“Really nice pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Nice set up, close to Queen street station and served a mean fresh orange and lemonade! There was nothing really to dislike, seemed like a friendly place.

“great food & atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

The food served here was really good. (I've visited this pub several times and never been disapointed with it, even if I've ordered a bowl of chips or a balmoral chicken. The fish & chips are great too btw) The staff were polite & friendly and service was as quick as it could be at th ebar (even though it was really busy, it's so nice to see the bar staff being attentive and knowing who is next in line) Good place for anyone in a group or alone, you will feel comfortable.

Great to see you have visited us many times and we hope you will do so many times again. I must admit i also love the fish and chips but don't forget to keep trying our other dishes too. Always great to hear that the staff have been doing a great job, so thanks for the feedback and taking time to do a review on us.

See you again soon we hope.

“good music, good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

the food is delicious, the staff is friendly, and it's a fine location in the heart of Glasgow City. the many levels and different seating areas are intriguing too. what really makes the place for me, though, is the music, especially the informal sessions of traditional music on Sunday afternoons. all these factors put a distincive and welcoming Glasgow stamp on this restaurant for me.

We like to think our building offers something a little different to any place in Glasgow and try our best to have staff, food and music that reflects that. Great to hear people have had a great time with us and we hope you tell everyone to join you.

See you soon and thanks.

“Great lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Ate here at lunchtime with friends away for a 50th weekend break. Couldn't believe the size of the place when we went in, it's like a Tardis!!! Staff were quick to find the 10 of us a suitable table and the waiter was very attentive and provided brilliant service. Food very tasty and would recommend this to others.

Great to see we managed to get you all a table and you recieved great service from our staff. Glad you enjoyed your day out even if you may have gotten lost around the building a little. Its a bit like exploring a new place, each time you visit us you may find a new favorite place to sit and enjoy the day.

Thanks again.
