Property Features:

The White Elephant sits on the site of the former Merrylee Road Bar and Kitchen area of Shawlands on the south side of Glasgow, where residents typically have high disposable income. There is a vibrant local market and a loyal customer base for Shawlands businesses. The White Elephant is an open plan trading operation with a large bar/lounge entrance area that leads into a 40-60 seat restaurant. Known for its dining experience, it has a fully operational kitchen.

Function room space is very much in demand in the area, and the White Elephant provides this along with a large glass conservatory which is underutilised at present, but this would be capable of catering for up to 100 people. Externally the site has a small beer garden, which could easily be enlarged to provide a better outdoor offer in the good weather and car parking spaces for up to 20 cars.

A small investment may be available to incoming tenants to help improve and upgrade external signage and provide an internal sparkle.

Trading Style:

White Elephant has operated as a destination restaurant in Shawlands for over four years, known for its formal eating environment and attracting an associated customer base. It has a well-presented bar, which offers the opportunity to drive high-end wines, cocktails and gins, as well as craft and cask ales, beers and lagers.

The ideal operator will know the area and be aware of the customer demographics. The White Elephant presents an opportunity to build on a destination restaurant base with a bar and function room operation.

The pub company are looking for an experienced food operator and mid- to high-end drinks service. Marketing skills will also be beneficial.

Private Accommodation:

There is no private accommodation with this site.
