It’s a new year and for John Reddin and the team at Triplekirks in Aberdeen, it means a brand new look for their pub.

Closing after trading on the evening of Saturday 8th January, Triplekirks, which is owned by national pub operator, the Stonegate Pub Company will be closed for ten days as the pub undergoes an investment of £140,000 which will see the pub completely refurbished throughout.

Exodus, the nightclub which is attached to the Triplekirks will remain open whilst the pub is transformed.

The team at the pub will be hosting a celebratory party open to the public from 7pm on Friday 20th January where customers can get a glimpse of the fresh new look, along with sampling the new food and drink menu. To delight and entertain guests, the pub will host an array of entertainment including stilt-walkers and fire eaters to ensure that the party really gets going.

Speaking about the refurbishment, John Reddin, manager of the Triplekirks said: “What a great way to start 2012. The team and I are really excited about the refurbishment plans; everything in the pub will be brand spanking new, from the lighting, the furniture, the televisions – even our food and drink offer has been revamped.

“Whilst the Triplekirks is closed the team will be undertaking extensive training to ensure that our customer service is the best in Aberdeen. It’s been a while since the pub has had an investment on this level so we’re going to do all we can to ensure that Triplekirks is the first pub that people think of whether they are looking for a place to meet friends, somewhere to enjoy a bite to eat or a place to celebrate the weekend!”
