I was expecting quite a lot bigger range of draft craft beers and was little disappointed because of that, they how ever have some bottled craft beers available. Looks to be quite ordinary pub where you can have some decent food with local beers.

It's just a pub, but actually, what more do you need. No Frills. Good draughts, and the PD space downstairs is very good for parties too

We came here to sample some of the excellent local ales and were not disappointed. There was a quiz on which we entered but were hopeless, but had a fabulous time with the very friendly quiz master in this great "Proper Pub"!

This is the place to go if you like to taste local craft beers. Yes, you find a lot of places in Glasgow to have a drink or two, most of them full of noisy youngsters and tourists. In here, you’ll find local families and...More

We serve what we love - quality beers from around the world and high-calibre home-cooking. We also have a passion for live music and regularly play host to some of the most talented bands in Scotland (and occasionally from farther afield). But most importantly, we believe in a high standard of customer service - a welcoming atmosphere, attentiveness and of course, getting your pint in a timely manner (we know you're thirsty)!
