Thank you for your feedback. Really sorry you didn't enjoy your recent visit. It was quite a big day for football in Glasgow and not a regular occurrence we can assure you. Really hope you come and visit us again!

I went into Bacchus for lunch, they had an good offer. I found food really tasty, especially the beef pie. The girl who served me was really kind and professional. The pub looked very tipical. I advise this place
