Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Impossible to miss at the corner of Byres and Great Western roads, the converted Church of Òran Mór stands like a one-stop citadel to all manner of West End activities, whether a gig or play, getting hitched (it’s a popular venue for Glasgow’s great and good), or just in the bar to enjoy a whisky from the extensive collection. There’s also food to be had, with a single menu now covering the whole splintered operation, whether eating in the bar, John Muir Room or the more formal Brasserie. Offerings range from partial and full breakfasts from 9am and a selection of starters/small plates to pub favourites such as burgers, pastry-topped pies and fish and chips. Delve about a bit and there’s more upmarket options such as braised ox cheek, sea bass or pan-fried lamb rump, as well as seafood specials on the board. A heavy Scots accent on the food sees the likes of haggis bonbons, Cullen skink, chicken Calmoral, and finnan haddie dished up.
