Student becomes the master

The Strath Tavern had been operated by the same owner since 2004

A FORMER employee of a pub in Fife is planning to utilise his five years of experience working in the business to grow it after purchasing it from his former bosses.

The Strath Tavern, in the village of Strathmiglo, at the foot of the Lomond Hills, opened in its current guise in 2004 and is said to have built up a good reputation with locals.

Described as a wet-led pub, the business, which comprises a bar and a 26-cover restaurant, is said to have benefited from an increasing annual turnover thanks to strong drinks sales.

The employee turned owner is said to have a plan to build on the pub’s existing success with a refurbishment of the building, which is set to get underway.

The business was sold via property firm Bruce & Co; the final sale price was not disclosed.
