The Scots Hoose
The Scots Hoose was a pub, now disappeared, at Cambridge Circus in London's Charing Cross Road, founded as "The George & Thirteen Cantons" in or before 1759, and later, by 1975, known as "The Spice of Life".
In the 1950s and 1960s it had one of Britain's most celebrated folk clubs in its upstairs room, run by Bruce Dunnet, that featured some of the greatest names of the folk revival, such as Bert Jansch, Al Stewart, Davey Graham, Ralph McTell, Roy Harper, Sandy Denny, Ewan MacColl and The Young Tradition. The club operated under various names, including "The Young Tradition".
