    Fabulous experience
    I would most definitely advise a visit to Drygate. Great food, drinks and atmosphere. The wonderful staff, led by Ricky, recently catered for over 20 adults (the oldest being 87!) and 5 children at my son's 40th birthday celebrations, they looked after us with a smile and a joke.. and we will certainly be back. Congratulations and thank you for a job well done. Elaine

    Top Drawer ...
    Went with my craft beer-loving son on the tour. Friendly and informative guide took us through the process followed by a selection of beers to sample. Unrushed and relaxed. The beers are 'top drawer' with all of the stouts ... absolute gems!

    Excellent for lunch
    Close enough to town for a business lunch although the on site free parking was a bonus for those who needed. Friendly, welcoming, attentive staff serving generous platefuls of delicious food (beef dripping chips were a hit!) and drinks. Definitely will be back.

    PURE DEAD BRILLIANT
    Spontaneous visit to Drygate, hadn't booked, we had a warm welcome from the staff member at the door who gave us a nice table and served us. I've been to Drygate quite a bit over the years, it felt a bit friendlier this time. I was indecisive choosing which beer to order, he offered a couple to sample - really friendly and helpful. Ended up staying longer than planned, ordered the chicken burger with truffle & parmesan fries. EPIC is the word - turned out to be the best burger I've ever had. Big portion of chicken, perfectly cooked (chargrilled), with Swiss cheese. Fries were delicious. Great service, fantastic beers and delicious food 👍🍻🍔

    Good Food
    A meal at the Drygate was bought as part of the Wellpark, Tennents brewery tour. We were given a nice welcome by the staff member and he explained the meal choices available to us as per the deal we had. There was a really good choice and both starters and main courses were excellent. Portion sizes for mains were quite large but we really enjoyed the fish and chips and the Thai red curry. Everything about the place was spot on and we will return in the future. If you are doing the brewery tour get yourself in here and add the meal option to your booking.

    Not welcoming if you don’t drink beer but otherwise a fantastic place
    Fantastic place but they really don’t like wine drinkers! (Which I am). Yes they are a brewery so perhaps they are not keen to encourage our sort of clientele! They have detailed beer lists but no wine list (although they have a fair selection) and the staff have the “we have red or white” attitude. Pity wine drinkers can’t enjoy going side by side with beer drinkers as I would go back here otherwise if it wasn’t so painful to find out what the wine selection was with staff rolling their eyes if you ask which country the Sauvignon Blanc is from.

    Great food, a great welcome for the dogs and a great range of beers
    We love this place. Just 5 mins off Junction 15 of the M8 near the cathedral / necropolis on the east of the city centre. A wide range of lovely beers , with the option to have small 'tasting' glasses. Water served as a matter of course. A great menu although we confined ourselves to the 'small plates' which were plenty enough for lunch. The.dogs loved.their water bowls and.plates.of chicken!

    Excellent Friendly Staff
    We visited Drygate on a busy Saturday, without having booked. The staff were very friendly upon our arrival and let us know that our children were welcome until 9pm, which was great to hear. We were very well looked after at our table, with a brilliant selection of beers available to choose from. My wife had ordered a glass of wine and changed her mind, asking for a beer instead. Even though the glass of wine had just been poured, the staff member said that it was no problem and changed the order for us. Everyone who looked after our table was happy, cheery and made our visit really enjoyable. A brilliant place to take your family, with first class staff!

    Superb Tap Room for beer and meals
    Visited here a number of times for lunch during a week-long stay in Glasgow. Being a keen fan of small scale independent brewing, this place does not disappoint. A great range of their own beers on tap and a superb menu - be it for a main meal or light bites. Lot's of space including an outdoor area for the summer. A bar upstairs that can be used for functions and great views of the brewery behind the glass windows. I certainly look forward to returning one day.

Stopped by after a walking tour that ended up at the cathedral. The beer was outstanding and the food also great. We were a family of 4 (two young adult kids - 19 and 21). The meaties and the veggies all got good food. The service was fast and thoughtful. Folks working there seemed just genuinely nice. What a find! Already planning our next visit.

We came upon the Drygate Brewery and its Brasserie after we'd been admiring the wall art at the co-located (much bigger) Tennants Brewery, and decided to go in for lunch.
The food was super, with the kitchen in full view. Particularly enjoyed the Chicken burger and the haggis bites. There was a wonderful selection of beers, and you could have 'flights' - four different thirds-of-a-pint, enabling you to choose a large selection.
