While Turnip & Enjoy has been keeping local Kelvinbridgers and more well fed for ten years – previously as more of a café operation, recent years have seen it transformed into a top-end bistro, bordering on the finer side of dining. A stylish yet informal venue, with a pleasant continental vibe, the upscaling of the food paid off in 2016 when they were awarded an AA Rosette. There’s been the inevitable creep up in prices – which had previously offered a real bargain for cooking of this calibre. Lunctime service has recently reduced to only on Fri-Sun, with the once great-value set lunch menu gone, yet lunchtimes still offer top-notch dining at reasonable prices. The lunch and evening à la carte menus lay on the French-inspired flourishes while maintaining a Scottish edge with the likes of bacon dashi with rabbit ballotine, seabuckthorn with duck liver bavarois, or shiitake haggis croustillant.
