Staff at the Bein Inn pub are celebrating after it was shortlisted for the UK Music Pub of the Year 2004. The Winner of the 2002 Scottish Music Pub of the Year, The Bein Inn, is among the last six UK pubs that will go head to head at the UK final in March. Owner Dave Mundell is looking forward to travelling to London for the ceremony, and is hoping to bring the title home.

"We are absolutely delighted to have reached the final," said Dave. "We're one of only six finalists and we have to attend the reception at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London in March for the result."

The Bein Inn has come to the attention of the organisers for its impressive gig listing over the past year. Its basement rock bar holds 60 people, yet it has hosted some of the best musicians of the last 40 years. They include John Hammond, Gene Parsons, Al Perkins, John Jorgenson, Curtis Stigers, Glenn Tilbrook, The Strawbs, Steve Gibbons, Henry McCullough of Wings and Benny Gallagher of Gallagher & Lyle.

Dave is a true music lover and the secret of his success is simple - he books quality acts who genuinely want to play his venue and therefore don't ask the earth as a fee and he also knows that true fans will pay the prices he needs to charge in order to see that quality in such an intimate setting.

In addition to hosting live gigs, the down- stairs bar at the Bein Inn is a veritable Aladdin's Cave of music memorabilia. The walls are plastered with stuff David has collected over the past 40 years.

They include concert ticket stubs, posters and framed prints, guitar scratch plates signed by the likes of Carlos Santana, Nils Lofgren, John Entwistle, Ry Cooder and Mark Knopfler, and guitars signed by Keith Richards and Jimmy Page.
