Held my engagement party here last summer which I intensely regret doing. First of all it was during Pride and this pub seemed to be an absolute magnet for really really drunk half naked ignorant people. The bar staff were useless - we had booked off a section including extra tables which other people sat on and would not move... More

I lunched here with a group of retired men using a Groupon voucher and we all had a great time. The drinks were served quickly and everyone was very happy with the food when it arrived. I suspect the delay was due to my choice of the chicken tagine, but it was worth the wait.

I was looking for some typical local pub in Glasgow. I found this nice place according to good reviews. They are completely right. The staff was very friendly and recommended local beer and their special hamburger. Both were a great choise. Food was delicious and price was not so high. I liked this place and also the people working there.... More

Great place. Frequently visit for drinks with friends. Staff are all brilliant and so friendly and the live music is always great. Have eaten a few times and never had an issue. The food has always been great. Would highly recommend for either just a few pints/cocktails with friends or for something to eat. Cheers team Bacchus.

Visited this restaurant today and was very impressed by the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff working at lunchtime. My friend and I had different courses and we were spoilt for choice. The food was delicious and very well presented. Will definitely be back and will happily recommend it to others visiting or living in that wonderful city of Glasgow.

Lovely 2 course meal plus glass of wine all with a Groupon voucher. Johnny our server was great. Very pleasant and helpful. Top marks for service. Good choice and delicious food too. Probably would never have considered this place before but was given the voucher as a gift and I'm glad. We'll be back and will recommend to others.

Went here for a three course meal. Started off with the beetroot and goats cheese bruschetta, very tasty and fresh! I then had the steak pie which was very generously packed with steak. The deserts were average and it took a while to get a waiters attention for ordering drinks. But was overall a good experience and good price.

Thank ashley t
