Buzzworks Holdings is investing £400,000 in a refurbishment of one of its sites in the west of Scotland, leading to the creation of more jobs.

Treehouse, which opened in Ayr nearly 10 years ago, is being modernised to bring it in line with the rest of the group’s bar-restaurants that operate under the House brand.

It is due to be relaunched at the end of November as The Tree House, with recruitment under way for 10 new roles. A range of positions is available across the front-of-house, management and kitchen teams.

It follows Buzzworks’ investment in other House bar-restaurants such as The Coach House which opened in Bridge of Weir in Renfrewshire earlier this year (pictured).

The interior is being completely transformed with a contemporary design incorporating natural materials and light modern tones, complementing the existing characteristics of the building.

The restaurant’s capacity will increase to 100 covers, with the addition of stylish booth seating and an exclusive private dining area for up to 20 guests.

The food and drink offering will be enhanced, incorporating the House trademark of simple dishes with big flavours, supported by a new open kitchen.

It will have a stylish modern bar, stocked with spirits, including craft gins, for making high-quality cocktails as well as beers and a selection of wines.

Buzzworks Holdings chairman Colin Blair said: “After 10 years of trading, we believe that now is the time to reinvest and modernise The Tree House as part of our wider growth strategy.

“It’s a fantastic building and we will retain elements of its original concept including the external terrace, and this investment will allow us to enhance the experience we offer to visitors.

“We want to give Ayr town centre and the local community a venue to enjoy and be proud of, with all of our changes being made with our customers in mind. We look forward to welcoming guests to our stylish new Tree House in time for Christmas.”
