A POPULAR Glasgow pub has re-opened ten months after it went up in flames.

The Dug N Duck, in Millerston, is now welcoming customers after being forced to shut down due to being badly damaged by a fire last November. 

After the completion of an investigation into the cause of the fire, it was revealed that an electrical fault in the kitchen was the source of the flames.

Following that, a renovation plan was put in place to restore the pub which would see a new roof be installed, a top-to-toe redecoration inside and out and new furniture, to give it a more modern look.

Currently under temporary management whilst new operators are sought, the focus for Star Pubs & Bars is to give the community back their much-loved local as soon as possible.

Matt Dyson, Star Pubs & Bars Regional Operations Director, said: “It’s great to be reopening The Dug N Duck and giving the community somewhere to come together again to socialise as well as to celebrate events like Hallowe'en and Christmas.

"Last year sadly Christmas festivities were cancelled, so this year there’s even more reason to celebrate.

“The prominent location, renovation and the business model on offer will, I am sure, attract interest, but we really want locals to get involved and spread the word to help us find their new long-term landlord.

"That would be a great end to the year for the community."

Plans for the family-friendly pub include a menu of affordable pub classics including a children’s menu, live entertainment, live sports and pub games like pool, and darts.

The pub consists of a main bar and a separate restaurant area which together provide seating for 60.

Outside the beer garden has seating for a further 20 and there’s parking for six cars.

A specialist catering kitchen will enable the pub to offer popular pub classics whilst the installation of state-of-the-art dispense technology will deliver draft beer and cider quality and consistency.

Matt added: "I’d like to say thank you to the local fire brigade for their help saving the building, enabling us to hand back a working pub to the community today.”
