The Horse Shoe Bar

Bars and pubs Central Glasgow
4 out of 5 stars

Everything that a style bar isn't – and all the better for it

A genuine survivor from the Victorian era, the Horse Shoe is tucked down a lane near Central Station, has a fabulous island bar, quirky horse-related ornaments above the gantry, it shows loads of football on the flatscreens around the premises and it does cheap bar food. There is no contemporary design here, no frills, no nonsense. It's an old-school pub pure and simple and in its own way an icon of Glasgow pub culture where you come for a pint of cask ale, a chat with  your mates or some macaroni cheese for under a fiver.
