The Royal Mile Tavern was built on this site in the early 1800s following a fire which destroyed the original tenement block.
At the height of the fire the building collapsed, trapping many families inside. A rescue mission ensued to release the trapped victims. With all know people accounted for the rescuers decided to call off the search for any more survivors.
As they were leaving the site a faint cry was heard
"Heave awa' lads, am no deid yet!"
Following more digging a young boy by the name of Jamie McGregor was pulled free of the rubble.
Please take a seat. We will be pleased to serve you at your table
