Long-running mac 'n' cheese haunt found in the city centre down a cobbled lane.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

Every city needs a place famed for its mac’n’cheese and in Glasgow, it’s Sloans. The pub, set down an atmospheric cobbled lane off Buchanan Street and reputed to be among the oldest in town, is even home to Scotland’s Macaroni Appreciation Club (yes, it’s a thing) as if further proof is needed of its local speciality pasta pedigree. Set back from the main thoroughfare of Buchanan Street, it excels in good, affordable pub grub done right – mac ’n’ cheese, obviously, with various toppings including parmesan and blush tomatoes, an excellent steak pie, or hog roast bap and apple sauce. What's more, a cap is doffed to locality in its sourcing, with bread from popular bakery Tapa and there is also a range of entertainment during the week that keeps punters and staff busy, including a pub quiz, musical bingo, a folk night and film nights.
