Growler will be new pub

Old bank set for con­ver­sion

Ayrshire Post - - NEWS - Sarah Hil­ley

A t r e n d y n ew spe­cial­ity beer pub is to open in an old Ayr bank.

The aban­doned Royal Bank of Scot­land will be home to the night spot called The Growler.

The ven­ture, which boasts a big gar­den, is the lat­est new boozer to wake up the town’s slum­ber­ing night trade.

A state­ment from the Growler de­scribes it as a “tap­room, canteen and gar­den.”

It said the venue will sell “loads of dif­fer­ent beers on tap from all over the planet in pretty cool sur­round­ings.”

It added: “Great easy food, cock­tails, whiskies and rums and if the sun shines you can have all this - out­side in our gar­den.

“Cool tunes as al­ways and open late, what’s not to like.”

The MacPher­son Fam­ily Part­ner­ship have ap­plied for a premises li­cence for the venue on 2 Beres­ford Ter­race.

Mem­bers of the Fort Seafield and Wal­lace­town Com­mu­nity Coun­cil wel­comed the ap­pli­ca­tion at the most re­cent meet­ing. The meet­ing heard the new busi­ness would re­gen­er­ate the lo­cal econ­omy with jobs.

Chair Nor­man McLean said it was a brave ven­ture be­cause of the num­ber of pubs clos­ing down.

But if the Growler gets the go- ahead from South Ayr­shire Coun­cil it will join a string of new open­ings in Ayr.

En­tre­pre­neur Vinny Roarty has opened two bars in the town - the New­mar­ket and The Brook­lyn Cafe.

And Cameron’s bar has re­placed the old McCabe’s on Fullar­ton Street.

Floun­der­ing Club de Mar, which sud­denly shut, has been taken over by the own­ers of Furys night­club.

The name will be changed and a re­fur­bish­ment is tak­ing place.

It is hoped the new look Arthur Street club will open be­fore the fes­tive sea­son.

Brave ven­ture McLean Nor­man
