“Upscale pub food”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

The food was very good and the presentation very nice. The fish and chips were very good. Has a different sort of environment - old Irish pub with a very large scotch selection.

“Lunch Date”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

Absolutely wonderful atmosphere, great service, unbelievable selection of scotch and bourbon. The pot roast sandwich and fish and chips for lunch were above par, and the sticky toffee pudding is a must! From the manager on duty, to the server and the bartender, everyone was excellent and very enjoyable to chat with. Would love to go back and listen to live music some evening.

“Great place for a drink”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

This is a great establishment for a drink and appetizer in downtown.
A must stop for any visitor in the area and well within walking distance from the casino.

“An excuse for a whisky bar....food, ok...”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Though this is a Scots themed place, I found nobody Scots (other than me) in the place!

From what I could tell, this is just a themed bar that has an excuse to sell lots of different Whiskies....and the odd Scots beer (Tennants lager - a staple of Glasgow!).

Its fine, but not as Scots as I would have like to have seen!
