Strathbungo bar focusing on pub grub and cocktails, plus brunch and even a dog's menu, with live music and sports.

Eating & Drinking Guide

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

The menus at Sammy’s playfully says ‘Re-Est 2018’, an acknowledgement of the building’s previous, previous, previous iteration, the boozer Sammy Dow’s. Much has changed in Strathbungo in the subsequent years, and this particular corner site has often struggled to find its feet. But now, we have a nod to the past and a bold step forward. It has the trappings of a pub as you enter: arcade machine, wooden bench seating, stools at the bar, but still feels very much like a place one comes to eat. A casual eatery, that’s dog and kid friendly. And most amicable for non-carnivores, too, with nearly half the menu vegetarian (and for plurality, meat dishes are marked ‘M’ rather than just the veggie ones being marked ‘V’). Its straight up the middle stuff, a mushroom and spinach bolognese with vegetarian mince, or a chicken burger of blackened Cajun fillets. Classic pub grub, but with a keen eye on catering for everyone. Lots of wines by the glass, too.
