Busy wee pub in the West End. Wine is rubbish so stick to beer and spirits. Great atmosphere though.

Snug, cosy, welcoming, unpretentious wee bar in fashionable Ashton Lane. Reasonable prices, £5 lunch offer for staples, ie macaroni cheese etc. Barmaid was very genuine and friendly.

A typical city centre pub. Great atmosphere, friendly service and good craic. No live music when we were in. I would imagine the place would be really rocking on a music night.

Absolutely nothing Irish about this place. I’m guessing it’s some chain’s concession to Irishness but if you’re in Glasgow looking for a somewhat remotely realistic Irish pub, please go elsewhere. Overpriced, basic and trading in its location rather than anything it’s actually able to offer....More

Its a typical pub in a popular part of the West End. Was only in for drinks and there was no table service so you have to go up to the wee bar and do your own order and delivery to your table

That is disgraceful - If me, I would go in the afternoon and ask the manager for an explanation. Prehistoric doormen are not needed or wanted.
