YOU might not think that the Springcroft is much to look at, let alone realise that it is something of a nine-day wonder.
This hugely popular restaurant and bar in Ballieston, on the eastern outskirts of Glasgow, reopened on January 17, 2019, after undergoing a comprehensive makeover.
The operators Mitchells & Butlers entrusted the job to Pacific, having established a longstanding relationship with the company.
An 11-day project timescale was pencilled in for a refurbishment programme that involved:
- Bar alterations
- New fonts
- Stripping out of all furniture
- Extensive toilet refurbishments
- Electrical works
- Floor and wall tiles
- Alarm system
- CCTV installation
- New kitchen fit-out
- Refinishing of existing timber flooring
- New screens and partitions
- New entrance door and vestibule
- New furniture
- Replace external furniture
- Exterior building work
- New signage
- Refurbishment of kiddies’ play area
But Pacific drew on all their experience and expertise to complete the project in just nine days – a wonder indeed.
The Springcroft is marketed as a Sizzling Pub by Mitchells & Butlers and its clientele love its honest-to-goodness food, atmosphere and service.
It is just a stone’s throw from Mount Vernon, Springboig and Shettleston, and is the perfect place to enjoy a catch-up with friends, family and locals over a drink and a meal, whether that’s breakfast, lunch, dinner or a mid-afternoon snack.
