The Old School House: full marks, ten out of ten, well done

Being a neighbour of the Stand Comedy Club, The Old School House is a bar where you're as likely to bump into up-and-coming comedians (Kevin Bridges and Frankie Boyle have been spotted here) as you are sports fans attracted by the many large and small-screen TVs with two Sky boxes. The meal deals help make it a favourite with University of Glasgow students and their lecturers, as well as with locals. Good service, free wifi, a pool table, a juke box, a snug that accommodates around 30 and a Monday-night 'Sorry Smartphone' quiz, all make it so much more enjoyable than your schooldays. For those still at school, there's a special family area where children are welcome until 8pm.
