My Great Great Grandmother was Granny Black, who ran the famous Granny Blacks pie shop at 35 Candleriggs.
I don't know of any connection between the two but I am curious. My Great Grandfather opened the Rabbie Burns at 153 Trongate in 1888, so I suppose there might be a bit of family expertise there?
Does anyone have any information at all about either pub? I know the Black family lived at various addresses in Candleriggs over the years, including Nos. 33, 35 and 75.
