The Drum & Monkey

A child friendly pub serving food with Sky TV in Glasgow.

You will find The Drum and Monkey just a short stroll from the famous King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut down St. Vincent’s Street. By contrast to the nearby venue, it is traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served with a generous measure of famous Scottish hospitality.

The pub itself is a former American style bank building, carefully converted to retain an air of grandeur. Built in 1924 by the eminent architect Andrew Balfour, the style has been compared to classical American architecture of the time. The venue also celebrates the history of St. Vincent Street, on which it sits, which marks the British sea victory over the French off the coast of Spain in 1797.

The Drum and Monkey is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.

Drink % Brewery
Becks 5.0 Becks

Every bottle of Becks is brewed according to the uncompromising German Reinheitsgebot (Purity law). With a strong and committed heritage, Becks has had only 6 brew masters throughout a 125 year history.

Tasting Notes: Our original Becks is a classic German lager beer with a distinctive full-bodied taste, fresh "hoppy" bouquet, golden colour and a full rich head. Adding to its complexity is a slightly fruity but firm crispness and a dry, clean finish.

Bitter & Twisted 3.8 Harviestoun Brewery Ltd

Bitter & Twisted was allegedly named after the brewer’s wife. A refreshingly lively blonde beer with a tingly, lemony finish, it goes down a whole lot better than his little joke did.

Tasting Notes: There’s some caramel malt in here for a hint of sweetness, along with a few oats to add some body to the brew. And that beautiful, fruity aroma you’re getting comes from a delicate balance of Hersbrucker, Celeia, Perle and Bobek hops. This is the connoisseur's session beer par excellence.

Carling Extra Cold 4.1 Coors Brewers Ltd

We know that perfection is a big claim to make but how else could we describe the masterful blend that balances depth of flavour with the thirst quenching refreshment of the UK’s no.1 lager.

Tasting Notes: 

Corona Extra 4.6 Grupo Modelo

Lighter than traditional beers, it holds a crisp and refreshing taste. A light dry beer very pleasant malt and hop notes with a round finish.

Tasting Notes: 

Deuchars IPA 3.8 Caledonian Brewery

Distinctive and long on refreshment. Solid gold in colour, remarkably aromatic, hints of fresh citrus, distinctive light malt and fresh floral flavours, refreshing zesty citric hop, for a mouth-watering finish.

Tasting Notes: Distinctively radiant, deliciously refreshing, Deuchars is a fabulous balance of malt and hops. Discerning beer drinkers consider this to be the benchmark in quality cask beer and for those new to cask, it's the perfect introduction.

Duvel 8.5 Duvel Moortgat Brewery

Duvel is a natural beer with a subtle bitterness, a refined flavour and a distinctive hop character. The unique brewing process, which takes about 90 days, guarantees a pure character, delicate effervescence and a pleasant sweet taste of alcohol.

Tasting Notes: The beer is determined by the temperature. Duvel obtains its typical bitterness by adding various varieties of aromatic Slovenian and Czech hops. We use only exclusive hops that are renowned for their constant, outstanding quality.

Guinness Extra Cold 4.3 Guinness

Black as the night with a creamy tan head with a coffee and mild roasted aroma and flavour. Medium (light) bodied and a soft carbonation, a real mellow sweetness.

Tasting Notes: 

Guinness Original 4.2 Guinness

Swirling clouds tumble as the storm begins to calm.

Tasting Notes: Unmistakeably GUINNESS®, from the first velvet sip to the last, lingering drop. And every deep-dark satisfying mouthful in between.

Liefmans Fruitesse 4.2 Liefmans

Sipping a Liefmans Fruitesse on the rocks is like taking a city break in Berlin, soaking up the atmosphere in Milan or discovering culture in New York. Take your time to enjoy it in a friendly bar, or chilling out with your friends.

Tasting Notes: This sparkling appetiser beer, with its pale red colour, is at its very best in the stylish, playful Liefmans glass. Enjoy the fresh, intense flavour of strawberries, raspberries, black cherries, elderberries and blueberries. Bubbling, sparkling and brim-full of fruity flavours, what more could you want for the final touch to a night out? And for a refreshing change, why not try it served on the rocks…

San Miguel is brewed using a special mashing process which gives the beer a fuller and slightly sweeter flavour. The unique recipe and San Miguel yeast then come together to deliver a refreshing, full bodied beer with a great taste.

Tasting Notes: San Miguel is a pale blonde Spanish pilsner style lager, with a hoppy, citrus aroma, and hoppy zesty fruity flavours with a full flavoured hoppy lingering finish. San Miguel is well suited to tapas style food, cured meats, hams and cheeses
