Located in an old Bank of Scotland branch (we're talking flagship branch here, like headquarters) in a flamboyant domed hall with a huge bar in the centre. Best of all: Toilets and an adjacent craft beer shop are located in the former vaults, still equipped with massive steel doors. The range of beers on tap is vast, both standard Lager and Ale as well as craft. Food is reasonable. Service friendly and efficient. Enjoyed this place.
Visited on Friday 22nd Jan 2016. Huge Spoons with loads of nooks and crannies. Busy on a Friday night but got served quickly. Good range of local beers on tap which were well kept. Prices were low which was welcome after a long day.
Handily placed for Queen St station. Worth a look in as you might pick up a new rate or two.
Huge place just across the George Square. Was very busy during our visit. Very good selection of casks, 18 of them. Also some kegs including Brewdogs Fake Lager and one US craft. Very good prices. Not a bad place to visit for ticks.
The Counting House is Glasgow’s flagship Spoon’s. It is a truly gigantic establishment. It has an almost opulent feel about it due to the ceiling. The beer selection matches the size of the place - 18 cask ales in all, as well as some keg options, numerous bottles and bag in-box cider. I opted for some 7% Scottish cask ale action, as well as a bottle of Lagunitas IPA. As you might expect this place offers great value. I imagine it gets rather busy, but it was fine when we visited during the day. One of the best options for ticks in Glasgow.
My favourite pub in the Glasgow centre. Around 30 taps with always rotating brews - if you are a few days in town, you’ll find new beers nearly every day! Absolutely nice service and great food as well. They have 6 real ciders, but they were served out of a bag-in-box. And the old bank building creates a great atmosphere. Quite cheap compared to other Glasgow pubs!
Largest and grandest of the city centre Wetherspoon pubs in a fine bank conversion in the south west corner of George Square. It’s a fine place to drink with the ambiance of the building hitting home if you spend some time here, and there’s usually a high number of ales on offer too.
A crackin Spoons! Architecturally and interior sublime historic building, with a huge (and interesting!) array of taps. Just don't arrive too hungry cos u might be staying for several rounds. And lord knows u do not want to eat at a Spoons!
