Having tried the bar before eating in other places nearby we decided to give the KC a go. It doesn't disappoint if your looking for a friendly, busy place to have a lively get together while eating lovely gastropub style food. The ham hough on toast and pork skewers are delicious starters & the merques sausage/ haddock goujons mains are... More

We had originally popped into this place for drinks a few months prior and liked the vibe of the bar and also the great Gin Selection on offer. On return we booked a table for food and drinks, food was lovely and tasty and staff were also really efficient, friendly and polite. Again Gin choice was fab and a good... More

Nipped in here as we had been at the bike shed and it started to rain. We just had a couple of coffees. It was nice enough inside, the bar looked lovely but the arrangements of the seats were very strange. Other than the booths (all taken) the placement felt odd and a bit uncomfortable. Coffee was lovely though! Maybe... More

Hola Adventurers, We walked in and were greeted with an angry looking host...we made our way to the bar, passing 3 empty "reserved" tables, which the "host" made us aware that we could not occupy without giving a time for reservation. He was extremely rude and unwelcoming! I resisted and got a wine and a beer for myself and my... More

We walked in through the door to be greeted by a very bad mannered member of staff as she was clearing glasses from a table. She told us that they were busy and suggested that we found somewhere else. Which we did, and we vowed never to return which we stuck to as there were plenty of other more welcoming... More

This cafe was just a short walk away from my hotel (The Lorne), and was easily mine and my friends' go-to for breakfast, or a cup of tea or coffee. The staff was friendly, and the food was really good too! Highly recommend the traditional Scottish breakfast, vegetarian style.

Me and my boyfriend stumbled across this bar and we decided to go in for some food and drinks before heading to the hydro. Customer service was top class, so attentive and friendly. The food here was amazing and so reasonably priced!! Great atmosphere inside with so many amazing cocktails to choose from! I will definitely be back!

Walked in here before a concert at the Hydro. The staff were great. Great place to chill before a concert with good food and drinks. Well worth seeking out

Been in previously for drinks but this time we had food too, the KC burger was pork sausage, which was tender, juicy and had a nice chilli hit to it, my partners carbonara was a generous portion and was very nice with superb garlic bread. 2 mains with 2 G n T for £46 was good value too. All in... More

We popped in planning to just have a coffee but stayed to have breakfast. Great choices on the menu. Service was fantastic, lovely staff. I would definitely recommend for breakfast and would definitely go back if I return to Glasgow.
