The family bar has been open for two years and has quickly become a popular part of the community.
It was named after Scottish Cuesports legend and family friend, Michael McGoldrick.
Paul and Natasha Corrigan, owners of McGoldrick’s, told Lanarkshire Live: “We have 10 UK pool tables, six US pool tables, two pool tables and eight darts lanes.
“We have an event booked with Sky for 2023 which will be amazing for the region. Our streaming desk and equipment for local and national events allow for incredible quality for viewers around the world.
“Our children’s academy has been extremely busy and it is a part of the club that we will continue to support and develop. Being family friendly is hugely important to us.
“We have received incredible support from our suppliers, customers, friends and family. They have all made the club what it is and we never take that for granted.”
They added: “It was amazing to be on the shortlist and everything else after that was an added bonus. We’ve been trading for two years and most of it has been through Covid restrictions.
“Going forward, we are always trying to do better in all aspects of our business, we want to provide the best installation experience and customer service that we can.
“We also have plans to hopefully expand the premises in the future.”
