Well-Known Swansea Pub Building Goes On The Market
Whether it was for a pint, a chat or a game of pool, many thousands of you will have been there over the years.
Now Swansea Council is selling the former Mountain Dew Inn pub building on Terrace Road as it looks to reinvest proceeds back into council services.
The building, just up the hill from the University of Wales Trinity Saint David campus in Mount Pleasant, has been deemed surplus to requirements, having been surrendered to the council by its former brewery tenant.
CLC Chartered Surveyors, on Walter Road, are inviting offers in the building on the council’s behalf.
Cllr Rob Stewart, Swansea Council Leader, said: “The Mountain Dew Inn was a well-known pub for many years that will be familiar to many thousands of students, as well as residents in the Mount Pleasant, Mayhill and Townhill communities.
“But times change and the building, which has recently returned to council ownership, is now surplus to requirements. The building’s sale will benefit the nearby area by bringing an empty property back into use, while also benefitting residents across the city because proceeds from its sale will be reinvested back into council services.
“Interest has already been significant, so I’d encourage anyone interested in the building to contact CLC Chartered Surveyors as soon as possible.
“Over the last five years, £19m has been generated by the sale of council land and property. This is another example of the council making best use of our estate.”
CLC Chartered Surveyors can be reached on 01792 524452.
The council has also put the former Swansea Jack pub building on the market, which will be sold at auction on March 16. Interested parties should contact Paul Fosh Auctioneers on 01633 254044.
“Our strategic estates team is also working on a number of other land and property deals that should be concluded over coming months,” said Cllr Stewart. “This shows the council is determined to lead from the front to help safeguard as many services for our residents as possible.”
