I lived in Edinburgh from 1971-1977 and was a regular customer of the Oxford Bar when its owner Willie Ross did not countenance food. On one occasion when some poor deluded soul asked for crisps Willie came out from behind the bar,his customary Capstan Full Strength in mouth, and took him outside; pointing at the facade of the howff he asked pointedly, 'Where does it say restaurant?'
