Metropolitan Pub Company Acquires Clydesdale Family Business
We are delighted to announce the acquisition of three family-run pubs and restaurants in Glasgow, Scotland as part of our strategy to grow the business outside of London.
We are excited to welcome the award-winning iconic Ubiquitous Chip, Stravaigin and Hanoi Bike Shop located in Glasgow’s popular West End to the Metropolitan estate and continuing the legacy that the Clydesdale family has built over the last 50 years.
Colin Clydesdale said: “Metropolitan Pub Company approached Carol and I, as great admirers of The Chip, Stravaigin and Hanoi, with an interest in buying. After much consideration, we decided to sell the business that has been in family ownership since 1971.
“I truly believe the business and people will be in safe hands with Michael and the team, who will continue the legacy that we have built. We look forward to visiting as customers for many years to come.”
Michael Horan, Managing Director of Metropolitan Pub Company, said: “We are really excited to welcome these iconic sites to the Metropolitan estate, and continuing the legacy that the Clydesdale family has built over the last 50 years.
“We are looking forward to working with the 145 team members to continue providing the world class hospitality to the people of Glasgow.”
We are looking forward to continuing to provide provenance-filled quality food, fine drinks and creating more memories for guests in these historical establishments.
