This has to be one of Glasgows best kept secrets! Had a great lunch, lovely food, great staff. A little bit of a walk from the centre of town but well worth it!!!

The food was nice, reasonable price with a wee dark atmosphere. The bar was cool but I didn't order alcoholic drink that day. Anyway, music was cool. I used Gourmet Society card for 50% discount too...super duper deal.
