Bit overpriced

Popped in for some lunch. Not the greatest of menus as I just wanted something simple and quick so I opted for a burger. Food was ok. Overpriced for what it was. There was no real service as such as the bar staff looked like they'd rather be anywhere else. I'll opt for burger king next time.

Stopped in by Walkabout enroute from CitizenM. Good food and service was good too. Good location if you wanted to watch any sports as have multiple screens.

Been a few times and decided to take the kids in on a quiet Sunday afternoon for a quick bite to eat before the cinema and we were turned away as they do not have a license for kids. Never knew this and for such a well known place hopefully they sort this out and allow families to dine!!

Don't get me wrong, it is a good enough pub, lots of TV screens showing local football (aka soccer), great staff, friendly and courteous, and the food was okay. But the only Australian items I spotted were the dust covered flags which could have done with a hoovering! Standard pub grub, weird salad with watermelon?!? Apparently we all drink Fosters... More

This place has been here for many many years, holding up as a venue for music as well as live sport. The place needs a good clean and refurbishment, has done for a while now. The food can be poor to great it must depend on the chef/cook you get. They do have a good selection of beers on tap.... More

popped in for a snack before going to the cinema. I had the potato skins which were fine but there really could have been more than 2. Decent salad but why serve on a small wooden board with everything crammed in. Was with some friends who did not mind getting a wedge of watermelon as a garnish but to pretty... More

I've been here numerous times. It's an ideal starting point for a day out in Glasgow. It also shows a good selection of sport. Decent bar menu of normal burgers and pastas etc. On the downside, there are a lot of stag/hen parties passing through, which although always noisy but well behaved , May not be for everyone.

We liked the security at the door. Very friendly and informative. Unfortunately the bar itself was pretty dirty and tired. Such a disappointment after visiting a great Walkabout in Carlisle at the end of last year. The staff were not really interested in serving politely or efficiently. Avoid

I received an e-mail from this pub with the chance of sampling a "free" burger and fries, as part of their 20th anniversary celebrations. I went at about 1400 on a Thursday afternoon. It was very quiet. As a result I was served promptly and had a good choice of tables to sit at in the bar. My burger came... More

I visited walkabout on a Thursday evening so it was quite quiet. I easily found a table in a quieter spot as people were watching football. A staff member came out as soon as we arrived and cleaned/wiped down all the tables. At first we just ordered a few drinks when I went to the bar I asked for a... More
