OK, I've been reading the supplement in the sunday Mail recently and been finding that I've been in most of the pubs of the week, so..........

Your top 5 boozers if you please gentlemen!

1. Brunswick Cellars - Sauchiehall St.

2. Curlers/Jock Tamson's - Byres Rd. (before they changed)

3. The Leisure Bowl Bar - Alloa

4. Rookies - Amsterdam

5. The Harveistoun Inn - Tillicoultry

No women allowed in any of those pubs, Bob? :P:o

3. Usige Ba (?), Glasgow

Ok, women allowed too then!

Your No.3 - Woodlands Road, if I'm not mistaken. Anyone????

Not got five but if you're in Newcastle you should try "The Tap & Spile" in Shields Rd., Byker. It's not one of the Bigg Market/Quayside pubs which cater for hen nights/ stag parties but an old fashioned boozer specialising in Cask Conditioned Ales.

Ask for a pint of Landlord, you won't be disapointed.

5. The Doric in Edinburgh

4. Behind The Wall in Falkirk

3. Kaufleuten Garage in Zurich

2. Bierhalle Republik in Glasgow for the fine array of beers

1. The Noble Dubliner in Zurich - my local when i'm there. Yes, to the outsider it might just be another shitey themed Irish pub but it has provided me with many a happy memory over the years.

Oh and the Outback Pub in Zurich was great until all the Aussie barstaff left and were replaced by Swiss. It used to host great parties every Friday and Saturday with dancing on the tables and the like.

Owned by an, ahem, straight down the middle non-dodgy Glasgow businessman. :ph34r::ph34r:

Quite possibly, but the beer/banter combination is hard to beat. And they don't like large groups of students (sorry if you are in a large group of students).

And yes, that one on Woodlands Road is the one I mean. I particularly like the hanging Maggie Thatcher in the corner.

No, no, it is a fine boozer. No doubt.

It's ok, I've remembered.

It was one of the bars in Glasgow airport. I think they've changed its name to Tennents now - or something like that.

:rolleyes:

Ah yes, the Commercial. My highlight of going in there was my mate putting his pint on the table... which promptly toppled over sending his pint flying! :D

I'd just like to say that Vesuvio's and Edinburgh Castle (of So, I Married An Axe Murderer fame) in San Francisco are two of the greatest pubs in the whole wide world. Ever. But it's too far to walk to at this time of night.

It's not an uncommon name for pubs selling Cask Ales as the Spile hole is where the air gets into the barrel during pouring and Tap is obvious.

A veritable fountain of knowledge - I thank you!

Yes, I know they're all Irish pubs, but I'm a Guinness drinker and those are the pubs where I've had the best pints of Guinness. :guinness
