Cheap and cheerful student bar

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... read 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

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

As a restaurant, I love Walkabout. Great selection from the menu, prompt and friendly service and brilliant food. Perfect for trying something new! Great atmosphere for meeting with friends. As a student bar it's ok, pricey considering it's a student bar. Good for society/club nights out.

Walked into Walkabout and didn't know what to expect. Full of young people many students, loud music so hard to have a conversation but food excellent. This is an excellent place for young people, enjoyed it but wouldn't go back - too old!!!!
