I had hopes of Rogano for a classy supper but I was let down on three grounds. First, there was no cayenne pepper anywhere to go with my plate of smoked salmon. Secondly no alsatian wine was available by the glass or half bottle out of a modest range. Finally although I had enquired in advance about a cigar bar... More

Visiting this bar is like stepping back to a time of art deco. Really chilled bar area and good formal dining

Good list of cocktails but somewhat bemused as the bar staff struggled to provide the smoke for the "Smoke On The Clyde" cocktail that we ordered. Have to say a bit disappointed in this cocktail for the price paid (£12.50). Was worth... More

Visited Oyster Bar on a busy payday Friday night to use some Itison vouchers. £9 for a flight of 4 drinks is a great deal in our opinion so we bought 2 vouchers. Tried a variety of gin and whiskey with Glenmorangie 12 being my favourite. The prices on the regular menu are a little steep but considering how good... More

Been in here a couple of times in the past month. Got the oysters and a few cocktails. It is a blast from the last but a really nice atmosphere. Been before for a meal which was really nice, and great wines
