Weston-super-Mare’s best loved biker bar has been sold – to a local businessman.

Scally’s, run by Dawn Coupe and partner Kev for the last 27 years, finally closed its doors in November when the third Government lockdown came into force.

The pub, known for its live music nights and attracting top acts including Iron Maiden drummer Nico McBrain, and The Kaiser Chiefs has now been sold to Vas Kimitiri who owns Bare Grills Smokehouse and other businesses in the seaside resort.

Work is currently taking place to strip out the pub, which was built in the 1930’s.

The sale went through at the end of last month, with Dawn and Kevin retiring to their canal boat the Grumpy River Pig in Gloucestershire.

Mr Kimitri said Scally’s will remain as a bar with a new food offering.

Mr Kimitri said: “We are very pleased to add Scally’s to our portfolio.

“The venue will remain closed to undergo a vast refurbishment, bringing it in line with today’s market.

“It will remain as a bar whilst incorporating a new food offering in a cool and casual environment.”

It is not yet known when the bar will re-open.

The deal was handled by Nick Calfe of Christie and Co.

Dawn and Kev said: “We are thrilled to have completed on the sale of Scally’s.

“Thank you, Nick Calfe and Christie & Co for helping find the right buyer, it has helped us move on to the next chapter of our lives and we couldn’t have done it without you.

“We wish the new owners the best of luck and look forward to seeing their plans for the venue come to life.”

Scally’s was sold on a freehold basis of an asking price of £325,000.

Nicholas Calfe, Director in Christie & Co’s Hospitality team handled the sale and comments, “It was a pleasure acting for Dawn and Kevin and I am so pleased we were able to secure a cash purchaser in these difficult times to ensure they enjoy their retirement and after so many years in the trade.

“They probably need a rest.”
