Fin  (904) Merton, Oxfordshire, England, England | July 1, 2015
We visited Blackfriars on Thursday 18th June 2015, we’d had a lovely mini pub crawl staring at Brewdog and then many in between, eventually moving over to the east of the centre taking in the excellent Drygate prior to ending up here. Blackfriars was very much a traditional pub compared to the Brewdog and Drygate who are the more modern new kids on the block. It is situated on a corner in a busy little area for food places and bars, quite a few larger chain offerings around here though. It was really bustling, the afterwork crowd had started to arrive and it was a good male and female mix with a slightly older demographic than the aforementioned bars. Beer choice was predominantly cask, handpump but a little more limited than I was expecting, we both settled for an Oakham Inferno which was in good nick. I never had a particularly good walk of the pub to see how many rooms, layout etc but it did seem quite a good size, what appeared like one large room we sat near the windows at the front, I seem to recall this was a raised area, a group of blokes all young pensioners sat on a neighbouring table all drinking beer and having a good catch up, it looked like they were regular drinking buddies. I quite liked this place, the staff were busy but friendly in fact you could say, much like the pub overall.

Visited on Friday 22nd Jan 2016. Walked from Argyll St station to this place. Located in a cool part of town, this is a large pub, plenty of tables and I was shocked at how easily I got one. Thought it would be heaving. Beers from Swannay were featuring on tap, decent little list of bottles too and tried some Mad Hatter boost. Prices not too bad for the location, service was really good and friendly. Stayed for a few beers as I liked it. If you fancy the stroll to Drygate then this is on the way and a good stop for a rest.

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.

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.

This pub I can advise you to look for. Absolutely a nice selection on tap. Did not check out the bottle selection. Quite crowded on a friday evening. Still quite fast and proper service. Traditional brown british interior. Nice and clean.

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...

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.

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.
