New York pizza in Govanhill served in a classic dive bar setting, with BYOB currently on offer.

Eating & Drinking Guide

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

It’s hard to believe Errol’s only arrived in early 2019, so quickly has it established itself in Govanhill. Opened up by a group of friends – all local residents – its old-school dive-bar aesthetic and classic New York pizza distinguish it. First up – the small plates. The chefs are formerly of Finnieston’s Alchemilla, and there’s something reminiscent of that establishment’s excellent Mediterranean cooking – the refreshingly tangy artichoke, lemon and almonds, or purple-sprouting broccoli with chilli and garlic. That’s the opening act to the pizza’s swaggering headliner. The thin base is gorgeous – robust but flexible, so you can fold it over as you would in Brooklyn. The punchy puttanesca’s combination of anchovies, capers, and sun-dried tomato is an early hit, while the white base of gorgonzola, fior di latte and parmesan is rich and creamy but not an over-indulgence. Vegans might struggle – but pizzas can be made with meat-free parmesan-style cheese. Awaiting an alcohol licence it’s BYOB for now, with no charge. Complete with nods to everything from Serie A and Don McLean to the Sopranos, Errol’s has bags of personality and stands out from the crowd.
