The Counting House, Glasgow, Scotland


The Counting House is one of the Wetherspoons Pubs in the centre of Glasgow, Scotland. It is situated opposite St George’s Square and near Queen Street Train Station. It is always warm and busy and bustling. Orders for both drinks and meals are made at the bar and paid for at the time of ordering. If you are ordering food remember to note your table number before going to the bar! Sometimes it can be difficult to get a table at peak times.

There are a wide variety of meals and snacks on offer. Food is served from breakfast time through lunch until dinner at night. Meals on offer range from usual pub fare of pies, burgers or fish and chips to vegetarian meals, curry, chilli or steaks. Most recently I was there for lunch with my sister. We both took advantage of a meal deal that included drinks in the price. We had burgers and a soft drink followed by Earl Gray tea.

The building itself is an old bank. It is quite grand. The pub is clean and the staff polite. Although the trek to the restrooms may require a packed lunch and a map, the walk is so long, there is no doubt I will go visit here again. Our meal was inexpensive and very tasty.
