    Spent two nights here. Centrally located but on a quiet street. Best of both worlds. Rooms are basic but clean. Pub area is lovely and cosy. The people who run are very friendly and helpful. Love music trad sessions! Will be back in the future.

    Cool place right outside of the city center. Great selection of beers and great haggis. The owner, Fraser is a really cool funny chap who adds flair to the place also. Definitely a must top while in Glasgow.
