This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
If you like going round to your Mum’s place for a damned good feed, you’ll love this little family-run eatery off Maryhill Road. Cosy, with a homely vibe to the décor, such as decorative signage (expect to see a minimum of one “Keep calm and carry on” sign here), it could almost be a pop-up that’s never popped-down again. It may be modest in size, but it’s big in portions: huge belt-busting helpings of good, tasty home-cooked food. Take the starter of hot, tender black pudding stuffed into a fleshy Portobello mushroom: it’s overflowing with rocket, light breadcrumbs and toasted pine nuts and is both enormous and delicious. Main courses include fish and chips, lasagne and macaroni cheese as well as dishes such as haddock fillet crammed with pesto and wrapped in Parma ham. The puddings (oh the puddings) such as the Malteser chocolate cake, or the pecan banoffee pie, don’t scrimp on size either. Perhaps that’s what makes this local little bistro so immensely popular: so popular that it can be hard to get a table. Early booking is advised.
