Blantyre Pubs

Blantyre Pubs and Clubs

Historical and Contemporary Pubs & Clubs in Blantyre, Lanarkshire

An accurate list and definitive history of all 75 Blantyre Pubs, by their names, past and present is compiled here by Blantyre Project, telling their stories in detail, something never been attempted before. (Although other Blantyre Historians in the 1990’s have listed out about 30 before but put no history against it.) With 16 further Clubs and 3 Hotels, for the first time, exclusively researched here, a definitive detailed history of Blantyre’s Pubs & Clubs is told with fact, often illustrated, accessed below.

A illustrated, detailed history of all Blantyre’s Pubs and Clubs is being compiled for release in the forthcoming book, “Blantyre – Pubs & Clubs” by Paul Veverka for release in 2018.
