Blackfriars set to re-open


One of Glasgow’s best-known pubs, Blackfriars, is planning to re-open as early as next month as it undergoes extensive refurbishment.

New owners, the team behind  gastro pub The Duke’s Umbrella and restaurant and bar space Gōst, promise that Blackfriars will come back ‘bigger and better than ever’

Owner Andy McCartney said, “Glasgow was sad to see Blackfriars shut as another casualty of the pandemic; however, we’re delighted to bring back this Glasgow establishment to the people. With so many exciting things in store, we’re looking forward to welcoming back Blackfriars regulars, as well as new customers.”

He continued, “Expect an updated gantry and extensive whisky range, as well as traditional real ales and craft beers; all to wash down the extraordinary new menu being curated by our Group Development Chef John Molloy.”

Group development chef John Molloy added, “Without giving too much away just yet, we will be serving up the kind of rustic pub food that goes perfectly with our range of craft beers and ales. Think mussels cooked in wheat beer, burgers with beer-infused cheese sauce, hotdogs topped with chilli cheese bites, and a range of homemade pies that will keep you coming back for more.”
