Quarter Gill (Oswald Street) closed.

Postby Doorstop » Fri Jun 26, 2015 9:23 am

Very sorry this morning to see the shutters down and a 'To Let' sign up at this Oswald Street institution.

One of the few surviving 'proper' old pubs in the city centre, they've been selling beers and pies on this site since 1870.

Sure, it was a wee bit off the beaten track but, the prices were reasonable and the welcome always warm.

A sign in the window said all the bar staff have moved just up the road, to Hope Street, to the Two-Heided Man (named after a Matt McGinn song).

You can read more about the history of the hostelry (try saying that after a couple of large ones!), at the brilliant Old Glasgow Pubs site.

Yeah, a sad loss if it remains closed.

Apologies, the Vital Spark (aka Fairfields) was open earlier today. Don't know if it has gone part-time :?

Spotted an ambulance and a rapid response paramedic wagon outside the Sir John Moore yesterday afternoon, about half one-ish.

Anyone know what happened?
Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

Someone dialled 999 because someone else presumably required urgent medical attention?

I passed the Classic Grand/ McDonalds corner yesterday and there wasn't an ambulance OR a police car outside.

Anyone know what happened?
I hear the people sing.
