GSU would like to thank the subway staff and an extra special thank you to The Bellrock Bar which is by far the best pub on the crawl, the Karaoke was great and atmosphere brill and thanks to all the staff in all the other bars we all had the best day. Subcrawl Rocks!
Graham Roofing (Scotland) Ltd used the Clockwork Orange Pub Crawl to form part of our Team Building Day. We visited The Lismore, Munros, Jacksons, Times Square, Hard Rock Cafe and finished in The Hill Byres Road all of the bar staff were friendly and we would recommend a visit to all of the above bars!
We would like to thank everyone who took part and to all staff in the Lismore, Munros, Jacksons, Times Square, Hard Rock Café, The Hill and SPT! All of the photos have been added to our Facebook page. Thanks again everyone for making it an enjoyable day!
Just completed the Subcrawl and thought it was a great day out. Started at St Enoch and we were welcomed at every bar along the way. Abided by the "no sitting and no hanging on to anything while on the subway trains" rule - which resulted in a few "penalty" shots being consumed by the offenders. Started at 4.30pm and got back into city about 11pm - with a subway sandwich consumed along the way for sustenance. Would recommend this as a great way to experience some of Glasgow's more traditional bars while having a laugh.
Mimmo's has changed management and is now called MANHATTANS BAR/DINER on 235 St Andrews Road a 5 min walk from Shields Road subway
the riverfront on bridge street has changed management and is very welcoming when a sub crawl arrives. been renovated and staff are nice.
Is 5 and a half hours a pint in each pub a good time?
Went on the crawl and we found an alternative to the honours three, the bellrock in kinning park made us feel more than welcome and we were given some games to play and free raffles and shots for the birthday boy. Wasn't splashed with rangers colours and there was a home game that day and to be honest we couldn't have been made to feel anymore welcome. Highly recommended above all other bars south of the Clyde :)
am sure the stadium bar is shut now as well, drove past it and it looked boarded up
The Glaswegian lost its licence for a year due to sectarian issues (offensive singing / fighting etc..) but has since reopened as The Riverfront. Don't know if the same clientele still frequent it so can't comment on its suitability. The Laurieston and Sou'wester opposite, although classed as "old mens pubs" are worth a visit for a pie and pint before resuming the crawl.
The Hayburn at Partick has changed hands and was refurbished, reopening just before Xmas and renamed the Doc'n'Doris.
stanley bar nw of shields rd stop instead of honours three
Did this with a 25-strong crew on Saturday, starting at Bridge Street and getting a shot in a pint in each bar. Was quite eventful, but we didn't have any trouble - most pubs were glad to have us in! We only made it to ST George's Cross before skipping the last 3 in favour of the Sub Club, but all in all a brilliant night and one I wouldn't hesitate in recommending.
The Glaswegian (now closed) is not the mandatory pub for the Bridge Street stop. On the other side opposite The Glaswegian, there is The Laurieston and the Sou'Wester, both what would be termed as "old man's pubs" but worth a beer. The Stanley Bar on Stanley Street is an option if The Honours Three is closed. A bit of advice for first timer Sub Crawlers - if you are crawling on a Saturday afternoon, make sure it's a Rangers away game Saturday as all the pubs south of the river are Rangers pubs and they don't take kindly to an influx of sub Crawl tourists on a footie day.
We enjoyed what was a long and tiring day. Starting at St. Enoch's, we were totally knackered by the time we got to Buchanan Street to finish off the night. The pubs at West Street Station are too far away so we just got back on the Subway and moved on to the next station and as there is nothing nearby to the now closed "The Honours Three" we just stayed on to the next stop. The Subway service was good but a couple of the stations are a bit out of the way. (pp The Stuckies and The Glasses)
The Glaswegian removed and The Bridge Street Stop set to Laurieston.
The Glaswegian pub has closed down too.... I think due to Sectarianism and their love of Orange (and not the Clockwork Orange!). The Bridge Street Stop needs to be the Laurieston now and another pub for the West Streeet stop. I am doing it this Saturday so will investigate
am doing this soon we are taking plastic cups and a bottle of pocheen and will drink it on train at the station with no pubs still a drink at all stops
We are currently debating this issue for the next tubey.
Likley to 'The Old Toll Bar' as we like to eat before it gets messy !
It is even longer than the tramp to Honours III at 700m.
You can link to or see more tubey or tube crawl information on our blog http://tubecrawl.wordpress.com/
Doing this on 24th May and had a different list of pubs. Must be a long walk if Honours Three is closed down.
The status of Honours Three has now been updated to closed. There don't seem to be any other nearby pubs in our database, if someone does have a suggestion for a pub we don't have please use the Add Pub Page to add the pub to our database.
Have been on this pub crawl , really good but no photos allowed inside the underground stations( so we found out!!)
I have friends who want to do this crawl on 18th April but as Honours Three has been shut down by the police (Evening Times- 7th March09) what is the alternative pub you are recommending for this stop on the route?
