One of Glasgow's old delights, traditional bar downstairs with eating upstairs, choice of dishes and ales all reasonably priced and wholesome pub grub. Handy for town centre and Central rail station. Breakfast recommendation.

Came here with 3 other couples, nice busy atmosphere and nice to be in a traditional pub instead of the trendy wine bar types. Had a few drinks then went upstairs for food, good choice of meals and very cheap. The food was quite basic...More
