“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Came here with a group of people. It's right down a random wee lane off sauchiehall street.
Food was quite nice, had a massive burger which was accompanied with soggy large wedges, I was expecting chips. Wasn't overly cheap for food and drink. May visit again but not a first choice.

“Best value in Glasgow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Had the £5 beer and burger lunch yesterday. Lovely beefy burger with salad and wedges and a pint of Stella. The young waitress/barmaid was very pleasant and efficient.
Will definitely return.

“Lovely food in a secret street !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Good food at very reasonable prices , with a really great varied menu . Tucked away just a few streets away from either the Pavilion Theatre or The Kings Theatre it's a great place for pre theatre food and drinks .

“Lovely cosy wee bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Went for a quick lunch before work training and we both enjoyed our food. The beer and a burger deal was good for £5 however I ate from the main menu and it was over £10 for chicken strips chips and a glass of juice which I thought was too pricey.
That said it is a lovely wee bar in an in appealing location and was pleasantly surprised.

“Undiscovered gem?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Sitting halfway along a fairly unappealing lane, this snug little bar is cosy and intimate. Well priced drinks and straightforward but attractively priced bar food add to an eclectic mix of clientele, you're as likely to rub shoulders with students or hipsters as shoppers taking a break from spending on nearby Sauchiehall St. One of the friendliest batsmen in Glasgow went out of his way to make my visit enjoyable.
