A lively mix of traditional and modern with a continental feel too; bedrooms

This 18th-c former tobacco merchant's house remains very much a Glasgow institution with a thoroughly convivial atmosphere and a good mix of customers. The simply decorated, light-filled interior has fine tall windows, plush stools and cushioned ladder-back chairs around a mix of dark tables on bare boards, some wall bench seating, open fires and attractive plant prints on light paintwork. The bar opens on to a pleasant terrace with picnic-sets under parasols and there's another back terrace too. High chairs line the counter where they keep Caledonian Deuchars IPA, Fyne Ales Jarl and a changing guest on air-pressure tall founts, and a remarkably impressive collection of wines and malt whiskies; good tea and coffee too. They hold traditional live music sessions from 3pm on Wednesdays and Saturdays; boules. Bedrooms are simple and cosy, and the room rate includes tea or coffee with toast and home-made preserves.
