Scottish-based bar and restaurant operator Buzzworks Holdings has bought independent hospitality business Herringbone.

The move sees the purchase of the Herringbone’s two restaurants – one located within Edinburgh’s Goldenacre and the other by the coast in North Berwick – as well as third at 3 Royal Terrance Gardens in Edinburgh, which is currently under construction.

It will take Buzzworks’ portfolio up to 17 site, with five venues now on the east coast of Scotland.

The Herringbone team will stay in position at their respective venues, with a further 20 jobs to be created at the new Edinburgh venue, which is due to open in the summer.

“Branching out the business to the east coast has been an exciting journey so far, with two fantastic venues in Scotts South Queensferry and The Bridge Inn Linlithgow already in place,” says Buzzworks Holdings managing director Kenny Blair.

“We see the addition of Herringbone to our portfolio as the perfect fit, due to our commitment to creating fabulous venues that offer delicious food, great drinks and outstanding service – which Herringbone already provides to its customers on a daily basis.

“This is another great step forward in our continued growth strategy as we branch out from the west of Scotland. The venues will not only continue to provide an excellent bar and food experience to complement the area, but with a further 20 jobs being created, it’s an ideal opportunity for those keen to work for a forward-thinking hospitality operator that provides both industry leading training and benefits for its team.”

Ash Bairstow, managing director at Herringbone, says “We’re delighted to be joining the Buzzworks family and it is an exciting new chapter in our story.

“Joining Buzzworks will allow the team to develop further as we expand the Herringbone brand with a third venue this year and more to come and we’re proud to become part of such a forward thinking, people focused business like Buzzworks.”

Alongside the Herringbone acquisition, Buzzworks operates 14 venues including Scotts in Troon, Largs and South Queensferry, Vic’s & The Vine in Prestwick, Lido venues in Prestwick and Troon, The Tree House in Ayr, The Long House and The Duke in Kilmarnock, The Mill House in Stewarton, The Corner House in Kilwinning, The Coach House in Bridge of Weir, The Bridge Inn in Linlithgow and its newest venue, The Fox, Troon.
