The Station House pub reopens after refurb

The refurb has seen the introduction of new leather bench seating, wood panelling, and lighting, with further plans to refurbish the rest of the pub in the new year.

The Station House pub in Annan, Scotland, has undergone a refurbishment project as part of a drive to host more events at the venue.

As part of the refurbishment, the pub has introduced new leather bench seating, wood panelling and lighting to “refresh its interiors”.

The work was completed in less than a week, with the new look room welcoming its first visitors within a couple of hours of completion.

Ian Murray, who runs The Station House with his wife Hannah, called in design and build specialists, Eco Projects to carry out the work, which was completed in collaboration with Ghyll House Upholstery, part of its parent company Eco Group.

While Eco Projects undertook the joinery and flooring work, Ghyll House created four new booths, including eight benches each seating for up to eight people, and reupholstered 10 reclaimed chairs in matching brown and green leather coverings.

Additionally, David White Electrical from Gretna and Maxwell’s Decorating from Annan worked on the recent refurbishment inside the pub.

The pub’s owners also refurbished its large beer garden during lockdown last year, creating seating for up to 150 people, installing large screen TVs for showing live sport, and a stage for hosting live bands and discos during the summer months.

Murray said: “We’re absolutely over the moon with the end result, which is just what we wanted. Both Ryan Fieldston from Eco Projects and Joe McAlpine from Ghyll House Upholstery were brilliant to work with and understood exactly what we wanted, and delivered accordingly.

“They did the job quickly and efficiently which meant the work could be done with minimum disruption to the business. We’ve got events such as live bands, disco nights, and karaoke evenings planned during the run-up to Christmas and over the festive period, and eventually we’d like to start serving food.”

He added: “The new space is exactly what we need, and we’re planning to extend the refurbishment to the rest of the pub in the New Year.”
