MULTIPLE operator Buzzworks Holdings has opened the doors of its first restaurant outwith its Ayrshire heartland.

The Coach House opened in Bridge of Weir last week (July 14) following a £1 million investment in the site, which formerly housed Archies Lounge Bar & Kitchen.

The Renfrewshire restaurant is said to provide “an all-day dining experience with a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, offering simple dishes with big flavours”.

It includes a private dining area for functions.

Kenny Blair, Buzzworks Holdings’ managing director, said “it’s an exciting time for us and the brand as we branch out from our home in Ayrshire”.

“We are really looking forward to being part of the Bridge of Weir community and bringing our modern take on a traditional bar and restaurant to the town,” he said.

Blair described the new Bridge of Weir venue as “a fantastic addition to our portfolio and we look forward to welcoming new diners as well as Buzzworks regulars”.

The Coach House is the group’s tenth outlet, and the fifth to operate under its House brand; it joins nine sites across Ayrshire, including Scotts in Troon and Largs, Elliots in Prestwick, Lido venues in Prestwick and Troon, The Treehouse in Ayr, The Longhouse in Kilmarnock, The Mill House in Stewarton and The Corner House in Kilwinning.

Buzzworks Holdings has also outlined further investment plans for this year, which include a move to the east of Scotland.

The group will bring its flagship restaurant brand, Scotts, to Port Edgar Marina in South Queensferry, near Edinburgh.

The site, which is currently in development, will open later this year.
