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.
I find this a mixture of old and new - red brick walls and sports on tv. The service was OK, though a bit slow at times. The selection is great for a brewpub - 6 own beers on and more than 10 guest ales plus loads of bottled beers - among them continental beers I haven’t had. I had a very tasty haggis here at a very reasonable price. A must visit for the selection, when in Glasgow.
Nice big airy pub, trying to be old fashioned in the south side of glasgow, just away from Hampden park. Lots of their own beers and guests on either air dispense, tap or handpull - I was told to order by number, rather than name! Food was quite good quality and is of the usual fayre. Strikes me more of a foody pub than a beery one.
Rather modern place serving a wide range of bottles on top of 5-6 guest casks and 5-6 of their own beers. Basically, enough goodies to spend lots of time in theory, but the place is not as comfortable as most and their own beers, while trying some interesting styles, don’t fare too well on my rating scale. That being said, it would be worth the detour (about 20 minutes by train to Mnt. Florida at 1.70 Pounds for a return ticket from Glasgow Central) if you stayed in Glasgow for 3 days or so.
This bar has changed hands in the last 18 months. I think the food has improved since them. I generally choose their guest beers, as their homebrews tend to have that "too new" taste.
I had their last bottle of Cantillon Geuze today, I don’t think they are re-stocking it!
nice brewpub on the south side of glasgow. They have a selection of real ales from other breweries as well as their own, they are vacuum poured which makes the body feel a little dead to me, but aside from that the beer is excellent. very good, if pricey (Many of the belgians are not far off £5 a bottle), beer menu. Food is decent, all round a great pub.
A real gem just a short train ride from central Glasgow on the Cathcart loop. Get off at Mount Florida station from where it’s just a short walk. A great range of their own beers which are done to several styles including many continental. Also plenty of guest ales from around Scotland and the odd English one too. A lasting memory is starting to watch a Kilmarnock v Celtic game on the tv there whilst trying to go ’through the card’ and sample all the Clockword beers, needless to say I can’t remember too much about the match !
