This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
MacSorley’s ‘weel-kent face’, is one of Glasgow’s oldest drinking dens − steeped in proud Hebridean history that goes back 114 years − retaining all its glory-of-old façade, imposing dark wood interior and mosaic tiled floor. Its traditional Scottish pub fare is elevated a notch with the likes of braised shin of Aberdeen Angus beef, Stornoway black pud salad, Perthshire game terrine or Maw MacSorley’s secret recipe stovies. For reading and tasting pleasure, the beer-battered fish supper comes all wrapped up in a newspaper poke. Boasting lots of local live music, it serves up a liquid treasure chest from house ales to exotic rums. Who goes there? Anyone from Jamaica Street subculture Rastafarians, punk heads and pensioners to daytime shoppers and pre-clubbers. If the rum doesn’t rock you, then the warm spiced ginger sponge and soothing coconut ice-cream may well do.
