New steak restaurant sizzles with style

18th November 2016

A NEW suburban steak restaurant that sizzles with style has been created by Pacific Building.

A full-blooded transformation of a former rustic pub and diner ensured that it would cut the mustard as an upmarket Miller & Carter eatery.

It took just four weeks to convert The Osprey in Newton Mearns, near Glasgow, which had been popular with locals and visitors to the area for many years, into the steakhouse.

And Pacific’s efforts did not go unnoticed because, shortly afterwards, The Miller & Carter was nominated for “Best Newcomer” in the Scottish Entertainment Awards 2017.

The restaurant joins a roster of more than 50 M&Cs trading across the UK, which are operated within the Mitchells & Butlers stable of restaurants and bars.

This latest Miller & Carter was handed over to the client company on November 10, 2016 – after a £700,000 refurbishment that commenced on October 10 –and it opened for business today (November 18, 2016).

The impressive project will involved:

  • New kitchen
  • Repositioning of the bar
  • New stone flooring
  • Replacement windows
  • New doors
  • New partitions
  • New entrance path with post and rope fencing
  • Changed roofing profile over the entrance porch
  • Patio and paving
  • Repairs to the rendering
  • Lighting
  • Picket fencing
  • Carpets, curtains, tiling, other flooring
  • New toilets
  • Decoration
  • New waiting staff stations
  • Seating
  • Signs
  • Landscaping and gardening

This is the third Miller & Carter project to have been undertaken by Pacific, who have a longstanding and fruitful relationship with Mitchells & Butlers, who are the UK’s largest operators of bars and restaurants.

M&B run 1700 businesses, many of them household names, including All Bar One, Toby Carvery, Harvester and Browns.

Employing 44,000 staff, annual sales are close to £2billion and they serve about 140million meals a year, as well as some 430million drinks.

Pacific completed the first Miller & Carter on the outskirts of Edinburgh in 2014 and the second in Glasgow early in 2016.
