Would just like to say what great customer service this young man has. We were very well impressed with him and he is an asset to the place. Keep up the good work. I would also like to nominate him for employee of the month if you do this. Thanks.

Terrible experience at this restaurant. We had lunch around 12p.m. The TV was very loud. We ordered and paid at the bar and waited for our food to be delivered. Bad food, tasteless. My friend had beef pie which was hard a rock. Who knows when was it cooked. The little beef that he found in the pie had no... More

Hi Teresa, Apologies if you felt the experience was not to your satisfaction - we have had an issue with the supplier on that particular beef pie and as a result we have completely refreshed our entire menu - we are so pleased with the improvement that we have a pie and pint night on Wednesday which has gone down...

The title says it all. The food was tasteful and propitious. Another plus: the friendly and patient staff!

This is my second visit to the Royal Scot, I came with some of my friends for some drinks and a bite to eat. I cannot recommend this place enough!! I had the lamb shank and it was to die for! My friends were amazed at how relaxed and chilled this pub was for the city centre. The beer garden... More

Recently called in, en route to the station, back to Manchester, personally I wasn't very hungry, and for some reason just fancied scrambled eggs on toast, this wasn't on the menu, but they offered to do it for me anyway! There was a lovely chatty guy behind the bar, called John, an absolute credit to your business, would definitely come... More

Formerly known as the goose this place has not lost it's friendly and pleasant atmosphere. As one of Glasgow's busiest pubs it's refreshing to find very capable and efficient bar staff on hand. If you are ever in Glasgow this is one place to make a point of visiting for a few refreshments.

Their website and google said this place opens at 9, didn't open until 10. If we were starving would have gone somewhere else. Breakfast was good, great price. My partner said the unlimited coffee for £1 was average, but couldn't expect more for £1! Will be back to try and burger and drink later during our stay.

Hi JLRPWA, Thanks for pointing out the opening times, we'll get on it right away! (Although we hope to be opening again at 9am very soon). Sorry about the filter coffee, we do cappuccino etc but it is a little more expensive - really glad you enjoyed your breakfast though and look forward to seeing you again during your stay... More
