The pub is owned by mother and daughter team Adrienne Greenaway and Victoria Ashgar, who have run the pub for 19 years.
As part of the refurbishment, outside work has updated the seventies-style building with a new look and installed large windows to “bring light flooding into the pub”.
A disused concrete courtyard has been turned into a 120-seater garden with murals by Kirkshaws artist Robert Boyle plus new decking, planting, heating and festoon lighting. A new marquee will also provide covered space for 60 customers.
The interior of The Princess has been upgraded with a contemporary design, self-contained function space, new toilets and an audiovisual system for screening sports.
As part of the relaunch, the pair have also revamped the kitchen and are introducing food focused on “traditional pub favourites” such as pies and burgers along with a children’s menu. A new drinks range will feature premium beers, wines and spirits as well as coffee and hot drinks.
Mick Howard, operations director for Star Pubs and Bar, Scotland, said: “Victoria and Adrienne are fantastic licensees who’ve made The Princess a real heart of local life; we’re delighted to have supported them with this refurbishment.
“They’ve thought of everyone in the community and are giving people lots more reasons to visit. Whether residents are after a morning coffee, a family meal or a great night out, they’ll be able to stay local and find it at The Princess.”
