user reviews of Vulcan, Coatbridge

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

After a visit to the very disappointing Wetherspoons in Airdrie, my faith in the chain was restored with a visit to the Vulcan in Coatbridge. It stands next to a rather ugly block of flats. You wouldn't think it was an ideal location for a 'spoons. But I was greeted on entry by a friendly and professional barman who quickly went behind the bar and instantly told me which of the ales on handpull were still available - Adnams Het Anker Belgian Blonde, Everards Kawasaki Red Ale & Kelburn Dark Matter. I went for the latter, which the barman recommended and it was the best beer I had during the day. This was a busier place than the Robert Hamilton in Airdrie. Yet the bar staff here were keeping a much tighter ship. My favourite pub during my this day's visit to Lanarkshire. I continued from here to the smaller, more intimate St Andrew's Bar. This is the other side of town and not listed on here. It's still worth a visit and also stocks a real ale.

My first beer in Coatbridge was in this old fashioned Wetherspoons and I only came here as it's in the Good Beer Guide 2013.

With the raining chucking it down outside this homely pub was a welcome respite.

6 pumps dispensing 3 festival beers along with Abbott, Deuchars IPA and another Scottish beer.

Very quiet on my visit but this wasn't a problem, not much to speak of regarding the decor but the warm welcome and good beer was more than enough.

Excellent little 'spoons.
