A high street pub which has been undergoing a major £325,000 refurbishment is now recruiting to fill 25 vacancies.

The former Antonine Pub in Kirkintilloch, renamed The Lion & Star after the town’s two famous foundries, has an opening date of Wednesday, March 23.

A spokesperson for Star Pubs & Bars who own the venue, said: “People can apply via the email address or via the job centre.”

Posts available range from managers to kitchen staff, cleaners, bar staff and waiting staff. Of these, the firm says 60 per cent will be part-time positions.

The new owners are still on the lookout for one of the iconic red telephone boxes which were produced at the foundries.

Pub operator Stephen Bremner said: “If anyone has one and is looking for a new home for it, we’d love to hear from you.”
