Scottish bar and restaurant operator, Buzzworks Holdings, is set to expand its presence in the East of Scotland with the purchase of The Bridge Inn in Linlithgow.
Buzzworks is set to launch its first venture in the East of Scotland when Scotts bar and restaurant in South Queensferry opens in September, and the acquisition of the Bridge Inn demonstrates its commitment to a strong East Coast presence.
The Linlithgow venue will be refurbished this year to extend and modernise the property. When finished, it will feature a bar, restaurant, private dining room and outdoor courtyard space, which Buzzworks will manage as part of its House collection.
Buzzworks currently operates five House venues namely the Tree House in Ayr, The Long House in Kilmarnock, The Mill House in Stewarton, The Corner House in Kilwinning and The Coach House in Bridge of Weir.
The company’s portfolio also includes Elliots in Prestwick, Lido venues in Prestwick and Troon, and Scotts in Troon, Largs and South Queensferry.
Colin Blair, Buzzworks Holdings Chairman, said: “Branching out from the west of Scotland is an ambitious move for us, but one we are really excited to develop. We can’t wait to open the doors of Scotts South Queensferry and then start work on our next project in Linlithgow.
“The Bridge Inn has a lot of history and character, which makes it a perfect addition to our House collection. It will be a stunning venue with a welcoming, relaxing atmosphere featuring our trademark contemporary twist. What’s more, we will be providing a number of excellent employment opportunities for the local area and beyond.”
