Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

Over 200 whiskies to choose from, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and a great atmosphere. One of the best bars in Glasgow, if not scotland.

“Great pub with food”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

In Scotland you cannot beat a good Scotch pie washed down with a great Scotch whisky ... and so where better than our finest whisky pub, the Pot Still, in Hope Street, Glasgow. A wide range of whiskies, a limited (but tasty) menu plus some erudite banter from behind the bar. It is THE BEST!

“Fantastic Atmosphere and Choice of Drinks”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

I always pop into the Pot Still when I'm working in Glasgow, the friendly welcome and convivial atmosphere go perfectly with the range of excellently kept beers and the wide choice of spirits.

“One of Glasgow's finest”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

The Pot Still has been one of my favourite pubs in Glasgow for over 20 years. The pub offers an outstanding selection of whisky, but also a great selection of real ale and bottled beers. The proprietors and staff are clearly enthusiasts and have great knowledge about what they're selling and can make recommendations if you get stuck! They're happy to offer a taste of beer from the pump or a nose at a whisky before you commit. Food is limited to pies, so don't get your hopes too high. You'll receive a warm welcome here and experience an authentic Glasgow pub if you visit. Don't miss it.

“Perfect for whisky lovers”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

My boyfriend and I dropped in twice in one day, first for a pint and a quick bite and again at night for a drink. We were not disappointed and my boyfriend being an avid whisky fan was very pleased. It's great for everyone, even if you don't like whisky as its a cosy authentic friendly Glasgow bar with friendly staff and the best selection of whisky I've seen in Glasgow! Highly recommend it.
