After reserving I was given one option of a low stool underneath the bar area, the worst seat in the house with no option to change. I subsequently left. If we are going to buy drinks at £10 each i do expect a proper seat when i visit the bar and at least service from the waiter that at least tries to give you an option to change.

First night out in Glasgow since February. Reserved a table for a couple of drinks before eating next door in Bo'vine. I loved this place before and still do. Social distancing and sanitising measures as they should be. Staff attentive and helpful. Looking forward to my next visit already!

Found it to be very cold therefore not at all comfortable. Also would be nice to see some candles on the tables given the area is very dark. Might help improve the atmosphere a bit.

Great afternoon having drinks before dinner. Digital menu is a great idea and found BeGIN following all possible social distancing measures and we found the bar a safe place to visit. Shame tge bar isn't able to have any music which would have made the atmosphere better.

When you book it does not advise you have a 2 hour time limit. With 20 mins remaining we were advised that the next booking had arrived early and they needed our table. We then just felt rushed

I've never been to a gin bar not to have my gin served in a gin glass. Instead a tumbler glass?! Based on your prices that is ridiculous.
