Munros, Glasgow – Cask and Craft Beer Bar, 185 Great Western Road, Glasgow

Outside Munros Glasgow craft cask beer bar

Munros in Glasgow’s West end is a complete transformation from it’s old guise of The Captain’s Rest, mainly due to windows.  It’s amazing what a difference windows make.  But that’s not all.  Comfy seating, a wide range of beers as well as wines, spirits and food make this a to-go to place.

The first hard decision was what to drink, when I visited on tap were  Shiehallion, Deuchars, Kernel -table beer, Honey Brown, Diablo, Empire Brewery – Strikes Back, Fire Bellied Toad as well as Cirrus Minor Cider.  If you can’t decide on one, or fancy a variety, beer flights are available from £3.50 for three 1/3 pints.  A full menu of drinks on offer can be found HERE.

I settled down with my pint to check out the food menu.  Food ranges from soup to buckets of chips to sharing platters to Schiehallion battered fish and chips.  A wide range of food.  By this time my fellow drinking/dinning partners had arrived and we ordered some food.

The whitebait were crisp, tasty and plentiful, chilli chips with kick.  Both the Farmhouse and Italian meat platters drew many a mmm, mostly due to the quality of the meat pie, house slaw as well as the meats.  The ingredients were fresh and well thought out.

We struggled to finish the food and with the strong beer and the cosy fireside chairs were ready to settle back for the afternoon.  I’m sure the staff would have thrown over a pillow if they could.  Overall friendly service, great beer and food, one for the list of nip into when in the West End.
