SCOTTS SET TO OPEN IN SOUTH QUEENSFERRY AS BUZZWORKS EXPANDS EAST

May 3rd, 2017 | Posted in: Bar News,News

Buzzworks Holdings is set to open its flagship restaurant Scotts at Port Edgar Marina, South Queensferry, at the end of this year. It’s the group’s first venture East, and it’s the third marina restaurant for the company, who also operate Scotts at Troon and Largs marina’s.

Scotts has built up an enviable reputation over the past twelve years, and now it will bring its style of relaxed all day dining and drinking to the recently refurbished marina.

Kenny Blair, Buzzworks Holdings MD, said,  “This is another ambitious step forward in our continued growth strategy as we branch out from the west of Scotland. The venue will not only bring a new dining experience to the area, but an opportunity for the local community to work with a company ranked 40th within The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For.

“Buzzworks prides itself on the delicious food, serious cocktails and superb service we provide to customers, so it’s an exciting time for the business as we extend our portfolio to the east coast and take Scotts to South Queensferry. We can’t wait to begin fitting out the property.”

The new seafront venue will also complement the company’s collection of eight other venues including Elliotts in Prestwick, Lido venues in Prestwick and Troon, The Treehouse in Ayr, The Longhouse in Kilmarnock, The Mill House in Stewarton, The Corner House in Kilwinning and newest venue The Coach House in Bridge of Weir.

The creation of the restaurant also marks a milestone for operators Port Edgar Holdings, who took over the running of Port Edgar Marina from City of Edinburgh Council in April 2014.  The Council’s Edinburgh Leisure division had been running the marina since 1998.

Since taking over the facility, Port Edgar Holdings has been redeveloping the site, including refurbishing ancillary buildings, demolishing derelict structures to create more parking spaces, and dredging the harbour so it can take larger vessels and make the marina less dependent on the tide.

Russell Aitken, managing director at Port Edgar Marina, said, “Port Edgar has a rich and varied history and we’re making sure that it has an exciting future ahead of it.  We’re delighted that Buzzworks has chosen to locate its next restaurant at the marina, where diners will be able to enjoy quality food with stunning views of the Forth’s three bridges.”
