One of Glasgow's oldest pubs fits its West End location with comfort, style, and a great range of beer and food.
This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.
Curlers Rest has a backstory taking in King Charles II and Victorian-era ice-skating. Today it bears the hallmarks of a village pub dropped in a city, whose dim-lit atmosphere works best upstairs in front of the wood fire with a pint from one of the 24 draught lines. Its various nooks provide differing atmospheres, giving student groups and young families a favourite spot. The food perfectly matches its environment – all earthy and unpretentious. Small plates stir up a moreish kale and goat's cheese croquette, while flatbreads put a rustic spin on pub pizzas. The farmyard burger, a curious composition of beef patty, pork confit and fried egg, is a knife and fork job for all but the widest of jaws. There's a touch more delicacy in a sea bass fillet, as fresh as it is flaky, and surrounded by deep-red heritage potatoes, while Sunday roast is a particular highlight.
