A MUCH-LOVED Kilwinning pub is up for sale.

The owners of the Victoria Bar in Howgate announced they have put the popular boozer up for sale - asking for offers of over £220,000.

'The Vic' as it is popularly known, is the latest Kilwinning pub to go on the market after family run The Alton and The Cosy Corner both went up for sale in recent months.

Owner Margaret Bradford has owned the pub for more than 25 years but been serving pints behind the bar for closer to 30 years.

Daughter Martha says her mum is selling up to concentrate on spending time with her children and grandchildren.

Daughter Martha said: "This wee pub has been a part of all our lives for so long. So many memories have been created that have literally lasted a lifetime but all good things come to an end and my parents have decide to focus on them and sell the pub!

"Mum has worked her backside off over the years she’s missed out on family time with her own kids and Grandkids, she’s been a councillor, a confident a social worker but most importantly she’s been a friend to many but there comes at time when you need to put yourself first and focus on your family and your health."
