Brewer’s pub plans

Beer com­pany hopes to open Shore Ter­race unit

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page - BY SARAH WIL­LIAMSON

A CRAFT brew­ing com­pany could be­come one of the first to oc­cupy new units cre­ated at Dundee’s Wa­ter­front.

St An­drews Brew­ing Com­pany, based in the Fife town, is ap­ply­ing for a li­cence to open a pub and restau­rant in new re­tail units on Shore Ter­race, at the rear of the city’s Caird Hall.

The firm is set to have its ap­pli­ca­tion heard at a meet­ing next week.

And it could look at open­ing the new venue by sum­mer if the li­cens­ing board gives it the green light.

The coun­cil has spent more than £700,000 ren­o­vat­ing for­mer hous­ing of­fices and sub­di­vid­ing them into four re­tail units, fronting on to Slessor Gar­dens.

A spokesman for St An­drews Brew­ing Com­pany said the new venue would of­fer lo­cally-sourced pro­duce on its menu.

He told the Tele: “We are look­ing at a restau­rant/bar op­er­a­tion un­der the Caird Hall, where we plan to show­case the best of Scottish pro­duce such as beef, lamb, pork and game, seafood and shell­fish, craft brew­ing and dis­till­ing, as well as some of the new breed of ar­ti­san de­sign, fur­ni­ture and fab­ric busi­nesses we see grow­ing around us.

“It all de­pends on the premises se­cur­ing a li­cence at next week’s li­cens­ing board.”

The com­pany al­ready has a brew­pub in South Street, St An­drews, where it says it of­fers 18 taps of beer and cider and more than 30 rare malt whiskies.

It’s the lat­est re­tailer to con­sider in­vest­ment at the Wa­ter­front.

The Tele re­vealed yes­ter­day how Sains­bury’s was eye­ing up a new re­tail unit within Dundee’s un­der­con­struc­tion rail­way sta­tion, as it looks to open up a new store in the city.

When work on the Shore Ter­race units got un­der way, city coun­cil­lor Will Daw­son said they of­fered a “stun­ning out­look to the Wa­ter­front” for prospec­tive restau­rants and cafes.
