due to the covid crisis hav,nt been in solid rock since march.on entry you need to wear a mask,get temp taken and give contact details.if you have booked a table you are shown to it and then order.unfortunately no music is being played,for the solid...that is surreal.havnt sat down in here for about 20 years so felt strange at first but overall was a relaxing night,staff were spot on with everything and turned out to be a decent night out.hopefully things can get back to normal and solid can get back to being a good loud night out,best rock bar by far in glasgow .....More

If you like Rock & Metal Music then this is the ultimate bar for you. Brilliant music, brilliant selection of beers and a brilliant atmosphere. Food was lovely as well & no too expensive.

Have only started going to the solid in the last few months as I've recently got into hard rock music. But I love it. Has Budweiser on draught which is excellent. The music is great as well. Can't wait till the lockdown is over. So...I can get myself back for a pintMore

Still one of the best pubs in Glasgow !! Popped in on Friday 14th Feb before we went to the Beth Hart gig. Excellent lunch, and drinks prices are still brill. We are repeat offenders, and will be back. Cheers to all the staff !!

i love the solid been going to it for years , decent crowd frequent the pub bar staff are mostly fine , u get the odd crabbit episode but to be fair to them u also get the odd idiot busting there ass, music is...good mostly , but need to remember it's a rock pub , travis and the killers dont cut it with me or my friends, i no rock gives u a broad spectrum but these bands should not be playing in the solid ? just my humble opinion Now, on to the bug bear about the solid , the smell ! It's been there for years , and it's still there , told many years ago there was a problem with the drains ? How long does it take to fix an obvious downside to a smashing pub ? i know loads of people who refuse to go to the solid because they cant handle it anymore and then u get the manager on here replying stuff like good riddance an u'l not be missed ? not exactly good buisness sense ? In general a great rock boozer spoiled by a smell that has been lingering for yearsMore

Not changed in years always great. Best rock Tunes, always busy but never too crowded with quick service. Food is decent but never disappointed when you are in for a drink any time of the week !

Have been going to The Solid for years, always feel safe and never wait too long to get served. Can’t say I’ve ever eaten there before but I will have to try some day.
