We visited Blackfriars on a Thursday early evening. Even though it was early the bouncers were out front and the place was pretty rammed. Had a fairly rough-around the edges feel about it. They has small, but interesting cask ale selection, This is supplemented with about 50 bottles from UK/Europe/US. Service was prompt and friendly. We just stayed for a quick one as it was too busy and a bit lively for my likely. Perhaps would be better during the day. Alright, but there are plenty better beer destinations in Glasgow IMO.

2014-06-27. Nice place, our first beer stop in Scotland! Friendly server, it has a pub meets cafe impression to it. Our food was good and seemed reasonably priced - Mac and cheese and a steak "pie" (aka. stew with puffed pastry on top). Some decent real ale options. Got fairly busy shortly after we arrived on a Friday afternoon. Would come back but the appeal will laregly vary according to the tap list, which rotates.

A good pub with 4 real ale pumps and a selection of draught continental beers such as Krusovice, Weihenstephan, Birra Moretti and more. The pub has a decent selection of malts and some bottled beers .The drinks are a bit on the pricy side but other than that a good pub.

Not a bad place, about 5 real ales on cask, and some nice bottles. Friendly service. The food is also better than expected.

An interesting bar in the centre of the city, with a traditional ale and craft beer selection taking in many Scottish ales, German weissbiers and a nice selection of American craft beer! A very popular and busy bar however there is a nice atmosphere with welcoming staff. A top pub with a cracking selection!

My favourite pub in Glasgow. Good location, great selection of real ales and american beers, the service is great even when is really busy.
And they serve bottles of beer in a wine glass.

Sits in the middle between a traditional ale pub and a craft beer pub. 5 taps that focus on local(ish) ales (Inveralmond and Orkney currently on heavy rotation), coupled with a fridge full of interesting craft bottles from the likes of Stone, SWB, Magic Rock etc. Surprisingly good value considering it’s location in the heart of the Merchant City. Food is burger-centric, but decent and reasonable value also.

Divided into three sections; a dining room and a cafe with a traditional pub in between. Five Scottish cask ales from breweries like Tryst and Kelburn, one brewdog on tap, and some interesting bottled beers in the fridge behind the counter, more than usual for a place like this. Has got a rough and rocky image. Central location. Polite service. Busy on a Friday afternoon, 13.04.2012.

This is one of the best real ale pubs in Glasgow. Whenever you are in Merchants City, pay a visit to this place and you won’t regret.
