The Lord Darnley, Pollokshields

Postby GolfSnowMan » Wed Nov 27, 2013 12:41 am

Calling all patrons of the Lord Darnley, Pollockshields from mid 70's to mid 80's when it was one of the best boozers in the south side. With most of the south side (Cathcart, Muirend, Mount Florida, Castlemilk, Pollock etc) being designated dry areas at that time, many like me would jump onto a choo choo and get off at Pollokshields East station and two minutes later have a pint in their hand. :idea:

Thanks for the link but I was looking for anything between 1975-85.

1975-80 were the beer years

1980-85 were the wacky-backy years.

One of our pet hates. Don't forget apostrophecatastrophes and sweeping generalisations, two more of mine.

Welcome.

I note from my research the the author of Old Glasgow Pubs refers to the above deaths from TB

"It was closed down a few years ago with the scare of T.B. when a few old customers fell ill."

He's much more interested in having a go at the council and whom they granted a license to.

Compare and contrast that statement with the bald facts in the BBC News report above.

We used to go there every Friday night in around '83 - or the Sherbrooke. There were loads of people from Bellahouston in the basement bar then. The upstairs was just the old guys and jakies. It's amazing to think that they had to open the bit through at the back of the basement at the weekend it was so busy.

The back was opened as a restaurant which they called Rizios. Didn't take off so eventually it was an overspill from the (very crowded) downstairs bar.
