Thanks for all the lowdown. Very useful.

Zoe King | Thu Dec 19 2013

Interesting news about the impending Nicholsons branding for Tennents. Looking at the Nicholsons website I see that we already have nine of them in Scotland. The only one I've been to, the Drum & Monkey in Glasgow, served the worst food I've ever had in a pub (and I've had a lot of pub food). It was pretty much inedible. Far worse quality than the current "caterpak" grub served in Tennents, and as you say more expensive. The service was almost as bad. We were there in a group of 20 or so for a work dinner, it was embarrassing and needless to say we've not been back.

Good piece about Curlers rest, the reason for the name, it was actually called The Curlers Rest back in the 40's i think, hence why they have gone back to it.

Robert | Fri Sep 03 2010

I think you'll find the ex-Curler's mural (Hugh MacDiarmid et all)not in The People's Palace but the main bar in Oran Mor (Great Western Road wall)

Rupert Cocking | Fri Aug 20 2010

With pumpkin pie, as with haggis, there exists examples of divine and disgusting. Sadly, you've only tasted the latter. My husband requests the former instead of birthday cake every year!

Gazelle is in fact already a G1 tenancy.

Enjoyed your comment about Finnieston area, however i felt that you left out Fanny Trollopes Bistro. Really good food and friendly staff. It has just completed a face lift with new frontage and redecoration inside. You should try it out!!!

Iona Hooton | Wed Mar 18 2009

Hi Pat, Good comment about the rise of the Finnieston area! Places like Ben Nevis, Lebowskis, the new Crab Shack, Villa Toscana etc all seem to be moving the area forward in terms of options for a decent meal or night out! Have also heard that Gazelle is due to change hands; here's hoping it won't become another G1 outpost..

Brian Macley | Thu Mar 05 2009

Hi.. We are coming up to the Grand National on the 17th and 18th April and are looking for places to eat on the Friday and Saturday evening. We are 21 males aged around 45 ...well behaved but do enjoy our food and drink. Also looking for other places to go after the restaurants. Any ideas gratefully received. Many thanks. Nick.

Nick | Wed Feb 25 2009

Hi I was wondering if you had any info on the type of food a news place called Bibi's is doing. It is on the premisies of where The Kail Yard Green used to be

Maggie | Wed Oct 17 2007

I think a Wetherspoons at Partick X would bring more trade into the area, and pubs like 'The Judges' would actually benefit from it. I remember Helen McCarroll from her barmaiding days in Reid's of Pertyck. Obviously, she never won the lottery. Same here. Aye, but never mind, eh? (wink)

William Davidson | Sat Jul 14 2007

Roy, The 'something or other & Firkin then student pub Scream' is apparently going to be, guess what, a nightclub.

westender | Mon Jun 26 2006

Roy, '...a compulsory minimum ventilation standard'. Will smokers ever accept the fact that no matter what standards of 'ventilation' were installed, they were NEVER good enough? Fag smoke spreads, and clings; and quite simply non smokers do not want to stink and have poisons and carcinogens foisted upon them - in their clothes, hair, lungs - in enclosed spaces. Why should smokers be aggrieved that they no longer have that right? Good stuff though, apart from the sour grapes.

westender | Thu Apr 06 2006

Any reports on the new restaurant Rail House Green on dumbarton Road next to Partick copshop.
