Visited on Friday 19th Feb 2016. Large old traditional ale pub a 5 min walk from Partick station. Large single room, plenty of levels of seating, large selection of ale on the blackboard plus a couple of keg offerings. Disappointingly the majority of the beer was from England and I’d tried a few of them but it was a good selection nevertheless.
Camra discount available. Service was good despite place being busy,
Would go back.

We visited The Three Judges on Thursday 18th June 2015. We came here after Brewdog and en route to Hippo Beers. The Three Judges is situated on a corner quite close to the Kelvinhall subway. Inside it is clear that this is quite a traditional Glasgow pub with cask ales very much the emphasis here. The beer choice was on a blackboard which was near the door where you enter. We weren’t that enamoured by the choice which to be quite frank was a tad disappointing, however the place seemed friendly, the lunchtime trade was brisk and on another day the choice might be a little more interesting.
Thanks to Tom for sending us here, and for introducing us to Ron--who has an encyclopedic knowledge of UK beer. During the day it was really mellow, and good to sit at the bar and chat with Ron. That’s why our experience was so good. The beer selection when we were there was ok, nothing special but all in good condition. All in all was the beer highlight of Glasgow.
A most excellent pub to get some English real ales. They had Brewers Gold Extra for us during the RBESG. The place also feels comfortable, a proper boozer that still attracts a varied clientele. The staff seems knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. A top Glasgow destination.
A pleasant, traditional pub located not far from the university campus in the west end of Glasgow. Has got an interesting range of nine cask ales, including ales from very local breweries. The beers I had were in excellent condition and served by an attentive staff. Busy early on a Thursday eve. They had got the meet the brewery sessions now and then, and was expecting the Titanic brewery the next day. Belongs to the Maclay Inns & Pub chain. In friendly company with local ratebeerians (visited, 12.04.2012).
The Three Judges is a good traditional pub with an emphasis on well-kept cask ale. They had 9 on offer with about 50% Scottish and the rest from elsewhere. The chalk board at the entrance will let you know what’s on offer. Good condition all-round. Selection wasn’t particularly varied in terms of style though. One of the best traditional pubs in Glasgow.
Great, comfortable boozer with an amazing selection of real ales for Scotland. Lots of British beers were on offer when I was there (Durham Temptation!), and lots of rare ones too. If Ron (the landlord) is there, you’ll be treated very well, and if RBians Tom and Gareth are there, you’ll have a great time for sure. If the selection is as eclectic and changing every week (which I was told it is), this would make it one of Scotland’s top beer destinations, no doubt. When I go back to Glasgow, this will be my first beery stop.
2014-06-28. Cool place, it feels more traditionally pub like than some places we’ve been in Glasgow. It is relatively small and gets quite busy after we arrive around 430. Not sure if that is to watch the World Cup or just Saturday busyness. 8 or 9 casks on, selection is just okay today, but a good variety nonetheless. Seems well kept. Fighting through the crowd to the bar or the toilet was a bit much at times but well worth a visit.
