Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

The Black Poppy gives the warmest of welcomes from an otherwise bleak stretch of Stonelaw Road, and with eight flavours of balsamic vinegar and eleven types of pâté, it’s a pretty unique sort of place, too. It exudes community spirit and, as well as hosting events with local businesses, it boasts a mixed clientele of mums and toddlers, the elderly, solo sippers and twenty-somethings. The emphasis is firmly on home-made and home-grown. Apart from fabulous fresh soups (one meat, one veg), lasagne and macaroni cheese, there are interesting weekly specials such as langoustine tails, plus family-made cakes, and triple-decker sandwiches (very well-priced), pies (and those pâtés) from Findlater's at Linlithgow, as well as beer from some of the smaller Scottish craft breweries and liquor coffees (popular is the Bailey’s hot chocolate). All suppliers are small and with the right ethos – just like the Black Poppy.

  • High point: The warmth, the ethos, the sandwiches
  • Low point: Difficult to park nearby during the day
