£1.3m Hutchesons’ Hall restaurant plan gets underway
Restaurateur James Rusk has begun work on the transformation of Glasgow’s A-listed Hutchesons’ Hall into a £1.3m high-end dining experience.

Empty since 2008, following extensive storm damage, the National Trust owned property will be brought back to live as a café, bar, restaurant and private dining experience set over three floors.

Rusk said: “We’ve been working with the National Trust for Scotland in the background for the last two years trying to bring a new purpose to this unique, standalone building that is soaked in layers of history and culture.

“When I stepped foot inside the grand hall, I instantly knew that I wanted to sympathetically transform this magnificent landmark into a distinctive dining experience for all to enjoy.”

Interior work is being undertaken in collaboration with CM Design with the fit-out being delivered by Transition Interiors. The new restaurant is scheduled to open its doors in late spring.
