Tim and Oonagh bought the West End Bar in December 2017. Born and brought up in Edinburgh, Tim spent much of his career in London at drinks company Diageo, via a year at culinary school there, at Leith's School of Food & Wine. While his job took him to live in New York for four years, Oonagh also took the opportunity of spending several years in the Caribbean in hotel management. Running their own place had been on the cards for a while, and when they happened upon the West End's 'for sale' sign, a conversation over a pint with Captain 'Foghorn' Willy started them on the path to buying the place. A couple of years on, the business is once more becoming the heart of the community, thanks not just to their hard work but to the fantastic team they've built, and the loyalty of their wonderful regulars.
