Ayr eatery set to turn over new leaf

Buzzworks completes root and branch refurb of The Tree House

Buzzworks launched The Coach House in Bridge of Weir in July

AN Ayr restaurant is preparing to reopen after a major refurbishment carried out by its owner, Buzzworks Holdings.

One of the bar and restaurant group’s five venues under its House brand, The Tree House on Ayr’s Sandgate will be relaunched at the end of this month following the five-week revamp.

Buzzworks said the £400,000 refurbishment will bring the venue in line with its sister outlets: The Coach House in Bridge of Weir, which opened earlier this year; The Corner House in Kilwinning; The Mill House in Stewarton; and The Long House in Kilmarnock.

The venue’s interior is said to have been completely transformed with a contemporary design, incorporating “natural materials and light modern tones”; while its capacity has been increased to 100 covers with the addition of booth seating and a private dining area that can accommodate up to 20 guests. To coincide with the refurbishment, The Tree House’s food and drink offer has been refreshed to incorporate the House venues’ “trademark of simple dishes with big flavours”, alongside a range of craft gins and beers, wines and cocktails.

Colin Blair, chairman of Buzzworks, said: “After ten years of trading, we believe that now is the time to reinvest and modernise The Tree House as part of our wider growth strategy.

“It’s a fantastic building and we will retain elements of its original concept including the external terrace, and this investment will allow us to enhance the experience we offer to visitors.

“We want to give Ayr town centre and the local community a venue to enjoy and be proud of, with all of our changes being made with our customers in mind.”

In addition to the five House venues, Buzzworks operates Lido outlets in Troon and Prestwick, Scotts venues in Troon and Largs and Elliots in Prestwick.
