Paisley Pubs

Recommended Posts


My auld dad used to drink in there. 1 week before it was knocked down, they ask him to prove his age :lol: and that was 34 years ago :lol: He said the Tudor arms was the best pub paisley ever had when the Bisland family owned it. :)

Jings - aren't some people's faithers awfy young...? :o

The Bislands ran great pubs - efficient and pleasant and clean. They made their dosh running a brilliant Station Bar (now Stowe) before taking on the Tudor. It started out as a wee place: bar on left and lounge on right, then they opened the big lounge through the back - and it just kept growing Tardis-like into the Carnegie's it is now! (Is it still Carnegie's?) :unsure:

Aaaaahhhh.... the close season really is upon us, now! :)

That place was originally built as the new Hibs Hall. Didn't last very long and just about everything that's been there since has been similarly doomed...

i've always wondered about the wee pub at the end of incle street before the one way goes onto weir street, it's under the railway arch, and it has an ancient sign saying 'The Tabernacle'.

It always been a derelict boozer since i was a kid, can anyone actually remember it open?

edit to add - was the 'Wee Howff', the market bar at one point?

Magoos was the name at one point. I think it was the scene of some quite nasty violence near the end of it's life.

The Wee Howff was formerly the Market bar.
