PB Developments, the Aberdeen-based pub and bar operator, is to open its ninth site in the city, after acquiring the Bieldside Inn from Signature Pub Group, which was sold off an asking price of £1.495m. PB Development, the privately-owned company, currently operates Soul, Soul Casino, The College, Babylon, The Forum, The Stage Door, The Queen Vic, and Zen Oriental, within Aberdeen’s West End and city centre. Signature Pub Group, which is led by Gareth Wood, decided to sell The Bieldside Inn to concentrate in the acquisition and development of further city centre bars.
