Colin Blair, Buzzworks Holdings Chairman

RENOVATION works at The Bridge Inn in Linlithgow are quickly progressing ahead of its eagerly-anticipated re-opening in early summer 2020, under the operation of Buzzworks Holdings.

The venue will showcase Buzzworks unique blend of food, drink and style providing a welcomed boost to Linlithgow’s leisure offering and its redevelopment has created 35 jobs locally. It will feature a bar, restaurant, private dining room and outdoor courtyard space, which Buzzworks will manage as part of its House collection.

Buzzworks is one of Scotland’s leading hospitality businesses and currently operates twelve venues. The Bridge Inn in Linlithgow will be the groups’ second East Coast premises following the launch of Scotts bar and restaurant in South Queensferry in 2018.

The Bridge Inn, which was vacant at the point of sale to Buzzworks, was originally a coaching inn and dates back to 1660. Renovation works represented significant investment and involved restoring the historic building back to basics in order to modernise and install a first-class facility that the town can be proud of – complementing its original character.

Celebrating Buzzworks’ passion for great food and hospitality, its all-day dining experience provides an elevated food offering and an impressive selection of wine, beers and cocktails.

Colin Blair, Buzzworks Holdings Chairman, said: “We’re committed to developing a presence in the East Coast and after launching Scotts at Port Edgar Marina, South Queensferry in late 2018, we can’t wait to open the doors of The Bridge Inn in Linlithgow.

“It’s been great to breathe new life into this historic building and create a contemporary venue with a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. We believe The Bridge Inn is a fantastic addition to our growing portfolio and will be a great asset to the Linlithgow community.”

Buzzworks Holdings currently manages twelve prestigious venues including Scotts in Troon, Largs and South Queensferry, Vic’s & The Vine in Prestwick, Lido venues in Prestwick and Troon, The Tree House in Ayr, The Long House and Duke in Kilmarnock, The Mill House in Stewarton, The Corner House in Kilwinning and The Coach House in Bridge of Weir.
