Regarding drinks and etc it's just a regular bar, which can be even a little overpriced in some regards. However, its interior is simply amazing. I constantly see myself suggesting this place to people that come from abroad. It's worth visiting this place for a pint at least once to appreciate its beautiful interior wooden maze.

Dropped in to watch rugby on big screen - as advertised. Main bar was busy so went upstairs and requested they show it there too. Got a very frosty response and a cold shoulder. Back down stairs and off to basement bar surprised by a surly response to pointing out a wrongly fulfilled beer order and asking for what I... More

Very busy full of character set over 3 floors. Quirky and different. Sharing platters lush. Wasn't expensive to drink or eat . Great location right next to hotel

An idiosyncratic place where you feel you might bump into a Hobbit or two. Sort of Gothic in concept but ultimately sells very ordinary beers and pub food, good to visit but there are so many better places for interesting drink and food. Glasgow has so much to offer that this touristy place is out of character in a city... More

Having been told to turn up before 7pm for a surprise 40th - we find the function room booked from 6.30pm completely full of rugby fans watching the game on the tv. It was loud, a complete mess, people had just ordered food. By 7pm - we asked to speak to someone. Spoke to a member of staff who told... More

Pre-booked a room for 12 people to watch a football match. The place itself is quite complex if you're there for the first time, it has these different rooms and bars on multiple levels. The room we got was quite nice, good view of the screen. The service was fine, we were readily serviced by the nice staff there.

Dropped in here for a couple of beers as we were staying in the Carlton next door and this place is a must visit due to it's quirky set up...As it was early Saturday evening it wasn't too busy which made it easy to get served and get a table...Prices are reasonable therefore definitely worth a visit...

Went with a group from work. Table was reserved in advance which is worth doing. Meals, drinks, and service was all excellent from very friendly staff. The pub itself has loads of character. It's like a mini maze, loads of different areas creating a different feel. Loved it.
