PRESTWICK'S newest bar is now open following an "extensive refurbishment".

Back in February, we reported that Amber Taverns had taken over the former Caprice restaurant in the town.

The pub operator, which also owns The Northern Way in Irvine and The Standing Man in Kilmarnock, have been working tirelessly behind the scenes ever since - and are now ready to welcome locals into the establishment.

Now known as 'The Burgh Bar' - with signage dawning the town's coat of arms - opening day was officially marked on Thursday, June 13.

Timing could not have been much better for the new venue, who pride themselves in offering "unbeatable sports action", with doors swinging open just in time for Scotland's Euro 2024 opener against Germany on Friday, June 14.

As they prepared to welcome customers for the first time, The Burgh Bar team told the people of Prestwick what they can expect from their latest venue.

A spokesperson said: "Get ready to raise a glass to The Burgh Bar – your new go-to spot for great drinks, unbeatable sports action, and good times in Prestwick.

"From thrilling football matches to epic boxing showdowns, Euro 2024 live games to The Open, we've got you covered with multiple screens throughout the pub.

"Plus, we'll be showing all the big-ticket events, including pay-per-view specials – so you won't miss a moment of the action!"

Though pub team also looked to clarify a few housekeeping rules with those planning a visit.

As a "wet-led" venue, the pub will be operating a strict adults only policy.

While Scotland tops are welcome for Euros matches, when regular league action returns the team are asking no football colours are worn.
