Brechin Bar, 803 Govan Road, Govan, Glasgow – Nov 2011

Located in the heart of Govan, a stones throw from both the riverside ferry as well as the underground.  Probably the best time not to visit is just after hoardes of chaps have left to visit the football as the places was roasting and stinking of sweaty bodies.  However, a warm welcome from bar staff and plenty seating left.  Some good architectural touches that would be stunning if given a good scrub.

£2.55 for a 1/2 guinness and soda and lime,  on tap is tennents, guinness, carling,  stella, strongbow and blackthorn.  Bottled beers also sold but no sign of any real ales.
