Great early evening if solo - Edit

I often travel about alone so finding places that I don’t feel weird in at dinner can be difficult. This was cosy and hipster enough that being solo wasn’t an issue, it just gets busy around 6 though so table hogging is about as weird as it gets. So much choice of food too, including an extensive specials board (wish I’d spotted the cauliflower curry!) and few pud options. Chips were the hand cut rustic-style. So good and tasted very wholesome (there were lentils in the burger!)

Pros: choice, nice area - Argyle St is like the creative quarter

Cons: chips are pre-salted so may be an issue if you don, busy - most the tables were reserved when I got th

delicious food, great atmosphere - Edit

I don’t know if it was the fireplace, or the lovely people, but i felt like home straightaway at The 78. The soup warmed me from head to toe- so hearty and delicious. Go and try everything!

Trendy & Delicious - Edit

I loved the location and vibe of this place! It is in a very hip part of Glasgow and though it was busy when we came in, they made a place for us and we shared our table with another couple! The food was amazing with tons of yummy looking options (so tough to make a decision!) and I will definitely be back some day.

Great bar/restaurant - Edit

A really nice bar and restaurant in Glasgow's west end. The prices are decent and there is a student discount of 10%. We got burgers and hummus and we couldn't even finish!
The atmosphere is really nice, it is worth to check them out if you enjoy live music.

Pros: Fulfilling , Nice atmosphere

Cons: Often crowded

A vegan delight - Edit

Had the pleasure of visiting the 78 twice this year and it is safe to say it is our favourite place to go when in Glasgow. The staff are very friendly and the food is excellent. On our first visit we ordered two starters that were coconut and bean chilli nachos served with jalapenos, sour cream, chilli jam and salsa and the soup of the day, which was roasted garlic, celeriac and fennel with crusty bread. Both starters were delicious and full of flavour. For mains we ordered the refried bean and coconut chilli wrap and quesadillas filled with refried beans, vegan cheese, jalapeños, served with salad. Both dishes were excellent and nicely spiced and generous in portion size. This was washed down with a refreshing wheat beer, all for a grand total of £27 after our 10% NUS cards had been applied. On our second visit we went solely for the Sunday roast, which was mushroom wellington roast and vegetables. The wellington was amazing with the earthy vegetables and delicious gravy complimenting the dish superbly. It was a shame to finish, it was so nice. For dessert we shared a lemon and poppy seed cake with cream, which was so light and delicate and delicious in flavour. Our Sunday dinner was complete and we went home extremely satisfied. A must visit.

Pros: Excellent food, Friendly staff, Student discount

Glasgow's Vegan Must-Eat - Edit

For me, The 78 is always a safe bet. Whenever I have friends visiting Glasgow, I invite them there to show them how scrumptious and great vegan food can be.
I especially like the vibe of the place: the reggae music is definitely a plus.
Portions are large and satisfying. I recommend the “The Classic 78 Burger”, my all-time favourite, but the Quesadilla is also amazing. Oh, and ask for the home-made garlic mayo!

vegan pub food - Edit

The place is really nice with good atmosphere, it is really pub food though (quesadillas, curry, burger) and not the most healthy. Service wasn't that good.

kids welcome - Edit

I did visit in February and wrote an average review which was generous as I didn't get to eat due to poor service.
I was glad to get back and eat, all with some really good service. It was lunchtime and quiet which is maybe a good time to visit and there were a few specials on top of the normal menu.
We had a hummus platter, a lentil soup, a bean and coconut weap and the falafel burger. All the meals were good and the portion size big. The burger was a tad dry, but tasty.
Its a great environment with big and small table and I imagine has a great atmosphere when busy. There is plenty of choice for anyone and it really is worth a visit
Had another recent visit where the food was decent but not exceptional. Love how kid friendly this place is.

Pros: vegan, Large portions, Great bar

Cons: service?

Awesome pub food in cozy setting - Edit

Vegan pub!! The place was super cozy - perfect for ducking in out of the rain as we did. There is even a fireplace and some couches.

We tried the quesadilla and burger, with soup and chips and a brownie with ice cream for dessert. Everything was delicious! The burger was phenomenal, one of the best veggie burgers I've had. They mix soy mince with veggies and the result is so tasty! Chips were great as well - hand cut too.

The brownie was fantastic, warmed and served with super creamy vanilla ice cream. Even my partner loved it and he's not a huge brownie fan (strange, I know).

The quesadilla was tasty as well but I think some of the filling could be served on the side so you'd get more of a cheesy texture. Still, it was great.

Would definitely come back!

Pros: Atmosphere, Food - especially burger and brownie

Perfect Vegan Pub - Edit

I came here with my non-veggie husband, and we both loved it. We had the small nachos to start, and then I had the quesadilla. So good. My husband had the special 3 bean burger which wasn't nearly as good as the quesadilla, but still tasty. I was so full, but I couldn't resist having a scoop of their ice cream which was also delicious. If I lived in the area, I would come here all the time. Very reasonably priced as well!

Sunday Roast and All Day Breakfast - Edit

We had the Sunday roast and the all day breakfast on Sunday.
I loved the Scottish potato scone on the all day breakfast, 2 linda mccartney sausages, mushrooms, baked beans, pototo and sweet potato, comes with juice or tea/coffee. the rest of the breakfast wasn't massively exciting. The roast (vegetable wellington) was lovely. Good sized portions. We had the chocolate and strawberry cake served with cream. It was dry and not marvelous.
Student discount is available on all food

Pros: lovely sunday roast, lots of tables, lovely light venue, student discount

Cons: dry cake

Improved menu - Edit

I've been a few times and been less than overwhelmed by the food, however a visit a couple of weeks ago showed the menu has been improved. The classic burger has had a makeover and for the better. The only issue I always have is the poor coffee - the soy milk is always split and the coffee is less than warm. So I now save my cash and just get tap water instead

Pros: Handy location

Cons: Slow service and often left sitting waiting, Coffee is not great

Cute and delicious! - Edit

This place is excellent! We were lucky to be staying just around the corner while visiting Glasgow and went here for dinner one night! The staff are gorgeous and incredibly friendly, and the bar has a cute vibe!

We got the 78 burger and the special burger, both were absolutely delicious! They were also huge so we didn't manage to finish either, which was a shame. We didn't want to turn up desert, but we're incredibly full, so the girl working was lovely enough to give us the Sticky date pudding and brownie to take away and they were huge and amazing!

I would definitely frequent this place if I lived here!

Pros: Delicious , Huge portions, Warm and friendly

Amazing pub - Edit

Super friendly staff and they took time to go through their beers to recommend which one it would be best accordingly to my taste, it was delicious. Burger was good and soup very good too. The dessert was good too but not impressed. Will come back for sure.

One of my favourites! - Edit

This place I automatically but on my best list!

They were more than friendly and helpful and oh so caring to our puppy! He was given things to play with and water while we enjoyed our enormous plates of food! We had the house burger and fries and Quesedilla! Everything was perfect and we absolutely DO recommend!

The place also has a vegan bar and has the coziest living room feel!! ;)
