5 years on and I return to the same pub, on the way back from Still Game at the Hydro.

An absolute joy. There are signs throughout the city that say "people make Glasgow". Never is that more true that in here - lovely locals, very accommodating to the people that travel all over the world to sample the reputation.

Loved it.

The reviews below are still broadly accurate and relevant.

This pub is to single malt bottles what the Meenakshi Temple is to figurines. Incidentally, we were delighted to note that there were a few representatives of the sub-continent in, and they seemed to be feeling quite at home too.

The chef-de-bar is a quite solid gentleman, and he wore an apparently leather kilt when we called. (Those of a genteel disposition will avert their eyes, when he climbs the tall steps to retrieve a malt from among the myriad on display.) He has a ginger forked beard (though more Sven than the late Vivian Stanshall perhaps), and is on the case at once, if any known ne'er-do-well should try to cross the threshold.

There were also four ales on hand pumps from Alchemy. The Summer Pale Ale that I had was fine.

We also spotted that there was an English whisky on offer. Well, on show at least. The two bottles were still in their now-quite-faded boxes, apparently unopened.

It's great. Have nine-out-of-ten.

Charming old style pub famous for its whisky range. I don't drink spirits as they makes my brain hurt, but my pint of Red Skye (3.25, not seen before or since) was very nice. An amusement for me was watching a group of 20 something chaps tasting a large range of VERY expensive whiskies that a knowledgeable bar fellow fetched acrobatically from the highest shelves. I imagine there was an expensive puddle of vomit on the Hope Street footpath after their session.

Sort out, having seen that a) it was recommended and b) is on the way from Queen Street to the Hydro - where we were going for Still Game.

What a Gem of a pub. 666 different whiskies. I tried to work out how much stock that was but gave up confused.

Too early for the water of life, so had a very decent Guinness. Super pub.

Brilliant little pub that offers great beers and hospitality. A small but very reasonably priced range of food (I loved the Scotch pies) and more whisky than you could dream of tasting in a dozen visits. I must visit for me when I am next in Glasgow.
