This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
The Curler’s Rest has come on leaps and bounds since its drastic refurbishment a few years back, transforming it from a subway-friendly student haunt into a sophisticatedly designed gastropub. Fusing classic menu combinations, including stews, steak, burgers and pizza, there is commitment to locally sourced produce with flashes of home-grown brilliance layered through the selection of eye-catching hearty meals. With its inviting low-lit environment, the Curler’s Rest feels like a shelter from the storm, replete with mahogany fixtures, fireplace and wraparound booths. Under its new guise it has cemented itself as a mainstay on this popular stretch of Byres Road, picking up a lot of footfall from students, young professionals and settled artist types. It’s safe to say that it has come into its own as a true all-rounder in an area of the city known for its extensive food and drink options, and is above all is a great place to feed and water yourself in style.
