The pub, located within the iconic Eglington Toll building in Govanhill in Glasgow, has been providing locals with lunch, drinks and live entertainment for over 26 years.

Serving up a starter of homemade soup, followed by traditional favourites such as roast beef, macaroni cheese and Scotch pie and a dessert of ice cream and fruit jelly or creamed rice with fruit, this is one spot for anyone who loves a bargain. And with a turnover in excess of £350,000, that's a lot of people!

The Star Bar offers new owners the chance to step into a well established business with a good reputation in the city’s southside on a leasehold basis, which basically means the property is owned for a fixed period of time and a legal agreement with the landlord (sometimes known as the 'freeholder') is in place.

This has information on how many years the property is owned and ownership of the property returns to the landlord when the lease comes to an end. So while you might not actually own the building, you can still be pub landlord or landlady for the foreseeable future.

Known for cake making, experimental jam recipes, Champagne, whisky and gin drinking (and the inability to cook Gnocchi), Rosalind is the Food and Drink Editor and whisky writer for The Scotsman, as well as hosting Scran, The Scotsman's food and drink podcast.
