Curler's Rest is a cracking gastro pub in Glasgow's West End. Once a ramshackled student favourite known simply as Curler's, a £500,000 makeover later and this 600 year old building is now a posh pub with cosy, rustic decor. A big roaring stone fire with comfy leather couches around it, beer hall style benches for groups, a long bar with old style tiles, and lots of warm tones and homely features. 

While the pub of yore is still lamented by many a Glasgow graduate, the spruced version is a popular haunt with young professionals, foodies and beer fans. A great selection of brews includes 25 beers and real ales on tap as well as a lengthy choice of wines, ciders and spirits. Pub grub is something of a fine art here, with seasonal specials changing daily. Hearty highlights include a pork & chorizo burger, ox cheek & red wine pie and cider & tarragon battered cod. Blinding brunch and lunch menus on weekends (along with live sport, board games and papers) make this a great spot to nestle in for the day.

Came in here with a group to watch the rugby. I didn't buy any of my own drinks so amn't sure on drinks prices. The food was really nice, don't remember it being particularly expensive either. It's got a lovely atmosphere and the staff were really top-notch.

Another nice place to get a pint with friends. The beer and other drinks are reasonably priced, but the food is not. The only thing on the menu worth the money is probably the poutine.
