A POPULAR vegan bar and restaurant in Glasgow’s City Centre will become a family friendly venue offering food to children and young people.

The Flying Duck, on Renfield Street, has had its licence extended by Glasgow City Council to serve a meal to youngsters provided they are accompanied by an adult.

Owners of the establishment, which runs as a café, bar and nightclub, appeared before Glasgow City Council’s licensing board.

Police Scotland, licensing standards officers and building control raised no objection with the application.

At the meeting a representative of The Fling Duck said: “The premises is a loud establishment with food.

“As an experiment they would like to serve food to children and young people. We have created a children’s menu and would allow them into the restaurant area until 9pm provided they are accompanied by an adult.”

Members then asked how children would be kept safe within.

The Flying Duck’s representative said: “No, we will still operate that as a but we would not allow children into that part of the bar.”

The application was granted.
