Nia Roo

Nia Roo. 1991.

This was the brain wave of the Grier family, once a well known and respected family in the Scottish Licensed Trade. The strange thing is that you still hear the name Grier popping up now and again in Glasgow pubs when you listen to the older generation reminiscing.

The name Nia Roo spelt backwards is Oor Ain, with Glaswegian's this means Our Own pub.
