This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
There’s a whole lot going on beneath this leafy residential crescent – themed-dining events, DJs, quiz nights and Six Nations Rugby equate to something for all. Spacious yet homely, it’s a true laidback local that extends a warm reception beyond its neighbours – drawing in students, families, young professionals, sports fans and book groups from afar. Sups from the tap include home-brewed St Mungo’s, Belgian Heverlee and Canadian Honey Brown lager. Slumber on a leather sofa with the Sundays, book a booth to hunker down to catch the sports action or ponder over the artwork amid twinkly lights in the glasshouse. Gastro-style pub fare at recession-friendly prices keeps the throng happy with ubiquitous classics, such as three-bean chilli, pastas, roast chicken, sirloin steak. Mainstays are decent burgers with a chunky chip poke and stonebaked pizzas 2 for-a-tenner midweek. Fishing tip: dive into a generous portion of plump whitebait with homemade tartare.
- High point: Conservatory dining for private hire is a rare find
- Low point: Lack of healthier-option desserts
The Lansdowne Bar & Kitchen is what you’d call a ‘hidden gem’ – tucked away in the lovely Lansdowne Crescent, our basement bar and restaurant has a comfortable and homely feel!! Lots of little booths and comfy couches, and a bright and airy conservatory …… we have something for everyone.
The Lansdowne, or the LBK as the regulars know it, is the perfect place to come for amazing pub grub. On a weekend the restaurant is buzzing with diners, and more than often, private parties in our conservatory!! Our menu has a little something to offer everyone; from a Haggis burger, to a Moroccan salad, to a Seafood risotto all tastes are catered for. We’ve got healthy sized portions from a head chef that really enjoys cooking good food!!
If you fancy just popping out for a wee drink we’ve got something to please everyone, for the girls we have our fantastic range of cocktails while the guys can sample our amazing range of draught beers & lagers, or vice versa; we know some guys who love our cocktails and lager is slowly becoming the new wine for some girls. We’ve also got a wide selection of wines from both the new world and the old, with favourites like the classic Pinot Grigio to new exciting organic wines.
We also offer entertainment every weekend, Fridays & Saturdays we have a really interesting mix of DJ’s playing soulful funk to soft house to retro jazz!! We have Live jazz every Sunday, but not just your traditional ‘old school jazz’ we funk it up with younger, interesting bands to keep things fresh – “The Marco Cafolla Electric Jazz Quartet” always goes down a treat.
The staff at The LBK are especially friendly, and revel on the busyness of the bar …… the busier the bar, the better the atmosphere!! The staff have a real connection with the customers, and each member of the LBK team are exceptionally friendly and helpful.

Reviews & features
Neighbourhood Watch: Great Western Road, Glasgow19 Dec 2011
Including The Captain's Rest, The Belle and Lupe Pintos
What’s it like? One big road full of pubs, cafés and little shops. Flats are mostly old tenements above the bars, restaurants and stores which go up most of the road. Where’s it, like? In the West End, a stone’s throw from Woodlands and Byres Road.
