Overview

Could you run this pub?

This community value pub in a southern suburb of Stirling has plenty to offer local residents – during the week and at weekends too. Creating a more mainstream offer to encourage weekend visits from a broader demographic of customers will be key here. An appropriate product range, environment and activities will help to appeal to a greater range of ages and prevent custom heading into the city centre. Making the most of the pub’s fantastic function room facilities will also help to boost trade.

Business Facilities

The Anchor occupies a prominent site on the main road into and out of the city of Stirling, so it benefits from plenty of passing trade. It’s an open plan trading operation, with a large bar area plus a separate games space with a pool table. Large windows and high ceilings give a light, airy feel throughout, and there’s free WiFi. Upstairs, a self-contained function room can cater for 50-60 people. It has a separate entrance, plus its own bar, toilet facilities and a kitchen preparation area. The pub has previously had a back bar food offer, so there’s scope to re-introduce a basic menu. Outside, there’s a small car park and a smoking solution.

About the local area

St Ninians is a heavily residential area of Stirling, which itself is a vibrant city in central Scotland, known as the ‘Gateway to The Highlands’. The historically significant town of Bannockburn is about 3 miles away and The Battle of Bannockburn Visitor Centre is located less than half a mile from the pub. The population in the St Ninians area is dominated by Family Basics and Aspiring Homemakers demographic groups, followed by Modest Traditions. The pub sits on the main A872 road into Stirling, alongside a small collection of local retailers. There’s also chip shop and a bookmakers nearby.

An ideal opportunity for a community-minded operator, who’s prepared to immerse themselves in community life and host local events. Strong rhythms of the week and annual celebrations will be important here.
