A very nice traditional Pub in a good location in the middle of Glasgow contained in an interesting building. Very clean with a good selection of beers. Worth popping into for a drink.

This public house is in the style of an 'old' 1920s American style bank, with a good atmosphere. Although we only called in for a drink at lunchtime the food that we saw being served looked good. The staff were friendly - but I did...More

I'm not sure as not a 'regular' Jill. They do have a big screen which I believe is mostly tuned to sports so it's a possibility. May be best to give them a call.
