs are not included in the rent model or ongoing costs below.
