Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Pollokshaws Road is becoming home to new, unique and interesting cafés and restaurants, and the Lucky Sparrow is no exception. Craving retro games like Scrabble and draughts? Or, for the more experienced board gamers, Catan and Pandemic? Then this is the perfect venue to spend your evening. Over 80 board, card and roleplay games are available for all ages to choose from, especially for those with a penchant for games found in only the nerdiest collections. The menu is minimal, offering toasties and paninis, which prove the appropriate sustenance during an Arkham Horror marathon. The venue also accepts BYOB with a £3 corkage charge for wine or four cans of beer, and £1 charge per large bottle of beer, which is excellent for a fun evening with friends. The venue can be booked out for events, birthdays, team-building evenings and Dungeons and Dragons nights. The perfect place to Risk a Monopoly of Scattegories and enjoy a Battleship full of fun.
