If you are over 5'8" you will find the beds here too small. Not only are they short, but the "double beds" are also narrow. They need to be, otherwise they wouldn't fit into the rooms, which are also very small. The windows are not double-glazed; nor do they shut properly. The shower is, like everything else, tiny. It's electric, so not very hot or powerful. The one plus is the breakfast, which is nice and simple: tea or coffee with fresh toast butter and jam/marmalade: a perfect way to start the day. At £70 per night it's not exactly cheap for what you get. But at least it has a lot of charm and character. And, as a resident, you can get drinks even once the bar is closed!

We spent our last night of two weeks in the U.K. at the Babbitt Bowster in Glasgow. We had just arrived by train from London and were looking forward to relaxing before heading to the airport early in the morning. We rented two of their rooms; while they were comfy, they were on the small side (not an issue), so that meant more time downstairs in the pub.

And what a wonderful pub! Great drink selection and incredible pub food. Ross took very good care of us making sure we always had what we wanted. He even carried my daughter's suitcase up to our 3rd floor rooms.

We had a wonderful dinner there once our son and his Scottish lass arrived.

Arrangements were made for a cab to pick us up at 6:00 AM the next morning. At 5:15 AM, the night manager provided us a nice arrangement of toast, tea and coffee.

I'm very glad we contacted them (they don't always appear in search results) and you have to make arrangements with them by email (at least it was that way at the time we did).

It's just a few steps off the beaten path, but is a great example of what I would consider to be a true 'Public' house. The friendly service, their interaction with their regulars, the atmosphere inside and the food made us feel very lucky to have found them.

Even if don't stay there!while in Glasgow, search them out and have a drink!

First time ever in this pub and probably wouldn't go back due to price. Expensive drinks which can be purchased in similar bars around town for less. Second round cost nearly £3 more for the exact same order???
Nice beer garden that would be popular on a sunny afternoon but evening sun doesn't hit the area and was rather chilly.
