WEST on the Green

Templeton Building, Glasgow Green, GLASGOW, G40 1AW

'Glaswegian heart, German head' is the strapline this buzzy brewpub and restaurant uses as it's the only UK brewery producing beers in accordance with Germany's Purity Law of 1516, which means no additives, colourings or preservatives. It occupies the old Winding House of a former carpet factory, modelled by its Victorian architect on the Doge's Palace in Venice. Look down into the brewhouse from the beer hall and watch the brewers making artisanal lagers and wheat beers, including GPA, St Mungo, Dunkel and Hefeweizen. Brewery tours are conducted on selected days of the week. The all-day menu has a German flavour too, offering reibeküchen; spätzle; currywurst; bayrischer wurstsalat; brotaufstriche; and jägerschnitzel. If these choices don't appeal you can also choose from grills, burgers and other British pub grub. For dessert are apple strudel; pear and frangipane tart; and, in a nod to the past, Black Forest gâteau. There is a large beer garden and brunch is available at weekends. October's Fridays are Oktoberfest beer festival days.
