Goodbye to the Illicit Still

Have your say

A WELL-known traditional Tollcross pub has closed its doors.

The Illicit Still on Brougham Street pulled its last pint over the weekend after a party for regulars.

The pub’s owners said the closure was due to the “very tough trading conditions” that face small independent pub operators.

Five years ago, the then owners complained its takings had plummeted by more than half after the smoking ban was introduced.
