A POPULAR Renfrewshire pub has been welcoming back customers following the completion of an extensive six-week refurbishment.

Marmalade Pot, formerly known by locals as Bobbin Mill, celebrated its grand reopening at the Phoenix Retail Park, in Paisley, last month.

The guest of honour was Janie Bruce, Renfrewshire and Inverclyde's group co-ordinator at the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society, who was delighted to cut the ribbon during the opening ceremony.

Following a significant investment, seven new jobs have been created for the local area, with more on the way.

James Kelly, general manager of Marmalade Pot, told The Gazette: "We're so pleased at how brilliant the pub looks following the refurbishment, and we were thrilled to have special guest, Janie Bruce, here to cut the ceremonial ribbon for us!

"The new name and look pays homage to the Robertson Jam jars which were made in Paisley."

Following the refurbishment, the Marmalade Pot will continue to look to support the local community with a calendar of fundraising initiatives throughout the year.

James added: "We're now looking forward to fundraising for the MS Society, the UK’s largest charity for people affected by multiple sclerosis. Once diagnosed, MS stays with a person for life so the money raised will help fund research to prevent MS and help sufferers manage the condition and its symptoms."

"Bringing the new look Sizzling Pub & Grill to Paisley is really exciting for the whole team. At The Marmalade Pot, we offer good food and good value for all our guests, and we’re thrilled to be providing the area with a new dining destination that does that in a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere.

"The pub looks fantastic following its refurbishment. We can’t wait to welcome back our regulars and the people of Paisley to see what the new look Marmalade Pot is all about."
