Here on a Friday night, so probably busier than usual. Great friendly atmosphere. Apart from their own beer there are only sterile megabrewers brands, eg Stella, Peroni, Guinness. But the Clockwork brews are pretty decent. I tried the Oregon IPA which was proper sweaty, then the Amber Ale, which seemed like a good sessionable ale.
In the shadow of Hampden Park, this sterile yet lively brewpub serves a mixed and respectable clientele. Celtic v Hearts are on the telly this afternoon so understandably that plays second fiddle to the beer at the moment. The beer consists of ten casks, eight of which are Clockwork beers. Nothing too amazing and mostly sessionable strength. A bit of keg (including another Clockwork) and some bottles (more Clockwork but nothing not on cask; Williams Bros; BD core range). Reasonably priced for food. Worth a stop if in the area. I imagine this gets rammed on match days.
Visited on 22nd Jan 2016. A little walk from Mount Florida station and you arrive at The Clockwork. Large single room, glass roof over the dining area, Brewery visible opposite the bar what’s not to love? 9 of their own beers, some better than other and 2 guest casks plus a couple on Keg. Craft beer bottle fridge with Drygate on offer plus others. Service was great. Had lunch here which was delicious. Only gripe is the tasting flight is £3.65 whatever you have. Not great value is you want all the beers to try including those with lower boost. Still a great place to visit.
A brewpub located in the suburbs south of Glasgow. I paid about £7 for a taxi from the Central Station to the pub and took the bus (no.36 or 38, I think) back. Five of their own beers were on, including the new one called Mount Hood, and they were nicely served on a sample tray at my table. For food I had Black Pudding & Apple with Warm Bacon which tasted ok. Long L-shaped bar with quite a good range of quest ales and bottled beers. Nothing that special with this place or their ales, however, I did not regret taking the trip (visited on a Thursday afternoon, 12.04.2012).
Visited in June 2010. Big, open pub with plenty of people watching the world cup on TV. Tried three Clockwork beers and they were ok. Service was brisk and efficient. Worth visiting but I am not sure I would make the journey from central Glasgow again.
Have visited this establishment a number of times over the last few years and found it "interesting". The decor is quite nice, it has a good selection of beers including their own brews and has a lot of large screen TVs showing different sports channels. The food menu is good and the staff pleasant and friendly so what more do you want? Problem is that the quality of the food and beer is very variable. At times it has been terrible other times quite good. At the moment it is good so hopefully it will stay like this. Close to Hampden Park, my church and mother-in-law, this is a place I want to love but it would be more accurate to describe my feelings about it warm to cold.
I was disappointed with this place, which I’d been meaning to visit for years and missed on several trips to Glasgow. I wasn’t in the best of moods as I’d just got soaked in a downpour, but the bar staff were surly and disinterested. It was mid-afternoon and the place felt cavernous and unwelcoming, with flat screen tellies blaring away, and to top it all my Amber IPA was off, end of barrel yeasty vinegary soup, but they’d already made me feel they were doing me a favour by serving it and I didn’t want to risk further grumpiness by taking it back. I just left. I might be back to give them another chance but with more central and much friendlier places in Glasgow to tempt me it’ll be a tough call.
