Food lovers in Girvan are soon set to have a new place to try with the Vaults pub getting approval to serve bar and restaurant meals.
South Ayrshire Council’s licensing board gave the go ahead for the application by Vaults owner Doreen Cowan at a meeting on Tuesday May 20.
The opening day for the new eaterie is Friday 6th June, just in time for major summer events that are sure to boost the trade among pubs in the town such as the football world Cup in Brazil which has reasonable kick off times for those working, which can be seen in our World Cup wallchart on pages 16-17. and the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games.
The news that food is to be served at the Vaults is a welcome boost to the town, particularly in the Glendoune Area.
The licensing board have given the green light to allow children and young people of all ages on the premises and to also allow children access to the pub from 10am to 9pm for the purposes of having a meal or a snack.
The premises which are situated at 34 Glendoune Street also have permission to open an hour earlier as well at 10am, from their current opening time of 11am.
Sales on the premises will now be from 10am- 12.30am Monday to Saturday with on sales permitted on Sundays from 10am-12midnight.
Off sales meanwhile are permitted to be sold to customers from 10am-10pm seven days a week.
Before last week’s decision, the Vaults had a licence to sell alcohol from 11am-12.30am on site Monday- Saturday and from 12midday-12 midnight on a Sunday.
Off sales began at the opening hour of 11am and continued until 10pm six days a week from Monday- Saturday, whilst the licence for off sales on a Sunday was from 12 midday until 10pm.
Be sure to look out for what The Vaults has to offer in terms of bar meals and restaurant food in upcoming editions of The Carrick Gazette.
