Craft brewing meets innovative cooking in this East End industrial-styled beer wonderland

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016/17 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.

Residing on the east edge of town, surrounded by Wellpark Brewery and Glasgow’s Necropolis, Drygate is the epitome of a modern craft brew pub. It is hipster chic with a minimalist interior throughout the brewhouse, beerhall above and spacious terrace. Drygate is heaven for beer aficionados, with 24 draught lines offering up in-house favourites such as Gladeye IPA along with a host of guest ales, and a dizzying bottle array. It’s a good spot for dining too, with the Vintage team creating seasonal menus making the most of local sourcing, with a good helping of creativity. Whether it’s a cumin-rich falafel burger that proves pub grub doesn’t have to be predictable, or a light cod fillet in a squid-infused ragù, it’s clear a lot of love has gone into each dish. And at lunchtime, quirky ‘flat pack sandwiches’ are self-assembled, stretching the micro metaphor even further.
