Couting House is a pub designed to offer great value and a nice environment for a drink and some simple pub grub. The Counting House situated in the city centre of Glasgow is located in an exceptionally well placed location with the train stations and buses all easily in reach and other pubs and restaurants in reach also. The building itself used to be a bank and is nicely done out making it a pub with a nice atmosphere sometimes able to be experienced also.

The Counting House on Glasgow's Queen st/St.Vincent Street is part of the J.D Wetherspoons chain and is one of the best pubs i've visited in the city. I first went in one day for lunch while i spent the day shopping and i was amazed at the great variety of food offered and even happier when it arrived and the quality was excellent! Prices are extremely low, and as i found out when i moved to Glasgow to go to University, it's very popular with students. Not only is the food cheap, but they always have drinks on promotion! I've been asked to provide some examples of the food available and prices of drinks - Food available: *Large ... Read the complete review

It is with very mixed emotion that I write this opinion. I have had many a great night out in the Counting House, and have some great memories of being there with good company ... but I hate the atmosphere in the pub. The Pub is situated in a very impressive old building which used to be a bank (hence the name), slap bang in the middle of the city centre. The close proximity to the main train and bus stations makes it an ideal meeting place for work nights out etc. and is the main reason that I have visited it so often. The pub is part of the JD Wetherspoon chain, and as far as prices go it certainly lives up to the Wetherspoon's policy of providing ... Read the complete review

Tourists seem to love this place. If you pop into this JD Wetherspoon bar during the day it seems to be filled with Spaniards or Italians and if I stumbled upon a bar like this in a strange town I’d probably be impressed as well. A glass domed roof and a liberal sprinkling of statues gives this former bank a slightly impersonal feel when quiet but in the evenings it just isn’t big enough to cope with the demand. Drink is disgustingly cheap in this Wetherspoon pub with a double vodka coming in at about #1.80. Two meals can be bought for a fiver from 2-10pm. It’s basic pub grub but if you are out shopping it’s a reasonable enough place for a rest ... Read the complete review
