Cru Holdings has taken over The White House on Inverness’ Union Street, adding to its stable of bars and restaurants in the north of Scotland.
The acquisition comes with an extension of the property’s tenancy by 20 years. Fifteen jobs will also be retained in the Highland hospitality industry as a result of the deal.
It joins six other bars and restaurants in the Cru Holdings group.
Director Ken Loades said: “When the opportunity presented itself to add The White House to the Cru Holdings family, we knew it was the right move. Its reputation for incredible cocktails and delicious food aligns perfectly with everything we strive to achieve in our venues.
“We’d like to reassure customers that from the moment we take over, it’s business as usual. All bookings will be honoured, and you’ll still receive the same high quality of service you’ve come to expect at The White House. All Cru Holdings vouchers will also be valid for The White House – and all existing White House vouchers will be extended to include all Cru Holdings bars and restaurants.”
He added: “We’re proud to support the Highland hospitality industry and help popular venues like The White House stay open for many years to come.
“We’re committed to ensuring the hospitality industry thrives in the region, by guaranteeing a high quality of service across all our venues and ensuring the industry is an attractive place to work by offering benefits like the Real Living Wage.”
