The Ben Nevis

2 user reviews 5

The Ben Nevis is a traditional pub in Glasgow that pays tribute to ll things Scotland. Typical traditional pub features include stone walls, dark wood and a always-on fire, but as well as that are lots of quirky indigenous features. Old rope knotted into railway sleepers, salvaged from a ship, framed cuttings from the Highlands, slate slabs, chunks of wood, and iron castings. With Gaelic etchings on the bar and walls, this is one of the most charming traditional pubs in Glasgow. 

The Pot Still

2 user reviews 5

The Pot Still is a cracking traditional pub in Glasgow. This Central Glasgow whiskey bar is decked out in embellished dark wood panelling, and the ceiling cornices have ornate detailing. Add wooden pillars, stained glass, and seating, almost as old as this 150 year old pub and you have yourself one of the best traditional boozers in Glasgow.
