A Glasgow pub has recently reopened following a major £280,000 renovation which has created 20 new jobs.

The Boyd Roderick (formerly The Burrell) on Pollokshaws Road has been extensively redecorated throughout by pub company Punch as part of an investment programme.

The new-look Boyd Roderick is being operated by Campbell Dickson and Calum Gillies of Caledonian Skye Ltd, which already runs a number of outlets including the Caledonian Café and the Portree Hotel on the Isle of Skye.

Looking forward to welcoming customers back is manager Kevin Murphy.

Kevin has more than 25 years in the pub and restaurant trade and has previously worked at Rogano and the Urban Bar and Brasserie in Glasgow.

He said: “We’re delighted with the results of this refurbishment, which has also included an extension to the kitchen.

“This means that 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, with coffee and light snacks also served throughout the day.

Sales and recruitment development manager for Punch, Iain Thomson, said: “This is an exciting new start for The Boyd Roderick and we are delighted to be supporting the Caledonian Skye team with their ambitious plans for the pub.”
