i had dinner in there recently, very nice place but its a bit out of the way and a fair bit from Celtic Park, may suit the supporters bus if it ever gets down the road at a decent time :wink:

Yeah, though I don't know the place itself I know roughly where that is (cos I used to work in the East End). The 15 minutes is definitely not walking time!

I was born in Uddingston and lived there most of my life, my parents still live in that area so I know it very well. I've never been in the mailcoach but have been informed that it is a reasonably nice place which serves nice food. If you enter the postcode and look at the satellite image on google map you will see that right next to the mailcoach is a sand quarry, between that and the mailcoach is a landfill sight which stinks. If the wind is blowing the right way it's fine as the stench gets blown away from you but if it doesn't its disgusting. That's why I've never been in it. To make matters worse there is also a sewage works nearby, which to be honest only stinks occasionally, there is a crematorium to but thats ok. Prior to the landfill It used to be quite posh and exclusive and I got the impression that football supporters would not be welcome at any time. It's no short walk either, It's at least three and a half miles away from the selik park. The bus service would get you there ok but I would suggest that somewhere nearer would be a better bet for you.

Brilliant! I'm guessing you don't work for their marketing department.

I wonder if they'll respond to bigjohn's comments. Measured it on Autoroute at 4.5 miles so you'd be doing well to drive it in 15 minutes.

The aroma of landfill stench, sewage works and burning dead bodies isn't a winner for me either.

I genuinely feel sorry for the owners of the Mailcoach as it's not their fault and they are only doing what they can to generate business to keep the business afloat. The owners of the landfill apparently use the latest methods to suppress the smell but it still stinks. I drove past it last week on the M74 and it was rank. I'm not trying to drive away business from the mailcoach but would hate for you all to come down and have a horrible experience and then have about an hours walk to get to the stadium.
