A “POPULAR locals bar” in a historic Scottish town has gone on the market.

The owners of the Woodcutter pub in Galashiels have put the bar up for sale and are looking for offers in the region of £150,000.

The pub is in an “elevated position” near to the centre of the historic Borders town.

Graham and Sibbald is promoting the sale of the freehold interest in the pub.

The agent said that the property is currently let to a “local operator,” and sales could be considered either with a tenant in place or vacant.

A spokesperson for the property consultants said: “The property is at present let to a local operator. Our client is happy to look at offers either with the existing tenant in place or with vacant possession.

“The Woodcutter public house is located in a local shopping area on the outskirts of Galashiels.

“The premises sit on an elevated position with communal parking to the front and commercial access to the rear.”

The listing described the pub as a “popular locals bar” with a lounge/function room, a public bar, and the potential “for food sales with good sized kitchen”.

The first recorded reference to Galashiels is from 1124, according to VisitScotland.

The town saw a textiles boom in the 19th century, and is now home to The Great Tapestry of Scotland, one of the world’s largest community art projects.
