I popped in here while visiting Glasgow, for a quick pint. It was quiet and had a friendly atmosphere, and a good selection of cask beers on. Not a particularly memorable pub, I wouldn't go out of my way to go again, but it was...More

Description
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)!
