I stopped here for a beer whilst in Glasgow the staff were alright but nothing special as was the experience drinking here

This historic bar is only 1 1/2 blocks from the train station...the staff are extremely friend...the drinks are very affordable...in an ad it describes itself as "a relaxed gay bar in an authentic Victorian pub"...I couldn't agree more!
