I have visited here for brunch a few times with my husband and dog after a walk in kelvingrove. We have be delighted every time. I usually opt for the veggie breakfast which is delish - not your usually dried up quorn sausage but wonderful additions such as hallumi and home made Ragu. Last week I opted for eggs florentine...

Popped in for the first time for food couple of weekends ago. Can honestly say it was great. Walk by often and the evening crowd never appeals to me but so relaxed at lunch. Bloody Mary and your choice of food. Amazing, nice staff. We will be back for food

Studenty pub with limited menu. Handy for the Hydro, and noted/commented by the staff. Commented that Finnieston is the "new West End", but can't really agree based on this experience.

Hello Martin, The limited menu comment is a little confusing - We have 10 mains ranging from mussels to braised ox cheek, pork belly to polenta cakes but perhaps these are not to your taste. Regardless, thanks for taking time to review. More

Disappointed to see Distill is the latest pub to do away with pints in favour of 2/3s. Shame the price hasn't changed much of at all or it wouldn't be so bad. Won't be back in a hurry, despite my previous high thoughts.

You are reviewing... a glass... You're disappointed? I'm disappointed! It's a sad, small day when people have the time to write reviews about our glassware. Bigger things are happening. Incidentally - It's £3 for a schooner which, I can assure you, is far lower than the previous price for a pint of the same. More

Let's put our memories aside as let's forget about the great food and beer selection. Once the last bastion of sanity free from the finnieston tossed set. Distill now only serves beer in schooners.... end of.

'Let's forget about the great food and beer selection' - Let's not - It's why we're here! I find something slightly bizarre about commenting on the last bastion of sanity whilst simultaneously writing a review about glassware on Trip Advisor. More

We went here the following day after a gig. Nice and chilled with good tunes. Scottish Breakfast was lovely and all good quality, also eggs Benedict very tasty. Just what's needed the day after a sesh.

I've walked past this place lots of times, and only recently started going in during the day for a drink. It is a quirky little place, and a relief from the homogeneous aspiring-to-be-"upmarket" bars/eateries that have been springing up in the area, since the opening of the nearby Hydro (yawn). I haven't yet tried the menu at Distill, but friends... More

Sincerest thank you! Please make yourself know to the bar - there's a drink on us for sure! Having been one of the original units in Finnieston over 6 years ago we were determined not to be forced in to change by the, as you every so aptly put it, 'homogenous aspiring -to-be"upmarket" bars/eateries' that have appeared in recent times....

Great selection of cocktails and the bar staff were very knowledgeable. Sound system could have been better though

Buzzy place & although walking in you wonder the place is child friendly& staff all excellent and look after you well. Kids portions generous & fish curry special was lovely. Burger very good & decent local beers. Price reasonable as well.

It was our first time to the bar/restaurant so didn't know what to expect. We weren't disappointed, the food was delicious. The selection was really good and well varied. It was well presented and piping hot. And the staff were friendly and attentive. The bar was busy and noisy with it being a Saturday but the eating area was at... More
