It's the Horse Shoe, that's all one has to say if a Glaswegian. It's been around as long as I can remember and has always been full of that world famous rough and ready but ever friendly Glaswegian charm with a clientele that crosses every imaginable social demographic so pauper or prince if you don't feel comfortable here you won't...

Having not visited the Horseshoe Bar in over 20 years, it came as a very pleasant surprise to note that nothing much has changed. This Victorian city pub oozes character and characters! We enjoyed a pleasant couple of drinks and a cheap late lunch - all very nice thank you. We'll be back in around 2037 - if we're spared... More

Small pub on a lane, serving a variety of drinks as well as food. Handy for a few drinks while waiting to catch a train from Glasgow Central.

Popped in for a quick pint. Bar was heaving with Saturday post-shopping punters. Was quickly served and even found a seat. Good for what it was: city centre pub.

a great old fashioned bar it does get very busy with people on their way home after work so if you want a quiet drink avoid 5 through to 7pm but it is just a great atmospheric bar which you simply must visit can,t wait to go back again they do meals as well!

I had done considerable research before embarking on this adventure, and read that the Horse Shoe was not to be missed. We were not disappointed. The food the first night was only so-so. On subsequent visits the Steak and Guiness... More

Having been to Glasgow many times we called in as it sounded lively and we weren't disappointed. There is a karaoke bar up stairs and it was packed. The prices aren't bad and the bar itself have plenty of character which I like. I would recommend a visit
