Visited twice during RBESG 2007. General impression: what the others said. Limited but nice selection of cask ales and some decent bottles. Good food.

RoyceH  (32) Hesperange, Luxembourg | August 26, 2007
Visited for RBESG, hit this place on the first night. They had some cracking ales on, stuff I hadnít seen on the rest of the Glasgow pubcrawl, and of course the Brewdog Paradox, which had been brought in specially. A few brewdog bottles too. A little expensive, and can get a bit busy at peak times, but so does anywhere. Cracking alehouse, very accommodating, and somewhere Iíd definitely go back to!

Rastacouere  (664) Montreal, Quebec | August 26, 2007
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 Iíve had after 4 days in Scotland.

Nuffield  (108) Roseville, Minnesota | August 3, 2007
Good selection, including some of the more unique Scottish things that are only available in bottles. Three handpumps, I believe. I went twice, and found it a good place to dive in for a drink. The atmosphere isnít awesome--your typical pub, irregular lighting. But itís in a decent corner of Glasgow that was convenient to the University of Strathclyde.

GarethYoung  (26) Glasgow, Scotland | September 20, 2006| Updated January 31, 2007
A decent pub, a few local cask ales on and a modest bottle selection but its nice to be able to buy Orval in a pub. Its pretty expensive since its in the dreadful merchant city, this can also cause the place to have more wankers in it than I am normally comfortable with. Overall not a bad pub, some nice malts as well.

Maybe bias because its my local. A great little pub very lively and sociable. Decent sellection of world beers though a bit pricey at times but still one of the places i go more than anywhere else.

Gazza  (163) Worcester, England | September 6, 2006
Great, lively little bar in a bountiful area for real ale in general. Five beers on the bar with most being Scottish micro beers; very few English beers make it here! The customers are students and locals and the whole ambience is very sociable and welcoming. Beer prices are high but that comes with the area, unfortunately. There used to be a brewing Firkin over the road!
