First licensed in 1815, this pub is famous for a folk music tradition started in the early 1960s, the most famous artist to appear here being the Glasgow legend Billy Connolly. The mock-Tudor frontage and a number of fittings date from a refurbishment in 1929. The bar counter has the old terrazzo spittoon trough around the base and match strikers all along the top; there is a mirrored back gantry and a part-glazed partition on the left, which creates a separate small bar. Following a period of closure, the pub was refurbished by Brendan McLaughlin in 1987, which is the date of the rear section of the back gantry, the short partitions and panelled walls. On the right, another partition creates a tiny snug on two levels, and there are signs of a another snug at the front where some bell-pushes remain.
