We’re opening soon! We’ve missed you a lot and can’t wait to reopen our doors and welcome you again.

We have everything in hand to make your experience just the way we know you like it but there have been changes.

We have worked incredibly hard to put in place all the safety measures you expect to keep you and our staff safe during your visit.

At the heart of everything we undertake within our venues, we work within the firm parameters of the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 and the five Licensing Objectives within that Act, including, “the prevention of crime” and “protecting and improving public health”. We ask you, our customers and patrons to support us in our duty to protect you and our staff.

But remember, you are here to enjoy yourself!

Following the publishing of the guidance for outdoor and indoor hospitality on July 2nd, from 6th July our outdoor terraces at Cold Town House, McLarens on the Corner, Church on the Hill,. The Meadowpark and The Saint will be open (weather dependant!) and from 17th July, Kyloe will be ready to welcome you back indoors. The other venues detailed above will also be open for indoor hospitaltyi following all Government Guidance. From there, we will take it slowly, only opening when it’s the right time and safe to do so – we will keep you posted.
