A pub in the Highlands has beaten off competition from hundreds across the UK to win a makeover that will transform the business.

The Tooth & Claw in Inverness picked up the £10,000 top prize in the PRS for Music competition which attracted more than 200 entrants from across the UK.

Lee Gripton, general manager at The Tooth & Claw, said: "Words cannot describe what this means to us. We're now in a position to really set our dream in motion. We've worked extremely hard to get to where we are now.

"The help from PRS means we can achieve our goals perfectly and really contribute to the ever growing music scene in Inverness!"

The panel of judges, which included Inapub, also picked two runners-up. The Brook Inn in Plymouth won the second prize of £5,000 with the Booth Hall in Hereford picking-up £2,500 for coming third.

Guy Fletcher OBE, PRS chairman, said: "Lee, the manager at The Tooth & Claw's energy and vision really impressed me alongside the enormous potential of the venue. There is a real opportunity here to cement this pub as a key live music venue in Inverness and we can't wait to help that happen."

Inapub will reveal how the money helps the pub improve its live music offer in a future edition of the magazine.
