About the Pub

Glasgow's finest pub interior, situated in the ground floor of a three-storey tenement built in 1860 and remodelled in 1892-3. This is one of the last remaining Victorian 'palace pubs' in Glasgow, the large bar has a magnificent dark wooden back gantry incorporating two sets of four whisky casks either side of a mirrored centrepiece, a pediment and central clock. The original long bar counter with some part glazed short partitions has a new polished stone top.

On the dark wood panelled walls are four superb huge advertising mirrors painted and gilded by Forest & Son of Glasgow. On the rear left wall is one for 'Very Old Vintage Port & Brandy, Champagne, Clarets'. Note the colourful painted windows on the two sets of inner doors and in the vestibule entrance on Admiral Street, where a jug and bottle was originally situated. Other original features include a panelled ceiling, carved woodwork, mahogany panels above the seating; there are only modern fittings in the downstairs lounge bar.

Real ales were available after its reopening in 2017 but this ceased towards the end of 2019.
