A venerable Glasgow pub taken over in 2016 by the owners of Sloans and Brel, offering food (chicken goujons a speciality), goblets of the extensive gin collection and craft beer.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017/18 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

While Glasgow's King's Theatre opened in 1904, the Griffin, situated just across the road, feels just as stately. The new owners – who also have Brel, Sloan's and Maggie Mays – have decided that rather than be a jack of all trades, it shall be a master of gins and classic chicken goujons. Though perhaps a perplexing choice, things look rather promising with a range of goujon crusts – natural breadcrumb, cornflake or herb and parmesan – and various dips for dunking. The gin menu is where things get really interesting with a superb selection of Scottish-made options. Served within an imposing goblet and accompanied by fruits or spices respectively, the Eden Mill Love from St Andrew's is heavenly while Glasgow's own Makar Gin is alluring to say the least with botanicals of 90 per cent juniper. Sing it to the rafters, the Griffin is back in business.
