The Duke’s Umbrella is a new Glasgow pub from the team behind Royal Exchange Square’s  “Glaschu” which opened during the eye of the pandemic storm in 2020.

The latest pub, which has a rustic, artisan feel, is fronted by John Molloy, Development Chef alongside General Manager Craig McKay. It will offer quality gastro pub food alongside an eclectic selection of real ales, fine wines and signature cocktails.

The pub will soon suggests Molloy be recognised as  “the best fish and chips in Scotland”.

Development Chef John Molloy said, “I’ve always wanted to cook gastropub food. It’s honest, full of flavour, and for too long this style of food has been overlooked and has slipped into mediocrity. We will be giving our food the attention it deserves and treating the ingredients in the same way fine dining restaurants do. All while maintaining a relaxed atmosphere and delivering the sort of food you’ve always wanted from your local.”

“We’ve curated a menu from the finest produce, in which the ingredient is the hero of the dish, we’re keeping presentation simple, fuss free and full of flavour.”

The Duke’s Umbrella’s is situated on the corner of Argyle Street and James Watt Street and will open on 17th May.
