The first thing you will notice at Partick Underground Station is how swish and swanky the place looks, although this is definitely helped by journeying there from Govan. In comparison, Govan Underground Station definitely looks like The Land That Time Forgot but when you step out of Partick Station, you realise you haven’t ventured far from Govan at all.

The pub you stop at for the Partick leg of the Glasgow Subcrawl very much depends on how you exit the station and navigate the bus stations. If on your exit from the station, you take the leftmost route to Dumbarton Road, you will find a couple of options available to you.

Stumps catches your eye as you walk up to Dumbarton Road, situated as it is on Peel Street, just off Dumbarton Road on the other side of the busy road. This is a pub which can be described as compact and bijou but is cosy enough to fit a decent size group of Subcrawlers.

Of course, by the time you cross Dumbarton Road to get across to Stumps you will realise that you have left the Hayburn Vaults behind you, a far bigger pub and one which you can get to without crossing any roads.

There are some stops where walking a distance is necessary but depending on the nature of the group, there is always likely to be someone who insists on rules and regulations being met. For many Subcrawlers, the first pub you encounter after leaving the underground station is the pub that counts as being part of the Subcrawl. The Hayburn Vaults is a fine big pub, with a large variety of drink and sport on TV so you won’t be having any problems if you are hauled into here.

Heading out of Partick Station and taking the more scenic route to Dumbarton Road opens up The Etrrick, The Smiddy Bar and The Fiddlers, all of which may provide a slight change of pace or an alternative if you are a Subcrawl regular.
