Had such an amazing experience! The smoked salon is the best I've ever tasted with the eggs benidict, wow! My son had the hamburger and chips with a lovely well thought out salad and dressing, very special. The puddings were all a mega treat! Nice relaxed chilled atmosphere and wuld definitely go back.

First time in this bar. The selection of drinks was actually quite good. However, you can't get a pint in there. They serve the lager or beer in a glass that almost looks like a flute you'd drink champagne out of but charge you the price of a pint. The bar was pretty atmosphere less. Wasn't that impressed overall and... More

Managed to find a parking space on Finnieston Strip and had a look round. Distill was nearest on the corner so, let's give it a try. Popped in and there were quite a lot of people already settled in enjoying drink and food and the general atmosphere was positive. Too late for breakfast menu but the lovely waitress pointed us...

I have visited here for brunch a few times with my husband and dog after a walk in kelvingrove. We have be delighted every time. I usually opt for the veggie breakfast which is delish - not your usually dried up quorn sausage but wonderful additions such as hallumi and home made Ragu. Last week I opted for eggs florentine...

Popped in for the first time for food couple of weekends ago. Can honestly say it was great. Walk by often and the evening crowd never appeals to me but so relaxed at lunch. Bloody Mary and your choice of food. Amazing, nice staff. We will be back for food

Studenty pub with limited menu. Handy for the Hydro, and noted/commented by the staff. Commented that Finnieston is the "new West End", but can't really agree based on this experience.

Hello Martin, The limited menu comment is a little confusing - We have 10 mains ranging from mussels to braised ox cheek, pork belly to polenta cakes but perhaps these are not to your taste. Regardless, thanks for taking time to review. More

Disappointed to see Distill is the latest pub to do away with pints in favour of 2/3s. Shame the price hasn't changed much of at all or it wouldn't be so bad. Won't be back in a hurry, despite my previous high thoughts.

You are reviewing... a glass... You're disappointed? I'm disappointed! It's a sad, small day when people have the time to write reviews about our glassware. Bigger things are happening. Incidentally - It's £3 for a schooner which, I can assure you, is far lower than the previous price for a pint of the same. More

Let's put our memories aside as let's forget about the great food and beer selection. Once the last bastion of sanity free from the finnieston tossed set. Distill now only serves beer in schooners.... end of.

'Let's forget about the great food and beer selection' - Let's not - It's why we're here! I find something slightly bizarre about commenting on the last bastion of sanity whilst simultaneously writing a review about glassware on Trip Advisor. More

We went here the following day after a gig. Nice and chilled with good tunes. Scottish Breakfast was lovely and all good quality, also eggs Benedict very tasty. Just what's needed the day after a sesh.
