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.

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.
Beershine  (850) The Sunshine State, Florida | October 21, 2010
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.
