CASK ale is to be a major part of the offer at a new JD Wetherspoon pub in Dunfermline.
The pub giant, which has more than 50 outlets in Scotland, was due to open The Guildhall and Linen Exchange in the Fife town as this section of SLTN went to press.
The new venue is located on the site of a former police station, sheriff court and job centre, which was on Scotland’s building’s at risk register.
Wetherspoon has spent a claimed £1.1 million revamping the 19th century building to create a bar with wheelchair access, pavement cafe area to the front of the premises and a balcony to the side.
Photos, local history and information boards relating to the history and characters of the area have been displayed in the pub, as well as paintings by local artist Mary Ramage.
Specialising in cask ales from local and regional brewers, The Guildhall and Linen Exchange is open from 8am until midnight from Sunday to Thursday and until 1am on Friday and Saturday; food is served every day until 10pm.
Manager Andrew McLennan, who previously worked at Wetherspoon’s The Blacksmith’s Forge pub in Dalkeith, said: “Myself and my team are looking forward to welcoming customers into the pub and we are confident that it will be a great addition to Dunfermline’s community.”
