The Victoria & Albert was situated beneath Glasgow’s SDtock Exchange. The pub provided traditional food and attentive service with charm and elegance, reminiscent of an age when these were taken for granted. The restaurant offered a superb fixed price menu of two or three courses, representing remarkable value for money. Its location, close to the Royal Concert Hall and the Theatre Royal makes it suitable for dining and drinking before or after performances, and being so near to Queen Street Station offers the traveller civilised respite! Its bar was ideal for morning coffee served with home made shortbread and light meals were served throughout the day.
