For someone who’s never seen it before, the Church on the Hill is pretty stunning – a refurbished church that looks like the Parthenon in Greece, facing on to Queen’s Park. It really is a lovely venue, and very popular with a cross-section of Southsiders, from families through to a rather more boisterous crowd in the evening. Lots of flat screen TVs with good vantage points, and a well-stocked bar aimed at the pre-club crowd (with lots of promotions) keep the masses happy. The back section is for eating, doing some mainstream meat and fish dishes (fillet of seabass, chicken supreme) alongside the more popular pastas (of which, king prawn and chorizo linguine has a nice light, pulpy sauce) and good old burgers (including a lamb one), which are nicely priced and well-presented. A worthy alternative to Shawlands, especially in the summer.
