Girvan is a typical seaside resort that thrived in the 60 and 70s before people travelled abroad for their holidays. Girvan is on the main arterial A77 with links to the town of Stranraer (main crossing point for goods and people from Northern Ireland), up to Glasgow/Edinburgh. The road at Flynn's changes from 2 way traffic at the traffic lights directly outside the site to a one-way system through the town going South. The North route brings the traffic back via the harbour area. It re-joins the 2-way system at the traffic lights outside Flynns (with Flynn’s being on the left). The area still has numerous caravan sites and guesthouses in the outlying areas and will attract seasonal trade. The area also has a community leisure centre, a harbour and a seafront play area which will attract families. Flynn's Boatyard looks in reasonably good condition as it just went through a 250k investment. It has a separate bar area and lounge area. The pub has a small bar area which could have two sets of booth tables which could seat up to four people, two round tables which could seat up to four people and one large poseur table which could seat up to eight people. There is a good-sized beer garden which faces west and will get the sun in the afternoon. It faces onto the river. It has no carpark, but there is a very large public car park about 30 yards from the pub. There is no private accommodation.
The Flynns Boatyard has the potential for live sports, a food offering, live music, pool, and pub teams. There is great potential at the pub to grow the business by; attracting holidaymakers/caravan revenue, to increase the food offering and maybe introduce Sunday lunches and to catch the high volume of traffic that passes the pub. The pub company is looking for an experienced local operator who knows the area. Having kitchen experience would be beneficial or a vision to hire a kitchen manager to make sure the food offer is fulfilled.
