Wonderful atmosphere of beer and whisky - hundreds of different whisky bottles lined the shelves. Not a restaurant. They do sell meat pies of varying contents - blood pudding, haggis, etc. and other snacky type foods. Order and pay at the bar with your drinks. The TV is above the door. No one watching.

We visited here after a recommendation on Twitter. City centre bar which is worth finding. More malt whiskies than you could ever count and great real ales. A great traditional pub.

Popped in for a quick drink and see what a pub in Glasgow is like - welcomed by the best bartender who recommended the best whisky and a pie. Had a wonderful time and will definitely be back

Lots of traditional decor and atmosphere. Really helpful bar staff gave quality guidance to a pair of single malt novices. Most enjoyable spirits, and a welcoming atmosphere.

Whoo what a selection, very helpful staff helped us select many of the different whisky's and gins. Lovely atmosphere in the pub, including a few dogs happily sat at owners feet. Highly recommend to visit if you're a lover of gin and whisky'
