About The Tickled Trout
Closed for refurbishment
The Tickled Trout will be closed for a few days from 7pm on Sunday 20th of July while we spruce up its interiors. Don't worry, our doors will re-open on Midday on Saturday 26th of July, when the place will be sparkling with even more rural charm and rustic character. More on our makeover.
The Tickled Trout in Bearsden is a country pub & restaurant oozing rural charm and rustic character. Our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, and the carefully nurtured cask ales and fine wines gracing our bar.
Book a table online and enjoy a spot by our roaring log-fire. Or make the best of the British summertime by eating alfresco in our pretty beer garden.
A little pub history
The land on which the inn stands was originally purchased by the owner of Boclair Farm in Milngavie and began life as a shop selling vegetables grown on the farm. The Antonine Wall, built after Hadrian's Wall, runs nearby and a Roman bath hose was found a mile to the west of the pub at Bearseden. Also found, at the near by Chapel Hill, were altars and religious stones with Roman inscriptions.
Make a day of it
A mix of The Tickled Trout's location, character and history attracts many visitors. The River Allander that flows through the town has played an important part in its development and fly-fishing is a popular pastime.
