Jackson Carlaw MSP has praised the efforts of everyone involved with transforming a busy Busby pub after he was recently given a tour of the refurbished pub.

The Cartvale, on Main Street, has been backed by Heineken and received investment totalling £385,000 to allow the revamp of the site to go ahead.

The pub re-opened under new ownership in September 2019.

Mr Carlaw was shown the range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages available for customers, the kitchen, beer garden, menu of freshly made food, barista coffee making facility and he even got to pour a pint for customers himself!

The MSP for Eastwood said:

“It was excellent to see in person the impressive re-design that has taken place at The Cartvale.

“The focus that has been adopted is very much on providing a first class service for the local community in Busby and Eastwood.

“A delicious food menu has been put together and the bar hosts a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. I even had the opportunity to test my own skills behind the bar although not with much success!”

“I will definitely be back but next time, I think I will leave the pint pouring to the professionals!”
