Yeah, was a pub for a while. Never really went in there. Full of Yflab sorts. emoji14.png

Yeah same here I never went in it much, but used too pass it on my way to school every morning ( St Aelreds ), I was the ultimate arcade game freak but that place was mainly full of fruit machine's, the big apple was my regular haunt..

The Caberet I think it was called, it's now a shop that sell bikes, or at least was the last time I noticed..

It’s not exactly across from Kennedys tho,no wonder naebuddie knew what balfy was on about.

Was it also called Joken for a while?

Ach. Being honest it was a bolt hole used during school lunchtimes. I moved south after school, before I was “legally” allowed to enter a boozer. It’s not an area of town I’ve been back to much since I returned up the road. Was it kinda opposite a boozer called Corkers or what that a rename job on Kennedy’s. 
 

Anyway I don’t visit those pubs as they are not Saints boozers. FTOF. COYS.

Yeah,it was across from Corkers.Kennedys  is on corner of Orchard St.

I too am a lover of pinball machines.

This thread has become quite chatty - great anecdotes!

This thread is great, since nobody is trying to prove he/she knows everything about everything while insulting others posters with different opinions with threats and verbal abuse.

Long may it continue  :)

When I went to Copsticks they were on the corner of Causeyside st and Gordon street . Right above the Lews store. 

Very possible it wasn't Copsticks, but it was definitely a dentist in that building. I remember she bought me a wee metal model plane, a Gloster Javelin, for being a brave wee boy! There must have been a toy shop close by.

Now reliably informed the Dentist was called Dr Storie.  I started going to Copsticks much later above Lews.

With Storie being there, I would imagine the wee toy plane came from Walker Street post office .
