dickyhart's Qype profile
5 Bell Street, Merchant Square, Glasgow, Scotland G1 1NU
Expensive, but a good all round atmosphere I thought.
My friends and I sat at the candleriggs entrance, and even though there was music playing, we could still chat away and solve the problems of the world. My friend commented on how good the gin and tonics where.
I drank pints of cider all night so cant really comment on that, the others seemed happy with their Peroni beer, and the others where on Carling, which is crap, no matter how good or bad the pub!
It was'nt too crowded which suited me, and got served no problem every time, no hanging about trying to get bar staff attention.
All round pub, not too poncy for the merchant city either.

Dentist is based next to the town hall in Rutherglen Main street. You go up a tenement close into it. The surroundings are pleasant and the reception staff are very friendly. The waiting room has the usual waiting room magazines, (peoples friend, SAGA , readers digest and 3 year old crap gossip magazines)
The dentists themselves are very professional and good at their work. The dental nurse is calming if your a nervous patient IE. Me.
I was getting root treatment
The work was done fast, but not rushed, and as painless as they can possibly make it.
Not that you want to visit a dentist, but i would recommend this surgery for treatment.

went to a comedy show, lovely venue, loads of charm. bar is pricey though.

Lovely little deli in the merchant city in Glasgow, its not expensive as these places tend to be. The tea/coffee are well priced and so are the sandwiches and rolls etc. Staff are really nice. Stocks a small amount of household essentials as well, washing up liquid, etc.
They even stock the new version of creamola foam!!
24 Mill Street, Glasgow, Scotland G73 2NO
Ahh! The Millcroft, locally known as the New Orleans.
A fairly large looking pub, but its not. The lounge is quite small and the Wallace bar a bit larger with a function suite upstairs.
the lounge looks ok when you walk in, but the toilets are an absolute joke. The have the usual karaoke at the weekends. They did try live music,but the regulars put paid to that. The bar staff are efficient in their duties, if a bit impersonal. Draught Beers and lagers are limited, but a good choice of bottled drinks and spirits. The wallace bar is a typical west of scotland drinking mans establishment, very few woman go in this bit. The function suite upstairs is stuck in 1992. and has a very bizarre entrance. You have to go through the lounge area and many attending the function end up there by mistake. Not the best pub in the world, but not the worst either. its unpretentious and doesnt claim to be something it isnt. Got taken over by Belhaven breweries recently and they have knocked out any soul it had left.

Seems to have went downhill a bit recently, maybe its the different staff, dunno!! shame.
Rutherglen is full of various takeaways of varying standards. This is the new guy on the main street. First thing you notice is how spotless the place is on entering. The staff looking busy cleaning or cooking. The choice of pizzas is immense as is indian food. Every pizza ive had has tasted fresh and has been lovely. They dont hold back with the toppings. They boast using fresh ingredients rather than frozen stuff. Their chicken korma is to die for, as is their curry. I take a nan bread rather than rice, and its always heated to perfection. They have a "chippy" section as well, and the food is nice. Although the only let down seem to be the chips themselves. They can be quite mushy and have had them undercooked at one point. Although I was given fresh chips and a refund. The staff are friendly and you can have a joke with them while you are waiting on your meal. I wouldve gave five stars but for their chips. Can get a bit busy at pub kicking out time, but this is to be expected.

If your looking for new and 2nd hand furnishings, this is the place to go in rutherglen. The owner is a very nice man, who will chat away with you and not try and force a sale. He will help you out if your restricted financially. From suites to beds, to pots pans and ornaments, hes got it. Pop in every now and agian and he may have a special one off!! PC's for £100 folks cant argue with that.
He also gives free delivery to all items locally. Dont be put off where the premises is, its actually quite a nice shop inside. Oh yes and he buys furniture from you as well.
48 Buchanan Street, Princes Square, Glasgow, Scotland G1 3JX
Went in here for the first time on meeting a friend for lunch. Always avoided it as Princes Square always seemed an overpriced posh place to me. But in we went anyway. My friend had been before. Two course meal for £7.95 each. Not bad I thought, got given the menu, although the choice was limited it was nice.
The chicken noodle soup was lovely and the crispy shredded beef was wonderful. The fried rice was perfect and not greasy as it sometimes can be form takeaways
My mate had sesame toast followed by Chicken in blackbean sauce and he said they where very nice. after that and two irn brus and a diet coke, bill was just shy of £24.00
Which i thought was good value. The service was fast and the meal wasent rushed. The waitress even remembered my friend who hadnt been there for two years.
Interesting vist if your into this sort of thing. I like it, but its expensive to visit. Get the guided tour then go for an explore about on your own. The gift shop is hidiously expensive and i still cant get my head around why there is Nazi memoribila on show??
Scotland's Secret Bunker is not secret any more. It was hidden very well inside an innocent looking farmhouse, but the changed political situation, the out of date technology and perhaps the lacking financial resources, still made it public. Privatizing this money trap seems a good idea to save tax money and the place is good for an interesting day out too.
The bunker was planned as a hideout for up to 300 members of the Scottish government in the event of a nuclear war. 2,800 phone lines should allow co-ordinating fire-fighting and medical help from here. The machinery to run this bunker is really impressive: the air condition with filters to remove radioactive particles, is able to move 1,500 cubic metre's of air every minute.
The bunker is entered through an innocent looking farmhouse. A 150m long tunnel leads down to the bunker, which is protected by 3m thick reinforced concrete. The bunker is entered through blast proof doors weighing three tons. Then the long tunnel leads to the main bunker with its communication centers and switchboards.
On exhibition is also some machinery above the surface. There is a large numer of military vehicles and a unique anti-aircraft missile.
102 Battlefield Road, Glasgow, Scotland G42 9JN
Co-op across the road form the Victoria Infirmary. Well placed next to the mainn road.
This shop has got to be one of the worst designed shops in history. The lanes are so small moving around inside them with your basket is almost impossible. They seem to sell very overpriced pointless stuff at well inflated prices. Any decent prices are on things you dont actually need. Fruit and veg is expensive and so are basics. The system to queue in the shop is terrible. Everyone goes down one of the shopping lanes getting in each others way. The staff are generally slow, but pleasant. They o ly have one staff member behind the counter at peak times. I wouldnt like to be disabled in this shop.
On the up side, there is a cash machine outside that does not charge for use and it got long opening hours.
