I uploaded a photo recently of what Meathook is now. It became a pizza place but now it’s a Pan-Asian restaurant called Nam Tuk. Decided to delete it as it’s taking a while to be added to the Meathook page.

Pop-Up-Pig has changed its name to Meathook - it sells beers, burgers and cocktails according to the website.

This has already been through several name changes in its short existence and its latest incarnation features walls and windows decorated with numerous pictures of pigs, which some might find rather off-putting if eating pork. It's obviously aiming for the higher end of the market in an area crowded with eating and drinking outlets. There are expensive foreign lagers such as Sagres (Portuguese), at £4.20 a pint and Birra Moretti (Italian) on draught, as well as the more customary Heineken, Fosters, Three Hop, Guinness and Strongbow cider. There is also an extensive wine list, featuring wines from eight different countries and a varied and imaginative cocktail menu, including the unappealingly named “Venezuelan Treacle.” Moderately expensive meals are served every day from noon until 10 p.m. The large bar room has a raised floor section in one corner designated as the dining area, although food is served throughout. The toilets are inconveniently located downstairs. There is also a small outdoor seating area at the front, looking on to the busy Partick Cross.

Checked out the Butterfly and the Pig West last weekend. Real ales,like the Corncrake I bought, cost £4 a pint. Very nice but expensive. It had seats, sofas & armchairs. The postcode on the Yelp site and mcpubs.com is G11 6PL. Please amend.

This place only opened about five years ago, on the ground floor of a newly constructed block of residential flats, but since then it has already gone by several different names. With so many long established pubs nearby, it’s difficult to see why another one was built at all, and it’s certainly not one of the better drinking options in the vicinity. Its current incarnation has a bar/diner, rather than a traditional pub, atmosphere. There is a small area reserved specifically for diners, in addition to the large lounge, although food is served throughout. The seating consists mostly of sofas around low tables, although there are half a dozen bar stools at the counter. Subtle lighting and unobtrusive music add to the “living room” ambience. The toilets are downstairs in what looks like (and might originally have been) the basement of the block of flats. There are a few seats outdoors looking on to Partick Cross. Considering that there are so many other pubs around, prices are anything but competitive, with a pint of Summer Lightning costing me £4.40. Bitter and Twisted is also served from a hand pump and Tennent’s, Carling, Staropramen and St. Mungo lagers, Guinness and Belhaven Best are also available.
