Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Elegant chesterfield-style seats, chic exposed brickwork and impressive views of Kelvingrove Museum and Glasgow University make this steak specialist a very chic West End hangout, particularly among those heading to concerts at the nearby SEC or Hydro. Famed for their tomahawks (a 1.2kg ribeye complete with half metre-long rib bone), the commitment to serving top quality, locally sourced beef is evident throughout the menu. An artisanal corned beef starter – still harbouring the gentle brine spice flavours – is excellent with its contrastingly sharp piccalilli. The generously stacked burger is juicy, nestled alongside tangy gruyère and the ubiquitous pickle in a glossy brioche bun. Steaks are, of course, the star of the show here, but a bargain pre-theatre menu means sampling this high-quality food is affordable, and includes plenty of choice for those in the mood for less carnivorous dining, including a beet salad complete with walnuts and strong blue cheese from Lanark. Desserts include playful ice-cream selections like jammy dodger or apple crumble flavours, which are a lovely conclusion to a seriously delicious meat feast.

  • High point: Eating excellent steaks with a view of two iconic Glaswegian landmarks
  • Low point: Quality like this doesn't come cheap

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…
