A Glasgow bar has reopened after a quarter of a million-pound investment from a pub giant.

Finlay's in Shawlands closed in July with plans to open under a new name with a fresh new look.

Now known as The Millwood, the venue welcomed punters through the doors for a grand opening night on Friday, August 18.

It comes following a £250,000 investment from pub group Admiral Taverns - their biggest to date in Scotland.

While the pub has been given a new lease of life, new licensee Jacqueline Kyle has made sure to retain the pub's original features while enhancing the look with modern furniture and fixtures.

Jacqueline said: “It really is such an honour to take over The Millwood and to be a part of this refurbishment.

"I know how much this pub means to the community and I am delighted to have been able to reunite them with it.

"Opening night was fantastic, meeting so many new faces and I can’t wait to see what the future holds."

Jacqueline is looking forward to introducing a new cocktail menu, which will include a menu of classic favourites such as martinis, cosmopolitans, and White Russians.

Customers will also be kept happy with a range of live entertainment, from drag acts to live music and quiz nights.

Crucially, the community will be at the heart of the pub, so as well as lining up entertainment and creating a safe space for everyone to enjoy, Jacqueline and her team will also support various initiatives such as donating to the local foodbank.

Liz Brady, business development manager at Admiral Taverns, added: “It’s fantastic to see how passionate Jaqueline is about the pub, which has been demonstrated through her excellent support throughout this refurbishment.

"The opening night was a great success, and I am sure The Millwood will be a hub for the Glasgow community for many years to come.

"I would recommend anyone in the area to take a visit, and I wish the pub every success for the future.”
