This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
Located handily beside Jordanhill train station and twinned with the Sisters Kelvingrove, dining at this Scottish restaurant is a classy experience. Don’t be put off by the uninspiring entrance which takes you through a slightly scruffy wooden structure, then up steps patchily covered with fake grass as it doesn’t do justice to the lovely tartan and green interior, which is cosy and warmly lit. Start with the satisfyingly huge slab of chicken liver pâté with oatcakes and chutney or the hot toast with wild mushroom and sticky port red onions, both delicious appetisers. The main courses are surprisingly steep in some cases (such as £16.95 for the parsnip, chestnut and cranberry loaf), but it is worth treating yourself to the incredible roast limerick ham served with scallion mash and buttered cabbage. It is almost impossible to choose a dessert with the selection including clootie dumpling, Bramley apple and pear cinnamon Betty as well as the restaurant’s incredibly sweet concoction of puff candy meringue with honeycomb ice cream, served with hot butterscotch sauce.

Fair game: a brief history of Scotland's small game industry, and how it operates now1 May 2009
Small game – wild pheasant, duck, pigeon, partridge and rabbit – was once a staple food in Scottish working-class households. Gordon Davidson hunts around to see where it has all gone.
