Got told about the Horseshoe from someone we meet in another bar and had to see it , Well worth a visit just to see the longest bar in Scotland with great classic features and beer to match, the food was fine we enjoyed our visit as I'am sure you will as well.

We visited on a lunchtime. Good beer and wide variety of whisky. They sell food but didn't eat there. Good old fashioned pub.

This pub is well with a visit if in Glasgow. A traditional old mans pub with huge bar. The karaoke upstairs is well renowned too. Highly recommended for a chin wag with friends.

One of the best pubs in the city. The staff are always great. Pie and beans washed down with a pint makes for a great Friday lunch.
