The Plough constellation is also known as The Big Dipper and the new-look bar at The Ploughman in Peterculter is hopefully set for anything but a big dip after a four-week refurbishment and ‘ a substantial five-figure
Co-owner Simon Cruickshank said, “We’re delighted with the new look. We promised to invest in the business and that’s what we are doing.
“We’re confident the refurbishment of the bar area will go down well with existing customers and attract new ones. Retaining a warm and welcoming feel has been important.”
The bar owners have taken the opportunity to install a state-of-the-art 4k TV screen system in the 60-capacity bar. In addition, the lounge and restaurant, which has 120 covers, is looking to add a chef, kitchen porters and waiting staff to its team.
The Ploughman is also hoping to expand its outdoor seating area later in the year, subject to planning permission.
Simon Cruickshank and Alistair Dornan, an oil and gas executive, acquired The Ploughman at the start of the year. The co-owners also
plan to revamp the restaurant after the new bar gets bedded in. Both Simon and Alistair live near The Ploughman.
