The Seaglass Inn in Port Seton, has reopened following a £425,000 refurbishment by Star Pubs and Bars, it will be run by mother and daughter team Christine O’Brien and Sarah Couch.
The overhaul has given the pub a “stylish” contemporary look, created an outdoor area for alfresco eating and drinking, and added a kitchen. A new drinks selection ranging from barista coffee to craft beer and cocktails has been introduced, as well as freshly prepared food. Ingredients are locally sourced, and dishes include pub classics such as home-made steak pie as well as more unusual options such as pan-fried sea bass with salsa.
O’Brien, said: “The pub looks beautiful, and they can’t believe the transformation. They love the new design and ambience and having a family-friendly pub that caters for all in Port Seton.
“We’re seeing a real mix of ages and people who never visited the pub before: groups of ladies for prosecco; guys watching football and families enjoying a meal out. The community has backed us right from the early planning stages, and we’re very grateful for their support.”
Jeremy Williams, area manager, Star Pubs and Bars, added: “We’re delighted that the Seaglass Inn has been so well received and is proving a popular meeting place for the whole community and those from further afield. Christine and Sarah are passionate about giving Port Seton a pub it can be proud of, and we wish them every success.”
The Seaglass Inn’s refurbishment is part of Star Pubs and Bars’ £4m investment programme for Scotland’s pubs in 2019.
