Some hae meat and cannae eat, And some wad eat that want it, But we hae meant and we can eat, And sae the Lord be thankit. - Robbie Burns

Gie him strong Drink until he wink,
That's sinking in despair;
An' liquor guid to fie his bluid,
That's prest wi' grief an' care;
There let him bowse an' deep carouse,
Wi' bumpers flowing o'er,
Till he forgets his loves or debts,
An' minds his griefs no more.
            --Robbie Burns 1759-1796

Final Musings

from Robbie Burns and the Proprietor

Things I feel...

This pub began as a seed in my heart a long time ago, a way to pay tribute to my late Dad. Now that it’s real I feel so proud, blessed and grateful. To quote Rabbie: "But to see her was to love her, Love but her, and love forever." PUB<3 4Ever!

Things I think...

In the face of crabbit posts and tweets, I think of Robbie Burns' sage remark: "Critics! Those cut-throat bandits in the paths of fame." We at McGugan’s are in this both feet and full heart! We are ardently on the path to fame! That said we know there are always things to smooth and improve. Bend our ears! We will listen. Be gentle and be constructive. And in turn, we will not cut you off or bounce you.

Things I hope everyone coming in our door can find...

"I want someone to laugh with me, someone to be grave with me, someone to please me and help my discrimination with his or her own remark, and at times, no doubt, to admire my acuteness and penetration."

God Bless Our Pub!
