Review from 2017 as a public bar: The design and décor of the Drugstore Social is clear evidence that they believe fine food and drink to be good medicine for the soul – you'll find no snake oil salesmen in here. Perhaps put the health kick on hold as sharing platters abound from the compact kitchen, with cured meats, pickled vegetables and sumptuous cheeses that well prepare you for the rustic and deeply satisfying mains to follow. The selection on offer looks like a poachers’ hitlist with shredded pheasant gamekeeper's pie, paper-baked fish of the day and venison with lemon and thyme gremolata to pick from. The wines are well chosen, and the selection of cocktails mixed with authority, with some coming in punch bowls and bottles to share, brimming with fresh ingredients and homemade concoctions. While this beautifully wood-panelled and pharmaceutically minded bar sits subtly in a quiet backstreet at the foot of Yorkhill, it's only a matter of time until it becomes the drop-in place for people to get their fix.
