    Food was excellent - a very varied menu. Service was also first class, we were never kept waiting at any point. They were also very attentive to my friends dog and brought out a bowl of water on arrival for her - it was a VERY hot day. Highly recommend this place, especially handy for pre gig food & drinks if you're going to the Barras.

    Great food, great service. They had the builders in so the toilets were being refurbished but that was the only down side. Both the chilli burger and the pulled pork sandwich were delicious, although the plates were on the small side and chips kept falling off. We asked for a slight change to the pulled pork sandwich (different bread roll) and it was accommodated with no problem. Highly recommended if you fancy good bbq food. Great selection of beers, cider etc as well

    We waited for over an hour and 15 mins for our meal. We asked about 50 mins into the wait how much longer and was told it would be 10-15 mins. So can only assume that was it just being put on. We were going to a gig at Barrowland and missed the start of it because of the delay. When the food was brought out we asked for vinegar and was told it would be brought over but never was. Have always had good experiences in Van winkle but was very disappointed this time. Was just poor all round.

    Nice venue, friendly staff, but we waited for over an hour without food. When we asked, we were told it would be at least another 15 minutes. We had an event to be at and had to leave. We were never warned that the kitchen had a backlog or that there was over an hour’s wait for food. It was a shame because the food we saw looked good. Disappointed that we didn’t get to experience it.

    Excellent food and service! The male and female staff members waiting on our table were so pleasant and polite. Employees in a public facing role could learn a lot from these two. They offer a small menu and as a result the food is perfect, instead of like most establishments which have umpteen dishes and are usually master of none. Perfect for food and drinks before crossing the road to The Barrowlands.

    Quick bite to eat before a gig. Waiter actually down sold me as he suggested the burger I wanted which was more expensive was a bad idea if I was going out drinking and recommended a smaller/less expensive alternative. Philli cheese came and it was so good, as was the IPA! Will definitely be back.

    Food was pretty average I went for the Philly Cheesesteak but it was quite difficult to eat due to the amount of 'gravy' that was on it. Not a lot of cheese that I could see. Steak was nice on it though. Went for the BBQ chicken wings were ok but drowned in sauce. My friend went for the mac'n'cheese which was pretty dry, and the chilli burger which was like a big dod of much on a bun. Very messy. Best part of the meal was the chips to be honest
