306 Garscube Road, corner of 2 Sawmillfield Street, Glasgow.


Scott's Bar

Scott's sat at the corner of Garscube Road and Sawmillfield Street. Many will remember this old pub as Deery's.

In 1882 Miss Scott was landlady here, she occupied the premises for a few years before Peter Watson acquired the licence. The Scott family traded in this area since the 1870s.

Peter Watson also owned a small pub at 141 Garscube Road. He gave up the licence in 1905 to John W Hutchison, he traded under the name of MacFarlane & Hutchison. John was also trustee for the late Vincent Sweeney who owned a pub at 29 Castle Street.

Over the years the pub still retained it's original name "Scott's."

During the 1960s James Deery was landlord, the locals called this old pub Deery's Bar, James went on to open the Inn, Lambhill. As seen from the photograph above the name above the door is Wines & Spirits. The pub was demolished shortly afterwards.
