Buzzworks Inns, the Prestwick-based bar and restaurant operator, is to open its seventh site in Scotland later this year after acquiring the Stag and Hound in Kilwinning from Punch Taverns. The group, which is led by Colin Blair, will reopen the Howgate pub after a refurbishment. Buzzworks also operates the Scotts-branded sites in Troon and Largs, plus the Treehouse in Ayr and the Lido in Troon. Colliers International acted on behalf of Punch.
