Heard about this bar on a hop-on-off bus tour. Went back to find it- off the beaten path but worth the adventure. Great pub décor and atmosphere, longest bar in the world. Jim, the bartenderwas friendly, attentive and knowledgeable re brews and bar history.

Thanks so much for your 5 star review Curtis.

Yeah we can be difficult to find up a lane , however slap bang in the city centre and as you say we are worth finding haha.

Thanks for all your kind comments , we are glad Jim was able to help you out on the history of the bar and im sure in and around Glasgow itself .

Hope to see you again on your next visit to Glasgow.

Wife and I shared the Fish and Chips. Lots of fish and batter was light and tasty. Seems like everything needs just a little salt around here. My wife said the peas were a bit english. :-) Beer was cold and the fish hot. Good for lunch.

We had eaten at a nearby bar, and decided to pop in here to see if the Bar was just as good as it had been on our last visit over a decade ago!!
We were not disappointed!
We were served promptly by a lovely and very attractive Irish girl.
Three pints of Guinness came to only£9.75! £9.75 for the centre of Glasgow! Amazing prices!
We soon found a table and settled down to watch the football.
Lovely pub and a really excellent pint.
We simply couldn't complain!
On our next visit, we must try the food to see if that is as good as the last time.

good entertainment with karaoke, well run and organised, always busy ...few bad points .....food isnt anywhere as good as it used to be , also there is a new toilet attendant who is quite intimidating for money when you use the upstairs toilet, also they dont stock bullmers/magners flavoured or pear ciders or crabbies alcoholic ginger beer

Hi Jacqueline,

Thanks for taking the time to review us and leave your kind comments.
As for the toilet attendant - we did have some in on the key nights during December when we were going to be busiest. We felt like they helped keep the place neat and tidy - if you were uncomfortable at all we hope that you raised this with the manager on duty who would have been happy to help you.

As for ciders - we do stock a range of flavoured Kopparbergs which we hope you would enjoy! We change our range from time to time so hopefully the next time you are in you will find something you love!

Thanks again, see you soon!
