Occasionally, we like to loosen the tongues of our regulars (and bar team) with a couple of nips, before asking them to answer a few leading questions about their life in and around The Larachmhor Tavern. It would be a shame to waste such great banter, so in a series of Q&As, we're asking our regulars and local characters to commit their stories to print, right here....

You must have plenty of memories in this pub - things you've seen, tales you've told, tales you've been told! Is there a good story or memory you're willing to share with the whole bar (and world)?
I can remember, many years ago, Bob Long - the owner at the time - coming out of here at 5am in the morning walking up the wynd to go to his house and dropping the till. All the money went flying up the wynd!! He was as drunk as the customers!! Lol!
Dry Martini. (Micha interrupts: No it isn't... it's a pint of Ice Cold Tennants)

Get your coat, you've pulled!

Feck all...but the banter's good!
Additional comments from others at the bar during interview:
