Three Judges Glasgow

An award-winning pub with several CAMRA titles, Three Judges is a top spot for drinking in Glasgow. This venue boasts a choice of Cask Marque accredited ales and beers, alongside a cracking selection of whiskies, rums and gins to boot. Sink into the comfy leather booths or prop yourself up at the bar, soaking up the old-school vibes of this West End boozer.

The Horseshoe Bar

Fronting traditional interiors with a contemporary touch, The Horseshoe Bar is the perfect place to huddle up on a winter's night. Settle into the comfortable leather seating and get to know the top-notch lineup of hearty British bites and warming tipples.


Auctioneers is one of the best traditional pubs Glasgow has to offer, showcasing tall ceilings, dog tooth carpets and retro seating. Once you've defrosted, grab yourself tantalising tapas dishes or sourdough pizzas - just don't forget to match it with one of the lush liquid libations.

The Lauder's

It doesn't get much cosier than The Lauder's. A Sauchiehall Street stalwart, this intimate haunt is made all the more snug with glowing lights and red hues. Pop over for food that'll warm your cockles through, not to mention beers, cocktails or a lovely glass of red.


Comfort food grub is the name of the game over at Granary, a much-loved local among the people of Southside. Mosey on over to lap up the charming atmosphere and delish drinks, not to mention the gooey mac 'n' cheese, burgers and wraps.

Tennents Bar

Nestled in the West End and dating back to 1884, Tennents Bar has charm by the bucketload. While surrounded by retro eating and a wood panelled bar, delve into gourmet burgers and stone-baked pizzas, washed down with a pint or two.

Hudsons Glasgow

Traditional free house Hudsons Glasgow is a great pick of cosy boozer round its parts, offering up the chance to settle in for sports, a weekly quiz or a couple of pints with pals. Otherwise, expect cocktails and gin spritzes to warm your cockles.

The Smokin' Fox

Serving up charm and cosiness by the bucketload, The Smokin' Fox is one of the best pubs in Glasgow city centre. It combines traditional tartan furnishings with antique wooden furniture, so the interiors here are seriously warm and welcoming - plus there's a stellar menu of comfort food classics to match.


Not only does Dram! serve up some of the best pub food in Glasgow, but it also boasts great beers on tap and over 70 different malts to sip on. It's a super snug watering hole for indulging in traditional fare and warming up in the colder months.
