Really tasty food, we got chicken wings, burgers and mac and cheese so tried various items on the menu and none disappointed.. Massive portions too which we loved. We were the only ones in during the week so the service was great, but I assume it would be this way during busy periods. Professional and responsible Setup to deal with social distancing and heightened hygiene post covid lockdown. All in all no negatives during our visit. Thank you guys

Amazing chicken wings - absolutely huge with lots of meat on them so they were very filling.

Massive selection of bourbon and other spirits. Nice atmosphere.

Really Great food and the atmosphere is relaxing, the staff were nice and accommodating, my only critique is that my pork sandwich had to much onion and I had to take off the pork and eat that as I have a small allergy to onions,

Didn’t realise it was eating in the middle of a pub. Seemed like a good pub but very busy with it being a Saturday night and football being on.

On a super busy night with music on in 2 nearby venues, we had a lovely night with good food. Service was really nice and friendly, one guy seemed to be working alone and coping with loads all at once. We did wait for food, but it worth waiting for and we had a fun time all the same.

Popped in for my first time the other night. Delighted with the food and service. We had the ribs, mac cheese, chicken wings and halloumi fries. All exceptional.

We actually had just tried to get into Bucks in town that was full and honestly I cannot see how Bucks food could have been any better that this. Really top notch barbecue food. Will definitely be back.

The food is good. The only thing letting the score down was the first time I came here they ran out of pulled pork and the second time they ran out of ribs. This was mid afternoon full menu should be available

Van Winkle for drinks n nosh before a gig at St Luke's across the street. Busy but had a table booked. Great atmosphere, wee buzz but no problem for all 6 of us to chat. Solid pub grub, reasonably priced, all nice n hot a good service. All good really; an excellent new option for pre gigs at St Luke's or Barrowland which is also across the street. Thanks VanWinkle staff👍🏻👍🏻

Myself, and 3 other went here before attending a gig at the Barrowlands, which if you don't know, is a very short walk away.
Table was reserved for us, service was prompt and unhurried.
Added bonus, one of the members of the band we were out to see was also there.
Food was great, big portions, so watch what you order, price including drinks for the four of us was a very reasonable £60.
Recommended if you're in the area

Despite booking on line and having the email the waiter said he didn’t have our booking. We were then told that the advertised deal was not on despite arriving at 1840 and it being advertised until 7pm. Food and ambience were good but service wasn’t great.
