A city centre pub is undergoing a major transformation as a new owner is working hard to shed its "rough boozer notoriety".

Brian Carnochan - from Clydebank - took the reigns of The Grant Arms on Argyle Street nearly two years ago and has been working hard to revamp the venue since.

We previously reported that Brian, 51, scooped up the Gold Award at the Best Bar None Ceremony in November 2023 for his efforts.

In an update shared with punters on social media on Friday, Brian revealed images of the bar completely gutted amid the renovation.

The pub is due to reopen in three weeks following work to install a new bar and seating areas.

Next year, the team hope to have completed the installation of new toilets, including an accessible toilet.

A spokesperson for the Grant Arms wrote: "This is just the start.

"We are on a journey which will see the Grant Arms Glasgow completely refurbished.

"We will reopen on January 26, 2024, after installation of the new bar.

"Over the next 18 months, we will be creating new toilets including a disabled toilet.

"We will also be installing new seating areas and removing walls to increase the available space for customers.

"Give us time and a new Grant Arms will be created for all our amazing customers.

"We anticipate having to close again in January 2025 to allow for completion of work which cannot be undertaken whilst we are open for customers."
