In the News 1972...
I find that one of the most difficult things to find in Glasgow is somewhere worthwhile to eat at lunch time without breaking the bank. Almost everywhere it seems to be the same dull story of convenience foods. That is why I particularly enjoyed a trip along to Maggie's Place at Paisley Road Toll yesterday. They have started a cold table, with hams, chicken, tongue, salads, pate, etc., at slightly under 50p.
The pub is run by Alastair Moreland, a former counties rugby player, and his wife Mary-Margaret. Pulling pints in the bar is Alastair's father, Russell, who played wing half for Queen's Park way back in 1921. It's worth a visit.
