Tasty lunch with great cocktails

Visited here recently with my friend for a cheap and cheerful lunch with a few drinks. Was very surprised at how much I enjoyed it. We both had the chicken fajitas and sampled a few of the cocktails and was very impressed. I would definitely make a return very soon!

I loved the tiger prawn bruschetta...loads of tasty salsa with it. Everything we ordered was tasty. Not a fancy restaurant but had a relaxed, friendly atmosphere!

Went here with a group of friends and had a great night. The pub is very friendly with a relaxed atmosphere. The red onion and goats cheese tartlets are to die for......heaven on a plate. The live music was an added bonus. I would recommend here for a visit at any time.

This is a fab little bar again in the heart of Merchant City. Super wine and cocktails, and Guinness on draft for my husband. What more can we ask for! Friendly staff and good atmosphere.

Last time I was in was about two weeks ago! I love it here! They stopped doing mushroom bruschetta a while ago but every time I ask the chef always makes it! It's my favourite and I know it's probably annoying to make something that's not on the menu but I am very thankful they do it! So thank you... More

Initially seen this bar/restaurant online and decided to try it, The food was good, portions were an average size, the staff were very friendly specially the chap, i think he may be the owner or manager and,good ambience and there was live music in the shape of a band which were okay. Would go back again.

Starters of haggis tempura and Italian meatballs for myself came with a lovely fresh salad The mains were sirloin for the 'good lady' with fries and the aforementioned salad Me?

Came in on a whim... The background music (live)was provided by a group of multi-talented musicians playing a mixture of bluegrass and folk, with vocals provided by any one of the group - magical And then we ordered from the 2-3 course fixed price menu The food, from attentive staff to timely service was outstanding.
