This pub was formerly known as ‘So what comes next?’ – after a complete make-over, it has become the Kelbourne Saint. The inside has been completely transformed and now has a micro brewery feel about it with big copper vats and copper ducting snaking its way through the bar. There was a big glass rotisserie oven with bronzed chickens rolling and seeping their juices onto trays of baking vegetables. The old mezzanine level has been extended and brightened up, hanging over the shiny light filled bar with its blue booths and big welcoming tables.
The pub used to be called Crosslands, a quiet place that was made famous because one of the opening scenes to the cult Scottish movie ‘Trainspotting’ was filmed here. It’s now a very family and dog-friendly cheery big pub with character and attitude.
The outside has been enhanced more with a beer garden built with heated garden sheds and an outdoor kids area. The menu has evolved into big hearty dishes of whole or half rotisserie chickens, big pork and beef dishes with mounds of vegetables and big jugs of gravy all washed down with glasses of West Brewery ales and lagers. Every night has different meal deal specials e.g. Whole roast chicken with vegetables and a bottle of wine for £20 on a Monday.
The live music and/or DJs will continue on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and from 20:00.
The atmosphere in this once little unassuming Maryhill bar has transmogrified into a West end ‘must go’ Pub.
