“Good beer but loud music”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

Like all bars I dont understand why music have to be so, loud you cant hear your self to tallk. The beer was nice fresh from the tap very cool. I like the windows when the sun out the blue windows shows. There large tv there playing music. There magazines. Would I come back? yes

“Interesting”
Reviewed 20 May 2013 via mobile

Oldest gay bar in Glasgow with over 40s being the mainstay. Music slightly too loud but prices very competitive. Good ambiance & open until midnight. Missed the live acts unfortunately but will visit again.

“Love this place”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

My partner and I now go to the Waterloo every time we are in Glasgow.

This little gay bar is viewed by many as an old mans pub, and in some respects it has an older clientèle but it also has such a mix of people that it should be viewed as a relaxed great little place for anyone LGBT or straight to visit.

The staff are so friendly and after a few visits they know what your regular drink is, that's what i call great service!! Prices are great too compared to some gay pubs on the scene and the music is great on the ears too.

“Blatant short changing”
Reviewed 31 December 2011

I called into this bar with my wife. Didn't know that it was a gay bar but have no problem with that. My problem was being blatantly short changed by the bar man. Then being told that he could do nothing about it. Tough Luck. In the name of fairness I was refunded the money after involving the police (yes it really was that obvious what had occured) allegedly from the manageresses own money !! (really)
Have to say that I (along with another unrelated couple who I met again later the same evening) were left with the impression that this is a regular scam. Come on guy's, when you get caught, don't keep digging. pretend it was a genuine mistake and refund the money.
