That pic is so sad.My mum, dad and I were the very last paying diners in the Angus. The kitchen closed for good once our lunch was served.
That pic must be taken around 1998/99? By this stage, I think it was owned by Thistle Hotels - I knew it as the Angus Thistle.I was working nearby at the time, and had to make my way past the site every morning. I'm with Bridie - it was sad to see it come down, given it was such a landmark in that part of town.

Offered a job there once by the GM who I seem to remember was called Robin Williams
