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!! ;)

Absolutely delicious! - Edit

We enjoyed a fabulous vegan lunch - a 78 burger + vegan cheese, and a quesadilla - which were just the thing for a chilly damp August day before a quick 5 minute walk to Kelvingrove Art Gallery up the road. Everything was well cooked, fresh and flavourful, and I'm afraid we couldn't resist the desserts (brownie + ice cream and today's cake respectively) which were also delicious. Service was pleasant and efficient, and the place - though nothing much from the outside - was simple and stylish inside with plenty of room (just as well as the tables filled fairly fast!) with sofas as well as the main dining area. Dog-friendly too! Recommended.

Pros: Good food, Friendly service, Nice ambience

Cons: Could easily walk past unexciting exterior

I love this place - Edit

Great vegan pub/restaurant. Laid back with a real fire in the winter. No animal produce in anything they serve. Some of their beers are specially produced without isinglass so don't assume the same brands will be safe elsewhere.

I love the nachos and vegan breakfast on the weekend, and the coconut chilli refried bean wrap is amazing. i can't get enough of the spicy chips and vegan mayo. On a Thursday they have a limited set menu - eats and beats or something, with reggae music. it's always good but is obviously the chef's night off as it's just one starter, main and pud. I tend to go other nights with the full menu.

Staff are always super friendly and helpful, they know everything about the menu or will go and find out straight away if you have questions. My carnivore partner always wants to go back here so it's our favourite place!

Pros: the whole place is animal free, staff friendly and

Cons: not keen on the limited Thursday menu, but everyon

Happy days! - Edit

The 78 was fabulous! In Glasgow for the weekend, and obviously couldn't go past such a great all-vegan place.. and it did not disappoint! Great menu, friendly staff and such a warm atmosphere. I had the special, the Big Mac burger (yum!) and the nachos to start (which were so so good).. The only downside, I truly could not fit in dessert (which also looked amazing at the table next door)! But, there is always next time :)

Pros: Menu selection, Value for money, Atmosphere

Cons: No chips because the fryer wasn't working (althoug

Top marks! - Edit

The food is just delicious, I've tried several main courses and they've all been fantastic. Do save space for deserts they are to die for, especially the sticky toffee pudding :-)
It has a lovely, informal chilled vibe & the staff have always been great.
Another plus- you can take your dog in, so civilzed!
I'll definitely be back.

Pros: Delicious food, Relaxed & friendly atmosphere, Dog- friendly

Cons: None
