EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST WANTED for a very well set up bar to lease or for sale! Yes, after a bit of a rocky road Bernie from McGregors on Reece wants to see if there is anyone that would like the opportunity to run their own bar? It is very well set up and I am open to any ideas. Winter will be here soon and this bar is very popular being tucked away in a well built up area. For the food that is needed on site when you have a liquor license we could make an area beside the bar to make pizzas and also food could be made and brought through when the front shop is open.
