Exclusive Online Publication
What is the National Guardian?
The National Guardian is a VERY valuable source for the licenced trade in Scotland. The National Guardian was published every week and contains news articles, pictures and stories about Pubs, Publicans and other licensed premises in the country.
The National Guardian was part of Dalross Limited and was printed at their Head Office at 82 Mitchell Street, Glasgow
Is the National Guardian Only About Glasgow?
No, the National Guardian covers the whole of Scotland, but there is a high amount of entries about Glasgow and the surrounding areas too. The articles about the rest of Scotland are still interesting because they often mention Glaswegian pubs and publicans or sometimes a photo of publicans that moved to a new area.
