I've got it now. Passed it many times but on that side of the street and never looked up so didn't realise the name had changed. It's probably one of the plusher premises on Baron Taylor's Street.

The upstairs bar was a good place for live music about 40 years ago.

I was a regular customer there from about 1973-76 when the hosts were Alex and Marion from Denmark and grumpy Bob the barman!

Haugh Road runs from the Ness Bank Church out towards Bellfield Park.  NOT the riverside road - that's Ness Bank - but the main, two-way road on the other side of the church. I always thought of "the Haugh" as being the area on the left if you are going out of town. 

I don't think I was ever in the Haugh Bar, though I do remember an off-licence somewhere along Haugh Road!

My parents used to be members of Clachnacuddin Small Bore Rifle Club. Back in the 60s or early 70s - before the Club moved to its current range at Kinmylies - they used to shoot in an attic somewhere down the Haugh. I'm not sure exactly where - I'd have to wander round and see if any memories came back. The club's website says "apparently shooting in an attic above a pub", but I'm not sure about that.

It became infamous fer actually barring English tourists.

Which was the one where the landlord was refusing to serve Campbells*?  Was that the Haugh as well, or somewhere else?

* ie refusing to serve drink to people called Campbell.  Nothing to do with tins of condensed soup...

The off-licence is Chalkys and it is still there.  The 25m range was part of the same building upstairs right behind the Haugh Bar where I fired my first real bullets .22, it was freezing cold and poor lights but it was a great introduction to shooting.

Are you not thinking of the Clahaig Inn at glencoe for obvious reasons. The sign on the door said no hawkers dogs or Campbell but eventually dogs were allowed in. Pretty harsh on the Campbells in my opinion couldn’t wish for nicer people :wink:
