Buzzworks’ Scotts bar and restaurant at Port Edgar Marina in South Queensferry is near to completion.
The venue is Buzzworks Holdings’ eleventh addition to its growing portfolio and first on Scotland’s East Coast. Situated against the stunning backdrop of the Three Bridges and Firth of Forth, Scotts is expected to open its doors later this summer.
Several milestones in the building works have now been reached with the interior structure now split and the addition of a second floor and external entrance staircase now fitted. The boat shed façade now boasts a wall of windows which will provide spectacular views for guests and diners.
Buzzworks and its team of designers have been sourcing an eclectic mix of natural, authentic and reclaimed materials for the interior of the venue. This is in line with the groups aim for all of its venues to have a more natural look – this is visible in The Coach House which Buzzworks launched in Bridge of Weir, Renfrewshire last summer.
The fish tank walls that have become a staple of Buzzworks’ Scotts restaurants in Troon and Largs will take a new style in South Queensferry. There will be a striking seafood display set into the main bar where chefs can prepare dishes from the new oyster bar menu directly in front of guests.
Kenny Blair, Buzzworks Holdings MD, said: “It’s been a busy few months, but our new Scotts restaurant is rapidly taking shape. We pride ourselves in creating venues that provide delicious food, superb cocktails and outstanding service and Scotts South Queensferry will not disappoint.
“Launching our first venue in the East is a major milestone for us and a key step on our overall growth strategy. We look forward to making the final touches and opening our doors soon in the coming weeks.”
