A really excellent selection of beers & decent, knowledgeable staff advice. Expensive although not overly when compared to other pubs & bars near by. Would go back just for the collection of beers available on-tap, one of the most varied in Glasgow.

Unfortunately didnít live up to expectations, as the selection was really boring when we were there and the interior doesnít 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.

Absolutely superb. Timely visit last night, after the Babbity Bowster nearby. Pub rocking with a lively clientele of all agegroups, and an all-Scottish range of five ales, all well kept and including a sublime Brewdog IPA. Service was quick and local drinkers very friendly. Reasonably priced beer, with everything of 5% or less at £2.90, strong beers at £3.20. Crowd at weekends can be noisy at times, but not so loud as to be uncomfortable; recorded music was at an agreeable level. Live music and comedy acts staged: check with the pub for further details. Recommended.

Quite liked this place, though itís 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 youíre 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).

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.
