You'll never get tired of finding some new drams to explore. A great selection of Scottish and German beers. Oh and if you get a bit peckish... They do a fine pie!

I try and visit this pub as often as I can, preferably when I don't have to go to work the next day! With a friendly and often bustling atmosphere it's a great place to be. It's no surprise that their selection of whisky is superb and they also have a range of other great beverages that you won't find... More

Not been to Glasgow for a few years but went on to auto pilot and found this place. I think it may have changed its name.. But maybe not. It's not a large pub but the staff are friendly, they have four ales, some kegs and a VERY large malt collection. Limited food menu.. but it's there to soak up... More

Passed this bar many times and didn't realise how good it is. The selection of whisky must be one of the best ever. Staff were very helpful in this busy pub. Some traditional pub food on offer but didn't try it this time.

This is a bar NOT a restaurant although limited pub food is available. It is an authentic old bar in the centre of Glasgow with a huge collections of whiskies. It is a great pub to visit. The staff are really friendly.

Hundreds of whiskeys. Lots of beers. And maybe some wine. The proprietor is amazing. For the uninitiated he will quiz you about your tastes, scurry about and find 4-5 choices that are all great. Smell them and choose. Fantastic experience. Highly recommend if you love whiskey or if you like a pub with great atmosphere.

Went in to have one last whisky on the evening. They have a great selection. Staff were nice to talk to. Easy location downtown to walk to. If you like the Bon Accord pub, I think you will like this pub. Sit in the main floor our hang in one of the upper balcony areas. Visiting from Vancouver, Canada.

This is fast becoming one of my favorites pubs, I had a cracking Balvenie 18 year old, must try. Good selection of pints and a wonderful Glasgow atmosphere in the pub. Give it a try and treat yourself to some lovely Scotch
