Franco's Glasgow

Franco’s – (Another) New name, new vibe

This pub was formerly known as The Kelbourne Saint – after a complete make-over, it has become Franco’s. The inside has been transformed again and now has a micro brewery feel about it with big copper vats and copper ducting snaking its way through the bar. The giant chicken rotisserie had been replaced by an open kitchen hatch. Tgefoid had bern scsled down to burgers, dogs and puzas with quirky twist. The old mezzanine level has been kitted out with dartboard and pinball machine and brightened up, hanging over the shiny light filled bar with its blue booths and standing bar room ‘boozer’  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 been paired down to give Franco’s more of a pub feel as opposed to its previous family restaurant guide. The food is simple and cheerful all washed down with glasses of West Brewery ales and lagers. Every night has different meal deal specials e.g. Pizza and a pint for £8.

The live music and/or DJs will continue on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and from 20:00 with a quiz night on Mondays.

Thus dog friendly pub has doggy dinner menu and even doggy beers!
