Dine or Don’t at the Cafebar 1912 in Bathgate

This historic building owes its name to the opening of the building that has finally found its true calling. Originally an auctioneer and appraiser, it has existed in many forms for the past 100 years, the Norbury Hotel, The Scone Shop, Ballroom, Mercados Casino, Mcalford’s Ford Car Showroom, Norbery Travel, Kirby’s Hairdressing, Marshalls Insurance, TV Repairs, and even a boxing club, to name just a few. From the historic concrete floor and the chisel marks of the stonemasons to the reclaimed flooring of the Bathgate Academy’s gymnasium, which is used for the tables and seating, this building has a real sense of living.
