This place is really good! The service we received was chilled but attentive and the food filling and yummy.

There is nothing over the top or particularly exciting about here, but that doesn't mean it wasn't perfect for grabbing some lunch on a Saturday afternoon in town.

Will definitely pop back for some food if I'm running about and want to grab a quick bite.

Another 'Auld Gits' day out! Planned to eat at the Universal next door but were re directed to its 'sister' next door! Comfortable seating, usual pub menu satisfied our needs! Fish n chips was the favourite and it was excellent! Usual Glasgow beers on tap to wash it down!

Used to go here quite a lot but had not been for a while, I won't be back. It was freezing and we were told the heating was broken. A small heater was not switched on and even if it was it could not heat the room.
Meal was poor and the coffee cold.
Sad as this was once a really good place to meet and relax

great little place for work group lunches or after work nibbles and drinks. Service is always quick and friendly. Great sharing platters if there is a group of you. Perfect little place on a Friday for some pre club drinkies

Four of us visited the bar for drinks and a snack. Food was basic, no frills and staff were pleasant. However, we were soon to notice a small cockroach running up and down the wall behind us. We pointed this out to a staff member who killed it and wiped it away with a handkerchief commenting that it was "disgusting". We decided at this point not to stay for more drinks and asked for the bill. The staff member commented that we could have gotten money off our bill had we found the cockroach actually IN our food. Enough said. We won't be back!
