    I like the idea of diary function, as long as it does not involve me that is

    From the Pompey pubs web site, does not appear to be outstanding, unless you love buildings, do I hear a few takers here?

    It is universal, to be honest I have not really played with it, FILO really was the master of the forum, and he has not been around recently

    Now I wonder why it is called..
    The coat of arms for Linlithgow where this pub is situated contains a Black Bitch (Black female dog) against an oak tree, hence the name of the pub.

    Hi Edmon

    Thanks for that - i take it it is nothing to do with Mary Queen of Scots, wasn't she born in the palace?

    please stick some reviews up - i dont think we get much from Scotland. I did a few for Annan, Newton Stewart and Glasgow when last up

    Hi Edmon,

    Thanks for that, there is no way there wasn't going to be a good explanation to that. I have to admit the most shocking I can remember is the Fighting Cocks, that became the Happy Cocks before closing (Dave can correct me if I am mis-remembering).

    Anyway, good to hear from you on the forum, thanks for all your pictures and corrections, especially as one of the trio who is making Scotland actually useful on our site, it was a horrible out of date mess.

    In case you don't know I am one of the admins on the site, so if there is anything you would like to see on the site or think would improve it I would love to know. I also think I should introduce Hopwas who is our local bar stool warmer on the forum, guaranteed to have a chat if you fancy some banter.

    Thanks Conrad

    Hi Edmon..

    Pardon me! Welcome to PG (short for Pubsgalore) and reviews, pictures would be badly needed for Scotland section. Feel free to add them.

    Went to Scotland twice, been to Edinburgh (what a beautiful and cracking place for pubs), Aberdeen, Inverness, Elgin and few others. I particularly enjoyed Pint of 80- and 90- which is top notch.

    Oh I am covering North Midlands along with Soupy (Soup dragon)

    Enjoy your stay at PG!
