Usual crass, Irish theme bar. Could be any one of a million pubs in any one of a thousand cities.

The Bon Accord
The "Bon" was and still is a decent Real Ale outlet. However, what was a very good pricing policy of all ales being the same price irrelevant of strength has now turned into a minus. To pay £2.90 for a 3.4% ale is extremely greedy especially when there are 3 Wethersopoons outlets within 10 minutes walk. In summer the ales tend to "warm up" indicating the cellar refridgeration is unable to cope with the increase in ambient temperature.
In my humble opinion the Bon Accord is still worth a visit but not the mecca it once was .

Thai Orchid

Never again
A group of us meet every month for a few beers and a meal . As we had originally started out as a curry club , most of our experiences were based on the Glasgow Indian scene. We had however occasionally strayed to Chinese and Malaysian.The wonderful Rumours and even more wonderful Asia Style deing two of those. Our sole forray into Thai had been a fairly good delve at Thai Siam on Argyle Street but one of our number suggested Thai Orchid maily due to its location in Central Glasgow and to a lesser extent on favourable reviews we had read.
From the moment we entered until the moment we left we could not have wished for a more chaotic,unprofessional and overall disappointing experience.
It took 20 minutes to receive our starters. Two of which were cold and had to be sent back. The waitresses were more interested in enquiring as to our drinks needs than our food ones.Twice, the wrong entrees were brought and again one of our number had to send it back to the kitchen to be reheated.The standard of service in general was so poor that we refused to tip which is just not our style.The bill came to £160.00 for 5 of us which really was money for old rope.
I would recommend anyone to avoid the Thai Orchid unless they want overcharged,badly served and under valued as customers. As the title hints we will be dining elsewhere on our monthly socials.
