Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My partner and I came for dinner on a week day and had a really good experience overall. Food was on point and it is a real gem to Byres Road if you are looking for good food but without the fuss of a restaurant!...We have been in lots of time before this to get drinks and snacks and it has never failed us. Would highly recommend.More

Fantastic service, lovely beer and the food was amazing! Great place to take the weans for a midday scran anaw. The mrs fancied one of the boys behind the bar which I didn't appreciate. She always does this. Rubs it into my face when she...takes interest in a younger, slimmer, more handsome guy. I'm sick of it. We once loved each other. She cheated on me 5 years ago. A specky wee bartender at Oran Mor. Told her I could never trust her ever again. If it wisny for the weans she'd be out on the streets. I recommend the Innis & Gunn if you're going for a pint with your pals!More

I actually first stumbled upon this little hidden gem as I needed the toilet and was close to touching cloth when leaving Hillhead Subway Station! It was just by chance I came across this warm welcoming establishment. The staff were fantastic at accommodating me. Especially...the girl with the red hair, she’s got some chat on her. I ended up staying for a couple drinks and some food and by golly did I have a lovely time. I’ll definitely be back to enjoy the scrumptious scran and divine drinks in the very near future.More

I had not visited the Curlers, but when passing and seeing stovies on the menu, I was drawn in. I suggested going there with a pal for a beer and food. There was a very good selection of beers. I was not certainly not disappointed...with the stovies that came with carrots and tenderstem broccoli plus bread to mop up the gravy. The stovies were exceptionally tasty. Amid all the different cuisines on Byres Road, I was delighted to see some traditional Scots cooking on the menu.More
