Went to this bar whilst visiting Glasgow a couple of weeks ago. Altogether, seemed like quite a nice bar with a busy jovial feel to the place. That was fine until I had the misfortune to encounter perhaps the worst bar person I have met...More

I stopped here for a beer whilst in Glasgow the staff were alright but nothing special as was the experience drinking here

This historic bar is only 1 1/2 blocks from the train station...the staff are extremely friend...the drinks are very affordable...in an ad it describes itself as "a relaxed gay bar in an authentic Victorian pub"...I couldn't agree more!
