The sun rises in the east and Buzzworks Holdings is also on the rise in the east of Scotland after confirming the purchase of The Bridge Inn in Linlithgow. The redevelopment will represent a £750,000 investment and create 40 jobs in the local area and is due to open next year. The Bridge Inn, which was vacant at the point of sale, was originally a coaching inn and dates back to 1660 and the refurbishment work is due to start later this year which will include extending and modernising the current property. When finished, it will feature a bar, restaurant, private dining room and outdoor courtyard space, which Buzzworks will manage as part of its House collection. Colin Blair, (right) Buzzworks Holdings Chairman, said, “Branching out from the west of Scotland is an ambitious move for us, but one we are really excited to develop. We can’t wait to open the doors of Scotts South Queensferry and then start work on our next project in Linlithgow. “The Bridge Inn has a lot of history and character, which makes it a perfect addition to our House collection. It will be a stunning venue with a welcoming, relaxing atmosphere featuring our trademark contemporary twist. What’s more, we will be providing a number of excellent employment opportunities for the local area and beyond.” Buzzworks’ first venture in the east of Scotland is Scotts bar and restaurant at Port Edgar Marina, South Queensferry, which will open in the next few weeks.
