The Auld Hoose, Main Street, Cambuslag was demolished in 1929 to make way for a new cinema The Savoy at a cost of £22,000.

Giacinto Minato died in 1912 he was the landlord of the Auld Hoose, Cambuslang. He was a well-known figure in town and a popular man. He spoke several languages including, German, French, Italian and of course English, he was only 63 years of age when he died.

Hello John.
On your web site of old Glasgow Pubs, I note you have James Minato Lochead
as licence holder of the Auld House.  I suspect it was in fact my great aunt
Janet (Lochead Dyer) Minato who held the licence (probably just a misprint).
She was the second wife of Giacinto Minato and after she died in 1929 I
understand the pub was demolished to make way for the Savoy cinema.
Janet had been born Janet Lochead Dyer on 10 June 1855 at Locheadsland,
Cambuslang and her father, and grandfather (both James Dyers) had been
spirit merchants/grocers in Cambuslang since the early 1800's, possibly
always at, or close to, the Auld Hoose.
Janet had married firstly a James Scott, a Spirit traveller from Westray,
Orkney and he died in 1894 at Locheadsland, Main Street, Cambuslang, where
after I believe she ran the pub.  She then married Giacinto Minato shortly
thereafter between 1895-1901.

Cheers Colin.
