Buzzworks’ returning South Queensferry Marina venue as dog friendly haven

Andressa Garcia, general manager at Scotts South Queensferry

LEADING hospitality group Buzzworks Holdings has announced the reopening of its dog-friendly summer hotspot, Outboard, complete with a doggy food menu and delicious treats.

Situated beside the group’s renowned Scotts Bar & Restaurant at Port Edgar Marina, Outboard has now become a pup haven for customers in South Queensferry and beyond.

Following its hugely anticipated launch in July last year, Outboard is thrilled to announce a host of new additions to its dog-friendly offerings, with beautiful views against the backdrop of the Three Bridges.

The timing is perfect as Outboard has also obtained a new drinks license, allowing it to serve a delightful fusion of crafted cocktails, curated wine selections, and refreshing beer options throughout the summer to pup parents too.

Andressa Garcia, general manager at Scotts South Queensferry, said: “We’re very excited to once again welcome guests to our much-loved Outboard by Scotts venue at Port Edgar Marina.

“Our team has put in tremendous effort to bring a diverse selection of new amenities, including a selection of beverages that perfectly complement our exceptional dining experience.

“Alongside a fantastic menu and drinks offering for customers there will be plenty of choice for four-legged friends visiting Outboard too, and we are excited to offer a range of amenities to make their experience as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.”

To ensure pets have their own delicious meal options, Outboard is providing a range of tasty choices for its four-legged guests, including biscuits, sausages, sweet treats – including Jude’s ice cream for dogs – and puppuccinos.

And with the venue’s picturesque views, guests will be encouraged to share snaps of their adorable pets before or after their meal with the hashtag #DogsofBuzzworks, tagging Outboard’s Instagram account, @outboard_southqueensferry.

Andressa added: “With our delicious doggy food menu and stunning backdrop, we hope to provide a unique and memorable experience for both pets and their owners.”

With all-day eating and drinking in laid-back surroundings every Wednesday to Sunday from 9am, there will, of course, be an extensive menu for humans – featuring everything from breakfast roles to tempting traybakes, milkshakes, and iced coffees to traditional fish & chips, tempura, and lighter bowls, alongside weekly specials created by Buzzworks’ talented team of chefs.

Andressa continued: “We’re very excited to once again welcome guests to our much-loved Outboard by Scotts venue at Port Edgar Marina. With lots planned for summer 2023 including extended opening hours and a more extensive food and drinks menu for our customers, Outboard provides the perfect coastal getaway, just in time for the warmer weather.

“Since Outboard opened its doors last summer, Outboard has been given some additional TLC, with extended outdoor seating added for alfresco dining alongside a drinks license, allowing us to provide the perfect service in the sunshine.

“So, whether you’re looking for an al fresco breakfast with spectacular views at our fully covered outdoor area, a tipple with your pet, or some lunch and cocktails with friends – there are plenty of delicious options for guests and visitors alike to look forward to this summer.”
