The new outdoor drinking and dining area will take up the space which used to be the road, and will be decorated with box planters, filled with real heathers and majoram, and umbrellas.

Pop-up gazebos will also be used to protect customers from the temperamental Glasgow weather.

The restaurant is allowed to have outdoor seating.
