A raucous & jolly session pub, with a long bar & plenty of staff. Despite the crowd & noise service was good, though I chose unwisely (Belhaven Best, 2.90), a liquid which, like John Smiths & Tetleys, poses as beer. There were probably better beers on offer but not immediately visible & speed is important in a crowded bar. That said, I enjoyed this pub & will visit again if I can persuade some of my drinking pals down under to join me, as it is definitely a pub enjoyed in company.

I gather this is a text book example of a certain type of pub in Scotland where the bar winds right around the premises. To that end it is well worth a visit, but also for the beautiful Victorian features and stained glass. A wonderful place. My only complaint was the televised football was a bit loud. I still think any pub fan visiting Glasgow should at least come by so they can say they were there. Good well kept ales and friendly staff.

You can't deny it's a unique pub & an essential place to visit when in Glasgow. However, the beer choice is very poor, one of which is the ever present Deuchars. I think the pub is doing business based on it's reputation, which doesn't bear any resembelence to current reality.

This is a Glasgow institution! The largest continuous bar in the world according to the sign! A mix of Scottish and guest ales from "the South" although you have to look for the pumps as every inch of the bar is covered with beer taps! Don't miss the pie and beans. A very busy bar right in the herat of the city - so handy for Central station and only a couple of minutes walk from Queen Street. The only downside? - there are television screens everywhere (and I mean everywhere)and although there's generally no sound I found them intrusive! Having said that - I'll be back!

Phew! After my wallet taking a complete hammering in Auld Reekie, I was offered some much welcomed financial relief. Drank several pints of Blonde from Harviestoun Brewery which was superb and reasonably priced at £2.65.

Like most reviewers point out, it is a lovely old fashioned boozer, with a massive bar that circles the whole place.

Food looked good, although I didn't sample any.
