Star Pubs & Bars has started work on a £490K refurbishment of The Welcome Inn on Rannoch Road in Letham, Perth, and local resident, experienced licensee and chef Debbie Little, is taking on the pub which is due to open in November.
The project will extend the front of the pub, paint the building and add new signage and lighting. A sheltered café-style terrace will be created to the side with seating for more than 50. Inside, the bar’s being extended and a kitchen installed.
Said Debbie, “I’ve always wanted a pub of my own and I’m excited The Welcome Inn will be my first – it’s got so much potential. With no other pub within a mile and half, Letham has been crying out for a great local that’s a hub of the community. My aim is to fill that gap. The plans are fantastic and will provide the
kind of quality people have had to go into Perth to find on their doorsteps. The
Welcome Inn will be like a new pub when it reopens and cater for everyone and all occasions – whether it’s morning coffee, a family lunch or a brilliant night out.”
