I used to pass this place regularly in the 60's when I was a schoolboy, because it was on the #13 bus route, that being the bus I jumped on to visit my grandparents.
The Glen Lyon was located at 231 Clepington Road to be precise, and the ad is dated 1968.
By the time I reached drinking age in the mid 70's, it had changed to The Ambassador, so I never did get a wee keek inside it!
Now it's The Centenary Bar.

  1. Wow, just started researching my family tree and this is an advert for my great grandfathers pub. Big up to my great gran who used to be the cleaner, the cook, and served the punters. Xx
