Iron Horse in Glasgow City

Iron Horse | Glasgow City


Share on:

The Iron Horse is one of Glasgow’s oldest and well-loved pubs.

Glaswegians have been eating and drinking here since 1872. For many years the pub was called “The Empire Bar” and served the theatregoers and stars of the famous Empire Theatre round the corner.

Some of our customers have told us about going to see some of the biggest stars in the world at the Empire (“Frank Sinatra was rubbish!”). The back door of the theatre sat opposite the bar so everyone piled in at the interval for a quick dram. The Empire kept it’s name till the 60’s when it changed to the Iron Horse. The pub had a railway and Wild West theme.

After a couple of name changes in the 70s and 80s the pub re-opened in the early 90s as the Iron Horse and has been family-run since then. Our first floor and basement bars are available to hire as private function rooms. We host birthday parties, weddings, works parties and club meetings. Our main bar on the ground floor operates as a traditional Scottish pub.

Popular with all ages, we are a City Centre “local” for lots of Glaswegians. And we are a home from home for many visitors from all over the world who come back again and again.

We have a well-stocked bar and everyone loves our menu with home-made Scottish classics. These include haggis, steak pie and mince & tatties. We pride ourselves on our friendly atmosphere and everyone is welcome to our weekend karaoke nights.
