UK-based pub group Admiral Taverns has re-opened The Brockburn, a Glasgow pub formerly known as The Pollock, following a £340,000 refurbishment.

The re-opening took place on 23 February 2024. Admiral Taverns’ Proper Pubs subsidiary invested in the establishment, giving it a new look and upgraded amenities.

Located on Brockburn Road, the pub’s renovation included both interior and exterior enhancements.

The interior now features a redecorated bar and lounge area, creating an inviting atmosphere for patrons.

The exterior has been modernised with new lighting and signage, along with the installation of bi-fold doors that open to the outdoor space.

The Brockburn operator Margaret Drennan said: “Opening night was fantastic! It was amazing to welcome all our customers, old and new, back into the pub to check out its fresh new look and see what it has to offer.
