Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

A meal at the Butchershop is an event in itself. Sit in the chic stone, oak and leather interior of the place, gazing out over the Kelvingrove Museum, while the waiter brandishes a tray of dark, rich red beef cuts and enthuses about the rival merits of each. The steaks are the stars of the show, grass-fed Tweed Valley beef, dry-aged for up to 45 days – high-quality ingredients for an impressive kitchen. With some cuts taking time as well as skill to prepare (the tomahawk steak is 1.2kg of marbled meat cooked on its half-metre of bone for flavour) starters are crucial. Soft-shell crab, its crisp coating zinging with coriander and citrus hits, served on a refreshing celeriac remoulade, is deliciously light, or try the black pudding Scotch egg – pierce the creamy yellow yolk and let it run over its bed of chestnuts and crispy kale. While choosing steak seems a no-brainer, the pork chop is delicious, served with a wedge of black pudding, Bramley sauce and a glossy, deeply flavoursome jus. Desserts are equally impressive, ornate confections of tempered chocolate and sugar work. It’s not cheap, but a generous pre-theatre menu and changing monthly set menus are eminently affordable.

The choicest cuts of meats in it's two most popular forms

Glasgow's commitment to carnivorous dining shows no sign of abating. On the informal side, the city is awash with gourmet burger joints that offer towering stacks of juicy, funked-up patties, while proponents of smoke-house barbecue pit-style food focus…

Bar Crawls: Glasgow - The Sauchiehall Street Saunter

18 Nov 2011

Making the most of Glasgow city centre drinking

Both ‘pub crawl’ and ‘Sauchiehall Street’ can evoke images of large groups of revellers staggering from one ropey watering hole to the next, the night hurtling towards a climax of kebab sauce and lost cloakroom tickets. Well this route aims to redress…
