Kilwinning is a growing town of around 16,000 residents within North Ayrshire region, approximately 25 miles south west of Glasgow and 4 miles north of Irvine.

‘The Lemon Tree’ is an established busy town centre pub and restaurant contained within a four storey terraced property of traditional construction. The ground floor of the building contains a well presented, traditionally styled pub with bar which is currently rented. The landlord is looking to let the restaurant independently of the pub which is on the first, second and third floor. Customers have the option to access the pub and restaurant from within the building. This may mean having a meal upstairs and then going for a drink/entertainment downstairs, thereby creating a greater business opportunity as each one will attract customers for the other. However each unit also has the option to be independently closed and locked off.
A central stairwell provides access to the upper floors with the first floor offering a function suite which seats approximately 75-80 people it contains its own bar which is fitted with a till and has a license to sell alcohol. There is a larder room which can be converted to its own cellar thereby creating a fully indpendant bar to the restaurant. There are also various male/female toilets and washing facilities. The rooms are all in good condition but some parts may need modernizing or minor repairs.
The second floor consists of a large fully kitted catering kitchen, with commercial ovens, extractor fans, fridges, freezers, deep fryers and more. The equipment is not warrantied and would be taken as seen. This equipment hasn't been used for close to two years and would therefore require cleaning with some requiring a possible service. The tenant would be responsible to clean and maintain service. There is also a separate laundry room which contains various catering sinks and spaces for cleaning facilities. It also contains a storage cup-board as well as staff toilets.
The attic floor contains a four room flat which is currently used as storage. The rooms within the flat contain fitted furniture in good condition.
All applicants will be considered subject to vetting.
