Are you looking for a friendly local boozer serving real ale, a darts team, a pool table, or somewhere to hold a party or private function? Or are you just interested in the origin of the UK's pub names?
A Tolbooth (or Town House) was the main municipal building ("town hall" in modern parlance) of a Scottish burgh, from medieval times until the 19th century. A tolbooth usually consists of a council meeting chamber, court house, customs office and/or gaol (jail). Pubs named Tolbooth are sometimes found in, adjacent to or close by these old buildings.
