Tis still there 8)

Bit of a timewarp drinking in there tho.Still the same family business,decor, old ales etc.
Punters are still the same mix of off duty policemen, firemen and newspaper printers :roll:

Then you walk out and realise it is totally engulfed by surrounding developments like those Matrix flats.Looks a bit out of place now Im afraid to say.Heard its the same guy owns the whole block there.Pub,tenement flats and all and bought it in the 70s for peanuts.Maybe just an urban myth that one ::):

I like pubs where you know that, no matter what, nobody is going to turn up and start playing records loudly when it's obvious that the vast majority of the punters do not want to have to shout at each other to be heard.

They are an increasingly rare find...

Many years ago it was popular with members of Strathclyde Police Pipe Band.

Red Kola you are so right about pubs that put on blaring muzak that none of the punters want. I recall one of the HG nights in the Auctioner's in St Vincent's Place. Everything was going along nicely with high quality of socialising and the usual background, just-about-bearable, muzak. Then, up went the volume big time. So you are reduced to "sorry whit wiz that Jimmy?"... "Sorry whit?" ...""Aye right" ... followed by you pretending to hear half of what the other person was saying.

Apologies to all the photography purists as this was taken on my phone AFTER Id been in. :D

Sorry to say that after posting that it is a great pub,great ales due to continuityetc I've just discovered the guy thats owned it for 20 years has finally relented and sold the place leading to the staff walking out!.

Hopefully whoever does take the place on will keep its individual style up and it wont become another ONeils or suchlike.
