Boozers in Gorgie - My take on it.

Recommended Posts

chester copperpot

Decided to take a wee tour of gorgie last night to see what was the best boozer in Gorgie.

 

Westfields - Rubbish, I've been going there for years now, but its lost something.

 

Station Bar - Too quiet.

 

Strattie's - Good atmosphere, great laugh, rubbish pints though.

 

Robbo's - Magic. Fair enough there was a fair bit trouble and some guy tried to punch my mate, but apart from that the place was rocking. Met S.U.S.S last night who's cool as feck. Almost got knocked out myself for asking everyone in the place if they were The BoomTownRat.

 

Merchie Hearts - Cheap bevvy, plenty o slappers, I loved it.

 

So all in all, I think Robbo's could be getting visited from now on. I even met Drylaw Hearts who was smiling for a change:).

Westfield- unwashed chav central

 

 

Station bar - a rugby bar

 

Stratties - ok at times but drop their pants to the weegie unwashed when they come calling

 

Robbos - decent for the big games, good atmosphere and unpretencious, not so great for smaller games

 

Diggers- Too many old rude old men who think its there right to block the bar and continually bump into people

 

Balmoral - hun pub

 

Tbh none of the pubs in gorgie are particularly appealing, I stick to robbos for the big 3 games and diggers for the rest

Merchie hertz, nice club, pity about the little old ladies in it that think they are on a power trip who quite obviously have sad little lifes outside of the club. It seems that the club is their life and any strange faces are very much made to feel unwelcome like myself and my better half were last night.

 

Wee hint to those wee auld wifies in there who sit with their knitting, there are ways of speaking to people without being damn pig ignorant about it and having the tone of Hitlers wife which basically makes you come across as complete old hags. Go and get a ride ffs, it might just put some smiles on those wrinkly old coupons of yours!

 

Tedp, you can take the 29th as cancelled from Linda and myself, I wont be setting foot back in there.

 

On a positive note it was good to meet SUSS and Bighusref for the first time last night in Robbo's, 2 very sound quality guys. I too got some strange looks for shouting "is there any boomtown rats in the house" at the top of my voice lol!!

 

5pm indeed TBTR you lightweight :)

Was there bingo last night ????????

 

I cannot remember leaving, cannot remember how I got home (I know I am home only because this is the house that I left from to go to the club yesterday morning and it looks sort of familiar), just got out of bed about 40 minutes ago, and still feel rather fragile.

 

All in all a rather super day yesterday.

Heh heh, nothing nearly as bad as that mate, jesus I'd hate to think what would have happened if I did!! :wacko:

 

Anyway, I'm now banned so they dont need to worry about me talking during the bingo, apparently your not allowed to stand up for yourself in there and just have to take the abuse dished out at you, whether merited or not.

Especially when the big guy who was proudly shouting about the fact he was a Hibby, got told to either shut it or to leave as he could cause a lot of problems. He got on a number 25 about 5.20 and was as quiet as a mouse until he got off the bus at Shandwick Place and got gubbed right away for shouting about Hibs.

Funny enough i was in Merchie Hearts for the 1st time last night.Got signed in by some members who were leaving(thanks).He had to say he was coming back in or the auld man on the door wouldn't have let us in.A right bundle of laughs was the doorman.He told me not to cause any trouble (47 years old:))

Enjoyed myself once inside and met Barby for the 1st time alongwith AJ Wife.Shame they were leaving.Only other person i recognised was Fergie.Enjoyed myself inside but i can understand how JM would feel with the auld women.

Was in Robbo's before.Hellhole if being honest.Not my cup of tea.Used to drink in the Westfield before games but never liked it there so now we go to the Gorgi Bowling club now.Cheap,quick and friendly service.

So last night it was Gorgi Bowling club,Station(empty) Strattie's(think it was 75 p a vodka) where some punter dropped a bottle of beer on a posties bag.:)

Robbo's,crap service,crap songs and a terrible smell.Merchie Hearts cheap friendly service,Diggers.Nothing special.Then a can of cider on the train and a pub crawl in Falkirk which ended up in Behind the Wall a pub i hate to 1.00am.Lost scarf somewhere between takeaway and the road home.:wacko:

I have to disagree with you there. The first time I went into the Merchie in recent years (just at the start of this season), I was made to feel very welcome by all concerned. Have been ever since.
