Excellent beer and hugely surprised at how good the food was. Schnitzel excellent and atmosphere reminded me of time spent on a German holiday. Had German sausage to start which again was fab. Prices v reasonable. Hidden gem which has a lot more than just decent beer. Looking forward to next visit. V different to other places in glasgow

We booked a large part at the West Brewery for 22 of us, kids and dog included! (Clark party) What a meal! The service was exemplary, we almost had our own waitress who looked after us so well, drinks flowed and food came in good time, and hot - for such a large party this was excellent. Nothing was too... More

Whilst the beer is pretty good, and the restaurant food is super this place is totally let down by their awful policy on drinks outdoors. They pride themselves on their beer, but if you want to take it to their garden you must have it in a plastic cup. Or pay £5 for a glass deposit. Being treated as a... More

We found out about this place after I had the beer at another location. We had our 2 Boxer dogs with us and the owner had no problems about us bringing them into the restaurant. The service was friendly but not intrusive and the staff were happy to stop and chat. The dogs were brought a bowl of water which... More

This is a bit of a Glasgow secret! Without doubt one of the busiest (and best!) Pubs in Glasgow, it is only a 10 minute walk from the city centre. It has the best beer garden in the city (Glasgow Green - one of the cities largest parks), it's situated in the Templeton building (one of the most photographed buildings... More

Despite the misleading name, West is a gastropub set in the East End of Glasgow, just off Glasgow Green. They offer a wide selection of food and beers brewed according to German standards. The quality of both is very high and I thought that West's currywurst rivals some of those I had in Germany. It's a great idea for a... More

Been here more times than i can count and wouldn't go anywhere else for food, drink, or atmosphere. The WEST brewery prides itself on being as Bavarian as it can be. Great beers, brewed to Bavarian purity laws, and even better food - German, of course. Best place in Glasgow to go for food and drink if you are looking... More

Having heard about this place several times, we finally found a time to visit West. Not sure how it could easily reach there without a car, but we were lucky enough not only to taste authentic German beer but also to buy some bottles. We did not try food but it looked good. The building was also Bavarian in style,... More

A little bit of Germany in Glasgow, is how I'd describe it. The large hall, wooden tables and general decor, gives this impression. The beer is well chilled & food yummy too. It's another of our "must visit" places in Glasgow. Though popular, there's plenty of space and we have always got seating without booking ahead. It is located at... More
