This used to be a regular place for me to visit, because the food was great and the pub was cosy. Unfortunately on a recent visit, the menu has changed and the food was very average for 'pub grub' the toilets were dirty with no toilet paper and the whole place was freezing! we had to keep our jackets on, when I approached the barman to ask if the heating was on, he replied....I don't know' This is a pity, because the universal was a great wee pub with fab food.

Came here with a group of people. It's right down a random wee lane off sauchiehall street.
Food was quite nice, had a massive burger which was accompanied with soggy large wedges, I was expecting chips. Wasn't overly cheap for food and drink. May visit again but not a first choice.

Had the £5 beer and burger lunch yesterday. Lovely beefy burger with salad and wedges and a pint of Stella. The young waitress/barmaid was very pleasant and efficient.
Will definitely return.

Good food at very reasonable prices , with a really great varied menu . Tucked away just a few streets away from either the Pavilion Theatre or The Kings Theatre it's a great place for pre theatre food and drinks .

Went for a quick lunch before work training and we both enjoyed our food. The beer and a burger deal was good for £5 however I ate from the main menu and it was over £10 for chicken strips chips and a glass of juice which I thought was too pricey.
That said it is a lovely wee bar in an in appealing location and was pleasantly surprised.
