Good things come in threes at The Three Judges pub at Partick Cross. Last month it won its second award from CAMRA – the Campaign for Real Ale – and it celebrated ten years of its resident Sunday jazz band – Muldoon’s Rag Time Band.


Alistair Boyd from CAMRA presented manager Angela Bradley with the coveted Glasgow Pub of the Year 2008 title. Only weeks before, the pub was named CAMRA’s Scottish Cider and Perry Pub of the Year 2008.

 Angela, who took over as manager in January 2008, told the Local News: ‘I’m over the moon to have scooped a second award so early in my bar managing career. The competition was of an exceptional standard so it really is an honour to win. It’s quite a change from working as a park ranger at the Botanics! And I’m loving every minute of it.’

On the night of the Pub of the Year presentation, each customer was offered a complimentary pint of cask ale on arrival. Added Angela: ‘Credit goes to the whole team. They have really pulled together and continue to deliver excellent levels of service and dedication to our customers.’

The Three Judges beat off stiff competition from pubs including The State Bar, Blackfriars and the Bon Accord to win the prestigious title after continuous monitoring and mystery visits from the Glasgow and West of Scotland branch of CAMRA.

A favourite with real-ale lovers, the Three Judges has enjoyed a long-term reputation for its varied range of regular and guest beers, and was awarded a bronze medal by leading UK licensed trade body The Publican for the Best Cask Ale Pub in 2006. The place to go for a combination of quality and choice, the pub has served over 5,000 different cask-conditioned ales from across the UK over the past fifteen years.

Angela threw another party to mark ten years of jazz on Sundays from Muldoon’s Rag Time Band, ‘It was a great night!’ said one customer who remembers most of it.
