Unfortunately didn’t live up to expectations, as the selection was really boring when we were there and the interior doesn’t have much personality. However, the service was friendly and the coming soon/racked beer list had some good options. Must have been a spot of bad timing.

I visited this place at the heart of the RBESG, so the atmosphere was of course very good and Tom had made sure that the casks included some goodies. My rating can only reflect this and may therefore be a bit more generous than the place deserves, but the fact remains that there was brewdog paradox, a 10% whisky barrel-aged imperial stout sold at 2.75 for a pint from the cask and that the staff went out of their way to ensure we have a good time. A mundane, popular hangout. The food was also amongst the best Scottish I’ve had after 4 days in Scotland.

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.

Visisted four days in a row at my visit to Glasgow for RBESG. Some hard to get cask ales on, and a decent rotation, so it is worth coming back every-other day. Also a pretty good bottle selection. The service was friendly, though a bit slow on packed Thursday and Friday nights. Quite packed and noisy on Thurday and Friday night. Excellent food.

Good location in trendy merchant city area of Glasgow. 5 well cared for real ales on tap, chosen either because they are brewed locally or are nationally rated. Interesting selection of American bottled beers. Can get quite busy after work on Fridays and at weekends. One not to miss for visitors to Glasgow.

Visited 28/06/09. Great beers on offer from Dark Star, Kelburn, BrewDog and Inveralmond. The service was helpful and efficient, with tasters being offered as routine. Locals around the bar were friendly too. An excellent pub with a relaxed atmosphere.

Great place, made even better with Tom putting on all the extra beers. The food was splendid, too. I’ll make this my firt stop the next time I’m in town!

Visited during RBESG 2007. Some nice beers on tap, but not a huge selection. Maybe a bit too crowded when I visited on a late Friday evening, but otherwise just nice. I will be back, Tom...

Quite liked this place, though it’s a bit confusing. It seems like a relatively downmarket pub trying to do the posh gastropub thing in the corner which lent it a weird vibe, but once you’re in position it seems fairly normal. Good service, good food and a strong selection of beers with a focus on the BrewDog and the American in bottles (e.g. they had a Victory promotion going when I was there).
