Oh the summer time has come....





"Oh the summer time has come..... 

Which famous song is that from? I'm sure you all know but just incase you don't, the answer is at the bottom of this letter! What's on at MacGregor's this month? * Garden party....no Royalty will be attending but YOU are invited  * The Vaults  * The night the Scotland team came in * Despite them......our range of merchandise is nearly there * Scottish minister for Culture and Tourism comes to MacGregor's * Weekly music   * This weeks beer * Do you need a MacGregor's near you?

We are so lucky to have such an amazing beer garden area which acts as a great sun trap throughout the day. Sit back and watch the world go by enjoying our amazing range of Thistly Cross Ciders. Made in Dunbar, Thistly Cross is without doubt a national treasure. Over the next few weeks we will be showcasing their Scrumpy, Whisky Cask, Elderflower, Strawberry and Traditional flavours.

Keep an eye out for details of our Garden Party on Saturday 27th when Milkit DJ's will be playing the beer garden from 2pm till 8pm- a mixture of Funk,Soul, Disco. Jazz and House.



The Vaults  The Vaults has become a real hit with folks. A speak-easy styled basement room suitable for up to 30 people. We've had private dining, birthday groups and business get-togethers. We can supply drinks packages and the kitchen team have four great menus available for larger groups.


The night the Scotland team came in....

An unbelievable evening as Scotland rugby stars including Stuart Hogg, Finn Russell and Huw Jones came along and enjoyed a night out at MacGregors! All 60 of the squad decended on the bar after a day of team building exercises. That is Kieran our bar man being a "salmon" ...yes things got a bit silly!



T-shirts are on their way!  We're opening our merchandise shop very soon! T-shirts, glasses, gift packs, even hot sauces will all be available from the bar and from our new online shop!





Culture minister visits "The Best bar in Scotland"

We were delighted to welcome Scotland's Minister for Culture and Tourism, Fiona Hyslop, to the bar last month. She was fascinated with the story of the crowd-funding, the bar's development and our plans for expansion. She was also mightily impressed by the five awards given to the bar in it's first year of operation.
