We had a girls lunch here yesterday so various choices from the menu. Everyone was delighted by their choice of food cleared plates by all, burgers were excellent and the mac n cheese went down a storm. Well worth a visit

En route to the Renfrew Ferry for a charity fundraiser, we stopped off here for drinks and pizza- It was great. Attentive, friendly staff and brilliant pizzas with lovely seasoned French fries.

Met a friend for lunch, food was delicious and staff attentive. When they realise you are only on a lunch break they go out of their way to speed up service for you.

I love macaroni but it can be a major hit or miss in restaurants - The Admiral's macaroni is perfect. It's home made and very cheesy and creamy. Way better than Sloans. A bargain too at around £6.

The Admiral is a great traditional Glasgow pub with several twists. The Tuesday teatime quiz is great fun if you have a fairly thick skin and can cope with the abuse from the host. Look out for offers. Two for one on pizzas and only £4 for macaroni and cheese. Several mac and cheese possibilities but the three little pigs... More

The food is reasonably priced , sandwiches an baked potatoes are £5 and pizzas are 2for1.. Great deal! I ordered myself a baked potato with cheese and coleslaw. It... More

Excellent beer, great food & fantastic staff. A better bar in town you could not find. Whether you're watching football, reading the paper or having a bite to eat, this is the place for you.
