Much loved Largs venue reopens doors after significant investment

Scotts Largs Yacht Haven

ONE of Ayrshire’s top restaurants, Scotts Largs Yacht Haven, is set to reopen its doors this weekend (Saturday 12th November) after undergoing a significant refurbishment. 

Scotts Largs, operated by leading Scottish hospitality group, Buzzworks Holdings, closed on Tuesday 27 September for several weeks of renovation work, with the thorough makeover modernising the restaurant in line with the groups’ prestigious portfolio.

Designed by Scotland’s Jerry Thomson from 3 Design, the restaurant has been completely transformed. Visitors will be able to enjoy a warm and welcoming interior, with the addition of a rooflight within the main restaurant to bathe the venue with natural light. The restaurant’s capacity has also increased with an additional 40 seats added, alongside booths to allow larger groups to enjoy a meal together.

A stunning new 1000 litre aquarium will also be installed in the coming weeks, providing a modern, but relaxed feel to the venue and in keeping with Buzzworks other Scotts restaurants, located in South Queensferry and Troon respectively.

The addition of a stylish new outside space, boasting a fully serviced bar area, complete with a retractable roof and glazing system, as well as being dog friendly, will ensure the perfect al fresco space for all year-round drinking and dining for both residents and visitors to Largs.

Ayrshire foodies can rejoice, with a new state-of-the-art kitchen having been fitted, and the Buzzworks chef team having worked on a new autumn menu featuring delicious dishes, with fresh new flavours ready for the revamped restaurant opening its doors at the weekend.

For drinks connoisseurs, an enhanced modern bar will also be stocked with an impressive back gantry for great cocktails, craft gins and beers alongside an exceptional wine selection.  

Colin Blair, Buzzworks Holdings Chairman, said: “After 11 years of successful trading, we believed that it was the right time to reinvest and modernise Scotts Largs as part of our wider growth strategy.  

“It’s a fantastic venue and we have retained elements of its original concept, but this investment has allowed us to really enhance the relaxed and enjoyable experience we offer to visitors, through an up-to-date interior, fantastic covered outside space and new kitchen.

“We want to give Largs and the local community a venue to enjoy and be proud of, with all the changes being made with our customers in mind. We look forward to welcoming guests to our stylish new Scotts Largs venue for the opening this weekend and in the lead up to Christmas.” 

As a result of the significant investment, Scotts Largs will be offering opportunities for locals of varying skill levels and experience to join the award winning Buzzworks team, recently named in the Best Companies to Work For list.

A range of positions are available across the front of house and kitchen teams. Anyone interested or looking to apply at Scotts Largs, or any one of the Buzzworks venues across Scotland, should visit or search for ‘Buzzworks People’ on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.
