WEST On The Green


Best Pub 2014 - DesignMyNight Awards

Why drink beer in a pub when you can go straight to the source? West, ironically in the East End of Glasgow, is a beer hall, restaurant and brewery in the stunning Templeton Carpet factory building. One of Glasgow's most protected buildings, the Victorian masterpiece was modelled on Doge's Palace in Venice and within its walls carpets were created for the Taj Mahal, The White House and the Houses of Parliament. Lovingly restored, the beer hall, which overlooks some of the brewhouse, marries modern elements with the beauty of the building, open plan, with exposed ventilation, light pours in through the massive windows, but dark solid woods and original flooring create a warmth and cosy feel too.

The crowd here are a blend of tourists and beer buffs, while others come for something a little different, great surroundings or pleasant banter. West takes its brewing methods from the German masters and this influence spreads through the bar too, with beer served in tankards and available by the litre. West's most famous brew, St Mungo's, flows freely, as do their other creations, Munich Red, Dunkel and Hefweizer to name a few, along with external crafts and your usual selection of spirits and wines. Food is a mix of German and Scottish fare with pretzels and schnitzels sitting nicely alongside Scottish salmon and Shetland mussels. The extensive beer garden outside overlooking Glasgow Green makes this the perfect lazy day spot when the sun shines.
