    Yummy mac n cheese!

    Lovely pub, good menu, attentive staff, delicious food - what more could I ask for? Nothing! A very pleasant evening - they even called a taxi to get us to the hydro 😀

    Very tasty

    Booked this for an early pre-Hydro dinner and not feeling hungry enough for 2 courses, we took advantage of the Gig & Byte deal instead (20% off food if you show your gig tickets). All dishes were delicious. I had the scrumptious Mac n Cheese, others had Gnocchi and the ramen dish. All very tasty. Wee beer garden out the back looks like it would be good on a sunny day :)

Welcoming bar by Charing Cross

A sleek refurbishment in early 2016 means that McPhabbs seems likely to maintain its reputation as one of the most popular gastropubs in the area. A relaxed and welcoming bar on Sandyford Place, it is a bright and airy space with a well used beer garden. Premium spirits, a good range of wines, cocktails – especially the Bloody Marys – and a fine selection of beers are major attractions as is the imaginative bar food. Weekly pub quizzes and live music add to its appeal. After work drinks and weekend brunches are peak times.

Adventurous bar food

The chefs at McPhabbs are an innovative bunch. Visitors are just as likely to find a soft shell crab burger with kimchi on the menu as they are to find a more conventional cheeseburger. Globe-trotting choices such as Vietnamese spring rolls and short rib beef tacos sit next to proper pork pies and Scotch eggs made with smoked haddock. McPhabbs may well be the only bar in Glasgow to offer a side dish of kale, green beans and hazelnuts alongside a selection of different fries. The lunchtime sandwich selection is just as creative.
