Several recent visits meeting up with local friends. This is one-big ass joint with a huge four-sided bar, tables galore and several rooms that can leave you wondering where the rest of your party has gone to. Excellent selection of real ales, bottles and spirits. I was happily surprised to find Skye Brewery's Skye Gold (and Red) available. Food was serviceable - I had fried scampi and chips which hit the spot even if it didn't knock me out. Loud and crowded, it wouldn't be my first choice for a quiet beer. But meeting up with a group of friends right before flying home, it's served the purpose.

Really nice wetherspoons. The interior is grand looking and the bar is huge, which means a lot of ales (must be at least 10, certainly in the double digits). Certain parts of it give you a great view of the beautiful George Square and whatever is going on. I didn't have an Ale but went for 'St Mungo Lager' named after Glasgow's Patron Saint, pretty decent but quite pricey. Certainly worth a visit but I'm sure it gets packed on a weekend. I went on a nice Tuesday afternoon and it was busy.

Good big Scottish breakfast. Though I could not eat all the Lorne sausage. Good staff.

Nice interior in the pub too.

Fabulous building which was an old bank - the safes are still in the wall!. Penty of room inside and of course that magnificent dome! Lots of staff on duty so no queue for a beer - which was probably the largest selection of Scottish ales I saw during my visit to Glasgow - very impressive (around 16 pumps). Usual Wetherspoon's offers on food etc., but this bar is worth a visit if not for the beer then for the architecture alone!

First visit here on a Friday lunchtime, when it was filling up nicely.

The real ale festival was on and the choice of ales was excellent with at least 16 on at once.

Stunning building that has been respectibly converted into a 'spoons. As SOUTHYORKSHIREMAN said the glass dome above the bar is stunning.

Another good 'spoons with a decent atmosphere and surpisingly well staffed.
