Blackfriars, 36 Bell Street, Glasgow – September 2012


We nipped in as part of Glasgow Beer Week due to the added bonus of all 6 ales from Tempest Brewery on tap.  We weren’t disappointed with the ales, gorgeous.

It was jumping and hard to get a seat but we got one eventually and sat and supped.  Usually 5 real ales on.  Food also served and events on downstairs.

A long favourite of mine, and recommended.




I am Emma and with my husband Mark write Foodie Explorers, which is a food and travel website.

I am a member of the Guild of Food Writers and British Guild of Travel Writers.

We have a wide range of judging experience covering products, hotels and have judged, for example, for Great Taste Awards and Scottish Baker of the Year.

Along the way Mark gained WSET Level 2 in Wine and I have WSET Level 2 in Spirits as well as picking up an award with The Scotsman Food and Drink Awards.    

Usually I can be found sleeping beside a cat.
