The bar at The Ploughman has re-opened following a substantial five-figure refurbishment.
Following a four-week fit-out, the Peterculter bar has been modernised and upgraded while still retaining its traditional Scottish feel.
Simon Cruickshank, co-owner of the popular bar and restaurant, said: “We’re delighted with the new look. We promised to invest in the business and that’s what we are doing.
“We’re confident the refurbishment of the bar area will go down well with existing customers and attract new ones. Retaining a warm and welcoming feel has been important.”
The bar, which can hold around 60 people, has taken the opportunity to install a state-of-the-art 4k TV screen system which will allow the multiple showing of the big sporting action on Sky Sports and BT Sport.
The Ploughman has car parking for around 40 vehicles and has plans to expand its outdoor seating area later in the year, subject to planning permission.
Simon and Alistair Dornan, a successful oil and gas executive, acquired The Ploughman at the start of the year. The co-owners also plan to revamp the restaurant after the new bar gets bedded in.
