Visited on 3rd December 2016. Large ground floor, L shaped Spoons, decor was pretty tidy, place was packed with shoppers, only popped in as across the road from the State Bar. Decent cask beer range plus the usual craft offerings. Picked up a new beer that was low priced, well looked after and even served promptly. A solid Spoons.
JDW bu not nearly as good as Counting house when it comes to beer selection. They had 8 casks during my visit. Wasn’t very busy. Cheap. Bit depressing atmosphere, don’t see myself spending the evening here.
Ground floor Wetherspoon pub of a fair size taking its share of the spoils in what is a fairly vibrant area in the north-west of the city centre - there’s quite a few bars and restaurants in and around this part of Sauchiehall Street. Inside the ’L’ shaped bar stocks a decent selection of ales and there’s plenty of simple tables and chairs packed into the warm carpeted space.
Great selection of ales, ever changing. Under £2 a pint, only £1.65 during January. Quick, polite service, no music or tvs. Food is on a par with other bars of this type. Doesn’t seem to attract the riff-raff that some other city centre pubs do.
Maybe the most likable of all the JDWs I visited in Glasgow. This one is located in the outskirts of the city centre, very close to the famous State Bar. Long L-shaped bar offering eight interesting, different and well kept cask ales. Medium sized room, airy and clean. Polite service. Not particular busy just before noon on Thursday 12.04.2012.
