A Grangemouth-based firm is serving up a popular attraction with its latest venture.

The Fusion Group has spent £250,000 redeveloping a former church ecumenical centre in Dunblane turning it into a small hotel and restaurant.

Since it opened at the end of June over 5000 visitors have enjoyed snacks, lunches and dinners.

Old Churches House, formerly Scottish Churches House, is situated across from Dunblane Cathedral and now boasts 11 bedrooms, a 60 seater restaurant, afternoon tea lounge and an event room for up to 60 people.

It now employs 35 people, including its own baker.

Now the firm has announced phase two to bring self catering accommodation and see the restoration of the 17th century chapel will be restored to offer a unique venue for christenings, small weddings and ceremonies.

Alex McKie, Old Churches House managing director, said: “We are really pleased with the early success and are about to launch our autumn/winter events programme including our first wedding fayre.”
