The domain and web site of is owned and copyrite by David Hunter, a regular of The Horse Shoe Bar since 1966 and avid pie eater.

All prices quoted for meals, drinks, special offers and services are historical and hold The Horse Shoe Bar and David Hunter to no liability whatsoever should they be incorrect.

The site does not collect any personal information from its viewers other than statistical.

The site was started in 2007 when Mitchells & Butlers, the owners, decided to do away with the traditional pie and replace them with their standard menu. The site ran a petition to "Save the Pie" and received 65,000 responses over 2 weeks, saw local and national press and television coverage, we were sent emails from all over the world in support, and received personal support from celebrities, all of which on being presented to Mitchells & Butlers saw the return of the pie to the daily menu. Hence the reason for the site still being active... and The Horse Shoe still selling pies

It's a record of the history of the pub and also what's happening in it to this day.

Anyone is welcome to contact me at if they'd like to add anything to the website content.

The Horse Shoe Bar is a traditional Glasgow pub, loved by many both here and overseas and with the Category A Listed Building status applying to both the exterior and the interior, all aspects of its traditional design and character should be safely retained for many years to come.
