Stag & Thistle
Pub with sister venues in East Ayrshire, dishing up classic grub in an enticing corner spot in Strathbungo.
With two successful village pubs in Ayrshire bearing the name already, Stag & Thistle now has a Glasgow outpost in the old Mulberry Street spot in Strathbungo. It makes sense, in so much as this corner unit has always had a homely, neighbourhood feel about it, with a cheerful buzz during the day and well into the evening as locals from the many tenement flats nearby come in for a drink and a chat. Natural wood and light coming in from two sides make it a pleasant space in which to sit, with a separate dining room that comes into play in the evening. Food is kept simple and served elegantly, in a Scottish/bistro style. A fillet of haddock is smokey and pearlescent, with potatoes beneath and a runny poached egg on top. Veg tempura is suitably light, crisp and chewy. Then they do lots of burgers as well as steaks, crepes, lasagne…it’s a big menu with no mystery, but a lot that is satisfyingly decent. And the lunch menu is great value.
