Countdown to opening of Shawfair pub

The countdown to Shawfair’s new family pub and restaurant has begun with the final touches being put to the Old Colliery.

Its completion is near and the team can’t wait to welcome locals through its doors.

Dougie Hunter, who along with wife Margot will be managing the Old Colliery on behalf of Marston’s Inns and Taverns, said: “We’re really excited about the opening on June 17.

“We’ve worked all over the country - from Bathgate to Bury St Edmunds and Bristol – and we’re really looking forward to it.”
