Historic pub goes up for sale
A 300 year-old city centre pub has been put up for sale.
One of the city’s oldest watering holes, Nicky Tams Bar and Bothy, has been placed on the market at £310,000.
The popular Baker Street hostelry has been listed on the online real estate portal, Right Move, marketed by DM Hall of Edinburgh.
The current proprietor has owned the establishment for the last 20 years, having let out the business for a period before taking it over again four years ago.
The pub includes a ground floor that consists of the main bar area with seating, gents w/c and cellar. On the first floor is further seating and a function area, kitchen and ladies w/c.
The listing says:“As one of the oldest pubs in Stirling, opening its doors in 1718, the inside of the premises has kept to its traditional styling and décor which helps to promote the pub’s family friendly atmosphere. The property is suitable for immediate occupation and requires minimal capital expenditure.
“A varied selection of local musicians play throughout the week with an open mic night on Wednesdays helping to draw in the large population of local students as well as visiting tourists. The large seating area on the first floor provides ideal space for functions such as birthdays, christenings, engagements and similar.”
The pub is run by the owners along with four full time staff and two part time staff.
Nicky Tams was originally owned by Laird Graigengelt and the family crest is still visible above the doors. The building was then purchased by The Weavers Incorporation as one of the five Trade Houses operating in Scotland.
