Social History

34 Courtney NE Blackwood Streets.

Robert Burns Hotel [27] 1865-1904, deprived (of its licence) 1904, used for a variety of purposes and now the Akita Restaurant.

The Robert Bums is named in honour of Scotland’s national poet (1759- 1796) who wrote the words of ‘Auld Lang Syne’ and the poem ‘Tam 0 Shanter’ which in turn gave names to two of the pubs noted back      at Stop number 4.

The Robert Burns was in business for 38 years and during that time had 22 licensees. On August 29th1865, it opened as a brick building of eight rooms. By 1904, there were 16 rooms but only two were open to the public.
