You need not look further for a unique bar layout than ‘The Horseshoe Bar’, located on Drury Street, Glasgow. This iconic bar is the longest in all of Europe (or so they claim), coming in at 104 feet and 3 inches. The classic Victorian design situated slap bang in the centre of the pub, takes shape in the form of a horseshoe. The size and shape of the bar, whilst being aesthetically pleasing on the eye, makes the bar accessible from any area of the bar’s sitting areas. This is a great feature of the pub on a busy night, where, unlike traditional ‘flat’ bars, queues build up and getting away from the bar without spilling your drink is, as we all know, one of the most difficult things to do!
The staff are known for being kind and helpful. They really know their stuff! Ask them for a recommendation of one of the many Scottish beers available, you won’t be disappointed!
The drink selection on offer is far from small;
“From smooth Australians to fruity French numbers, our cellar is amply stocked with palate-pleasing wines (by the glass and bottle) - and at prices not to be sniffed at. If you're more of a cask-ale connoisseur, you can be assured that every one of our great British brews is given the love and attention you'd expect from a Cask Marque accredited pub in Glasgow.”

On to the food. The Horseshoe offers great pub grub at reasonable prices! We recommend the burgers, perfect accompaniment to a freshly poured lager! Theres always a deal to go with meals, so no doubt you will find something worthwhile! Every day is “Burger & A Drink” day! For just £6.29 you can get a delicious burger and a pint! Try the ‘Grill Night’ on a Wednesday! “Choose your favourite from steak, chicken or gammon cooked to perfection”. SUNDAY, take note of this! £5.49 for a ROAST and a drink, something!
“Some of our dishes offer a tempting twist on the traditional. Take our trio of mini pies, for instance, perfect with your favourite tipple and a few pals. While others are just darned tempting, like our 8oz gourmet burgers, made from prime Scottish beef and served with an array of adventurous toppings. Or our juicy ribs, smothered in your choice of sauce.”
