Went here last week and the bar woman/bouncer was aggressive and refused to serve us and told us to leave. Refused to give a reason just adopted an aggressive stance and followed us outside growling at us. Ended up going to a couple of pubs on the bottom of hope Street instead and had a cracking night. Can't comment on food etc but the pub was dead and had a funky smell. About all I can review in our 2 mins we had before being rudely told to get out

I hadn't been here for a while..so I thought myself and partner would stop in. The barman looked so fed up ,and certainly no service with a smile. For our second drink, that he got wrong, he blamed my partner for it. He could see the first time what we had ordered, but brought us a totally different drink. No apology , just a very grumpy face. Very doubtful that I would come back here. There are many other pubs that welcome their customers with a smile.

placed an order for 2 wraps 3 halloumi and 2 peri chips . Order came quickly but noticed one wrap was missing. Phoned 3 numbers to get through to a worker from Nandos and asked him for the wrap that was missing he then proceeded to tell me I could only revived a refund and it would take 72 hours I told him i wanted the wrap and he hung up the phone. Terrible service WILL NOT BE ORDERING FROM HERE AGAIN

Google suggested this was a gay bar. The 50 year old women wailing to the 90s songs of the overly loud DJ proved different.

waterloo on friday is an actual relic.advertising a DJ that refuses to DJwon’t cater to the customers who actually request modern songs, will repeat play old songs… does someone need to hear the same abba song twice and the same celine dion song 4 times in 2 hours, when they won’t play the recent songs we request? NO!would be understandable if the clientele was responding, but if customers are requesting songs and you cut them off half way through the song because they’re different, why bother playing them at all? the fact they are customer requested means they are more welcome than yet ANOTHER abba song, that you’ll most likely repeat through the night.

Yes we had a good night, the atmosphere was good as always, a few dances around the bar. Not very busy for a Saturday night mind you.

Normally Glasgow's best gay bar but the female bouncer is not a very nice person and treats people that she deems "not gay enough" terribly. Asked as I had been at a football match "what's a football fan doing in here anyway?" Because I'm gay. And a football fan. Shame as intolerance shouldn't exist in a gay bar.

Went on a Friday night and was very quiet. Music blasting but only about 8 people there! Beer was ok

Ear-splitting music on Friday night! Although their Wacky Wednesday afternoon was extremely fun and entertaining, we had to walk out after 10 seconds due to the (truly) deafening music volume on Friday night. And we were not the only onesThere is no reason to dial the volume up to the point where it becomes painful, and you can forget about chatting someone up. Save your hearing.Too bad. Don't go.

Just turned up and refused drinks by a very hostile lady. She refused to serve my husband stated he was to drunk. We had our cases with us as we were heading home, yes he'd had a drink but there was 3 people in there and it 4.30 in the afternoon your loss. Avoid the nasty lady and 1 star is not much for her.

A very lively gay/mixed up. Good afternoon entertainment and quizzes. Staff can be a bit off if your not a regular face until they warm to you.

Myself plus 3 friends vent in on Saturday 14th August to see Robert and May Miller place was mobbed we had to stand at bar door steward was tall scruffy looking guy smelling of hash. He kept marching up and down the pub and kept bumping into my friend who is only small, till about the 4th time she said excuse me and asked his name!He said thats it you have been causing trouble all day grabbed her drink right out her hand and threw us all out shouting your barred. I have never been so humiliated in all my life. I dont even drink we were lucky if been in 45 mins and my friend he bumped was so upset. When asked for manager she was on her break. Surely when pub is mobbed that cant be when you choose to have a break.
