A Hyndland favourite is to undergo a major refurbishment – for the second time in two years.

Epicures of Hyndland was recently acquired by the pub and restaurant group owned by itison entrepreneur Oli Norman.

Sibling venue Nick’s Neighbourhood Bar and Kitchen underwent an extensive refit at the start of the year.

Oli is now wanting to breathe new life into its prestigious ‘big brother’ over the road.

A release from Glasgow’s Great Institutions and Taverns sets out the plans.

It says: “We’re giving epicures a major makeover, closing from this Monday 6 and relaunching on Friday 24.

“The £250k makeover is designed to make the already beautiful space even better.


“We’re bringing back trees; introducing an epic salad bar; incredible cakes and a new dinner experience.

“The new look will also include an event area and spaces for groups to meet along with their own line-up of events to bring the community together.

“The new menu will be unveiled next week along with sneak peeks of the new look, so keep your eyes peeled @epicuresglasgow for all the latest on the relaunch.”

Other venues in the GGIT group include West End favourite brel, Sloans, Maggies, The Griffin and Jacques.
