LICENSEES are being invited to breathe new life into a historic Port Glasgow pub.
The Prince of Wales, reputedly the oldest bar in the town, has lain empty since 2015.
Council bosses ended the previous tenancy in a dispute over unpaid rent while the licensee claimed he withheld money because the property wasn’t watertight.
The pub dates back to 1912.
Two businessmen showed an initial interest in taking the premises over last year but no deal was reached.
A spokesman for Inverclyde Council said: “The former Prince of Wales pub is an important building in Port Glasgow.  The property is held within the Common Good and the council is actively marketing it to the commercial sector.  The building already benefits from a prominent location.
“We have been working to make it an ever more attractive business proposition by refurbishing the interior, although any future tenant will have to do further upgrading/fitting out work to match their specific requirements. ”
Anyone interested should call 715581.
