Recent midweek visit at lunchtime. A bit quiet at first but filled up quickly. Very pleasant barman took my order for food and drink and both were fine. Bangers and mash were excellent. Well poured Harivestoun. Considering I was on my way up Byres Road to visit Tennent's, this proved a solid and unexpected diversion.

Pub number 2 and its the Curlers Rest on Byers Road. The exterior looks like a regular locals pub but the inside is very different, the lighting is low, soul music is playing and its pretty trendy.

There are 5 hand pumps that have 4 cask ales on, 2 from Harivestoun Bitter & Twisted and Broken Dial, Caledonian Deuchars IPA and Stewart's 80/-. On keg there are another 3 ales and I go for a pint of Purity Longhorn IPA @ 5.0%. A good pint that is well kept and served but I think £4.45 a pint is a bit steep. I've had this in pubs before when they put a premium on keg ales.

The walls by the bar are adorned with pump clips, there's certainly been some ales served here.

A strong smell of food , around half the punters were here for food.

A large pub with plenty of tables and chairs and comfy sofas in the large room opposite the bar. Upstairs there's a dining room area with another small bar.

Another tick for me.

Friday night, very busy,no grief from the "doorman";decent beer but I didn't see much of the place due to the number of people in the room. Will go again - it is next door to Hillhead Subway station and a part of the Byres Road pub crawl.

Good pint of Harviestoun American IPA yesterday- a hoppy 5%- though I was surprised to be given a dimpled mug. It was also quite expensive, but I like the look of the new place. A bit gastro-ey but an improvement on the old student shop.

It is disappointing to think that drinkers might be prevented from visiting this fine pub because of the plethora of negative reviews. The bouncers mentioned by pomona are a licensing requirement because of the bad reputation which the pub previously had. However, the owners could perhaps do more to make the pub seem more welcoming from the outside because we very nearly didn't go in. What a treat we would have missed! The new owners have clearly spent a considerable sum developing the pub in to a fine traditional but gastro venue. 5 real ales all with pumps containing descriptions of the beer on a luggage label tied to each. The barman was on hand to answer any further questions and when one beer ran out halfway through pouring he generously gave it me at no extra cost. The food looked lovely. Upstairs there are wooden banqueting tables and the kitchen; downstairs tables and chairs. The pub has its own newsletter advertising regular events. The pub was lit by candles with real fires and the mood was friendly and relaxed. I got the impression that outsiders and locals would be welcomed with an equal enthusiasm.
