The Honest Pub Co owned by Ian McAnally and Craig McLaughlin has celebrated its first six months at the Kings Arms in Fenwick by opening a Chippy for villagers. Having spent £40k with Star Pubs & Bars refurbishing the pub, the enterprising duo have added a fish and chip shop to the business.
The new venture meets a gap in the market for take away food in the village saving residents a seven mile round trip to Kilmarnock. It will also stock grocery basics such as a bread and milk to help villagers out when Fenwick’s only shop is closed.
The Honest Pub Co has invested £10k in top of the range kitchen equipment to ensure they serve an authentic product.
The takeaway has its own serving hatch at the back of the pub complete with an unlicensed seating area. The launch coincides with the introduction of a new fish menu at the pub. Star Pubs & Bars managing director Lawson Mountstevens said, “It’s great to have been able to support the Honest Pub Co in their transformation of the Kings Arms. This latest development adds another valuable income stream to their business. They have done a brilliant job, proving again the enduring popularity of a well-run and invested great traditional pub.”
