About Us

We are here to provide a home away from home for the people of Thornwood and beyond – a third place where you will be welcomed in to enjoy the very best local food, drink, music, and art alongside other members of the community. 

We’re on a mission to rediscover lost values of service and community, while creating a destination where people can build lasting relationships.

Customers can expect brunch, small plates and gourmet pizzas on its gastropub-style menu, which will champion local produce and seasonal ingredients, while elements of the offering take inspiration from South African-born owner Bradley Potteron’s homeland.

“We want to bring the industry together and support the best of Glasgow’s incredible food and drink scene.

I want this to be the community’s third place, a home away from home. There’s home, there’s work, and then there’s BRU.

The support from the industry and public has been amazing. From connecting with local suppliers the minute we decided to open, to getting to know the characters of Thornwood and beyond. People have been asking what we’re up to: there’s a genuine interest and people want to support any way they can. We’re excited we can now, finally, welcome everyone in.”
