"The Bar across the road from Rutherford's was Stewart's.  It now has a fancy name, like the 'Rat and Carrot'.  So all and sundry now use Rutherford's or the Captains Bar or other haunts in the Southside."

I like your new name for 'Stewart's Bar', Eric!  I went to see it last week and found that, in fact, it changed its name about six years ago, to become 'The Brass Monkey'.

Here is a photo of it, taken last week:
