Our Story

While Buzzworks has come a long way over the years, we are every bit as passionate today as when we first started out.

It’s been quite a journey from opening our very first venue in Ayrshire to operating an award-winning collection of bars and restaurants across the country. As a family-owned business, we are proud to build relationships with local communities and continually surpass customer expectations.

From the outset we made a choice to use only the finest ingredients, the best local suppliers, and the most stylish natural materials available. To this day, everything on offer is carefully considered, from the fresh langoustines landed daily at Troon Harbour and the premium spirits in our cocktails, to the care, quality and artistry that goes into each and every cup of coffee we serve.

our journey so far:

Our Awards

From interior design awards to business accolades, Buzzworks has won a cabinet’s worth of trophies over the years. But quite frankly we couldn’t have done any of it without our people. Which is why we have been voted one of the Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For five years in a row.
