“The daytime and nightlife in Kirkcaldy’s west end has grown and developed well during 2016.

“Society have bonded extremely well with O’Connells, The Penny and The Tipsy Cow, bringing you the customer, quality, safe, comfortable concepts and experiences to relax and enjoy, late into the evening and the early hours.

“It was such great relationships that led us to this fabulous addition to the Society, Legends and Drummonds Hotel families.

“We plan to continue the development of the ‘Tipsy’ brand to bring you even greater things moving forward into 2017.

“Kirkcaldy High Street for many years, hasn’t enjoyed the atmosphere and buzz it has currently.

“It is so wonderful to see so many people of all ages enjoying the west end again.”

To celebrate the change of ownership there will be a party held on Wednesday, November 30, St Andrews Day, starting at 7pm.

Kingdom Taverns’ statement added: “We would like to wish the new owners every success in their new venture.

“We would also like to thank all our customers for all their support.”
