The business pair behind the Caledonian Cafe and the Portree Hotel on the Isle of Skye have moved into Glasgow with the re-launch of the former Burrell pub on Pollokshaws Road.
The new-look Boyd Roderick – part of the Punch estate – is being operated by Campbell Dickson and Calum Gillies of Caledonian Skye Ltd. It has re-opened following at £280,000 renovation which has created 20 new jobs.
It will be managed by Kevin Murphy, who has more than 25 years' experience in the pub and restaurant trade and has previously worked at Rogano and Urban Bar and Brasserie in Glasgow.
“We're delighted with the results of this refurbishment, which has also included an extension to the kitchen,” Murphy said. “This means as well as a stylish new look, The Boyd Roderick will be offering a range of freshly-prepared Scottish produce alongside a selection of quality beers and wines.”
Local ingredients such as west coast shellfish feature heavily on the menu, and there is a selection of craft beers. Coffee and light snacks will also be served throughout the day.
