THE CARTVALE in Busby, on Glasgow’s south side, is to undergo a £385,000 revamp by Heineken’s Star Pubs & Bars and new licensee Andy Crossan.

The refurbishment is aimed at creating a family-friendly pub serving freshly made food with a Scottish slant. The Cartvale is scheduled to reopen in late August, with the creation of 15 jobs. Work on the project starts on July 1.

The exterior of the pub, on Busby’s Main Street, will be redecorated and The Cartvale’s garden, next to the White Cart Water, will undergo a makeover, with new decking, planting, and lighting, and will include seating for 90 people.

Mr Crossan wants The Cartvale to be “a hub of the community” and welcoming to all.

He said: “I’ve worked in hospitality all my life and have always wanted a pub of my own. It’s fantastic to work in a positive environment where you see people having a good time.

“When I saw The Cartvale was available, I knew it was the one. It’s my ideal – it’s in a great area that I know well and has loads of potential. The plans are really exciting, and the inside will be completely transformed when we’re finished. I can’t wait to open the doors.”

Heineken noted The Cartvale project was Star Pubs & Bars’ third major refurbishment in the Glasgow area this year, bringing total investment to nearly £800,000 and creating more than 35 jobs.
