Angels' Share Hotel & Bar

A vibrant and fashionable showcase of contemporary Scotland in the West End, with an extensive cocktail list and good-value classic menus with a Scottish twist.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018/19 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

The Angel’s Share is the small amount of alcohol that evaporates from the whisky barrel during fermentation; rest assured it’s the only alcohol missing from the extensive drinks menu at the smart West End destination of the same name. Scotland is writ large in every aspect of this contemporary hotel and bar/restaurant: from the luxe decor - showcasing well-known Scots personalities, to the menus - showcasing local produce and suppliers. Tear your eyes from the ornate ceiling and mirrored walls to peruse the a la carte menu, and you’ll find a compact offering of classics, many with a Scottish twist, as well as flat iron steaks and lighter, eastern-inspired options, including salads. Creamy cullen skink with thick chunks of smoked haddock, new potato and leeks is a satisfying starter but leave room for the prime beef haggis and whisky sausages and mash, or crisp Innis & Gunn beer battered haddock. With affordable pricing, attentive service and popular offers like the two for £12 lunch, and Steak Tuesday, you can make believe you’re a millionaire in opulent surroundings for a relatively modest outlay.
