Work has began on a £275,000 refurbishment of a Partick pub.

The Thornwood pub on Dumbarton Road, owned by the same people behind the Admiral bar, is undergoing a transformation.

As one of the first art deco pubs in Glasgow, the work will see its features including panelling, cornicing and the pub's wooden bar with brass fittings, all restored.

Hidden features such as the building's brickwork and sandstone will be exposed for the first time.

License variations are being sought to enable families with children to use The Thornwood too and a new kitchen is being installed to introduce food.

The pub is scheduled to reopen in the second half of March, creating 13 new jobs.

Marc Ferrier, who is also a co owner of the iconic Admiral bar on Waterloo Street and is joined in the venture by business partner Kenny Hamilton.

Marc said: "Glasgow is a city of doers and you really see that in its pub and bar scene, which is one of the best and most creative in Europe and attracts dynamic operators and talented staff.

"I feel fortunate to have found a second pub with so much potential here.

"We want to give The Thornwood a new lease of life and make it somewhere that residents feel proud to have in their neighbourhood. There’s not a traditional pub serving food in the area and our aim is to fill that gap.”

Brian Davidson, Star Pubs & Bars operations director for Scotland, adds: "Marc has an outstanding reputation in the city’s pub trade and we feel fortunate to be

working with him. The Admiral is a much-loved Glasgow institution and I’ve every confidence that The Thornwood will be a similar success.”
