Taking over a wee old mans’ pub in Govanhill and creating a Caribbean vibe sounds like a tall order, but I think The Rum Shack have done it. It’s not all palm trees and blow up bananas though (thankfully!).
With reggae playing in the background, it’s £2.50 for rum and coke to accompany lunch or dinner served from their Caribbean-inspired menu.
We struggled to pick dishes, they all sounded so good – goat curry, spicy fish, all sounded delicious.
Good sized prawns with lip-smacking batter and dipping sauce, a wee bit steep in price for me though.
Salt fish shaped and fried, an excellent bar snack.
We both went for 1/4 jerk chicken served with rice and peas as well as salad and corn on the cob. There is also a 1/2 chicken size available. Charcoaly, spicy and lots of meat to pull off the bone. Like Nando’s only much better. Myself and Miss D loved it.
Tidy toilets, friendly staff, good spirit and beer selection – all good stuff. Will have to come back at night for one of their music nights.
– pricy starters
