We’re delighted to announce that we have been granted permission from Perth & Kinross Council to expand our popular outdoor Beer Terrace.
We will now be able to seat an additional 25-30 customers in our outdoor seating area – fantastic news, just in time for the warm Summer days.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Perth & Kinross Council for their support and understanding on this matter and we look forward to a busy Summer period.
Kathryn Anderson, Local Democracy Reporter for The Courier, recently published an article after permission was granted. Please see below:
“Perth and Kinross councillors have given a well-known Perth pub permission to extend its outdoor seating area.
The Kirkside Bar sits in Perth’s Cafe Quarter opposite Perth Museum – what was Perth City Hall – which is due to open next year.
The St John’s Place pub already had outdoor seating. However, as part of the £27.2 million works on Perth Museum the road on St John’s Place and around the old Perth City Hall have been removed to create a wider pedestrian zone.
Landlord and Fair City businessman Derek Petterson told the Local Democracy Reporting Service: “The council asked us if we want to come out more. It gives us an extra six by two metres and allows about 25 to 30 more people out front. It’s been good for the Café Quarter and good not just for our regulars but for people visiting the area.”
Lawyer Kenneth Glass told Perth and Kinross licensing board it would allow a “modest increase” in capacity and bring “an element of consistency along the square”. He added: “It will bring it out in line with neighbouring Willows”.
