Blackthorn _ left this review about The Pot Still

A small pub located just off one of Glasgow’s main thoroughfares and a short stroll from the shopping district, it’s a traditional looking pub with green paintwork on the outside and etched glass in the windows, as well as some stained glass in the orch.

Internally it’s quite compact and quite traditional in terms of décor with a wood strip floor and a high ceiling that had some quite elaborate cornice work in places. The bar counter took up much of the left hand side, and this was quite impressive with a very extensive range of whisky bottles stretching on shelving all the way up to the ceiling. Handily there was a ladder there to allow the bar staff to reach the upper levels. Fitted and padded bench seating was off to the right, with further seating up a couple of steps at the rear. A number of old black and white photographs of the locale and the river were dotted around the walls, whilst a small TV was up above the porch, although it was not in use on my visit. A sign said that this was apparently Scotland’s best pub, although I think that was based on it being awarded the AA Pub of the Year in 2018.

Beers on tap were Skye Black, Cairngorm Trade Winds, Orkney Gold and Orkney Northern Light. The solitary cider meanwhile was Magners. Overall I thought this was a great pub, and if only they improved the cider selection it would be a real cracker.

5 years on and I return to the same pub, this time on the way back from Still Game at the Hydro - rather than on the way there.

An absolute joy. There are signs throughout the city that say "people make Glasgow". Never is that more true that in here - lovely locals, very accommodating to the people that travel all over the world to sample the reputation.

Loved it.

Sadly I hit this place at probably the worst possible time, office kicking out on a weekday. Despite that I did manage to get a crowded seat but couldn't see what the beers were at the bar due to people hogging stools.
It's been well described below but is basically a small Scottish bar with a split level room and the bar counter on the left.
There are four hand pumps and spotted the familiar clip of Knops Musselburgh Broke (£3.50) which was in good nick and not overpriced.
I thought this place was OK but would try and return at a quieter time.
It's GBG 2018 listed.
