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.

‘I’ve got a theory about making good food: Don’t use rubbish ingredients’. Connor Miskimmin, head chef and co-owner alongside brother Luke is a man of his word. Scottish salmon cured with Glasgow’s Makar gin exemplifies this approach, with fragrant gin and thick-cut salmon slices combining perfectly with chunky Tapa bread. It’s evident again in fantastic steamed buns with Far Eastern fillings – try panko breadcrumbed chicken with sriracha mayo – and there’s crispy sourdough pizza or weekly meatball specials as well. The tapas-style menu is ideal for encouraging adventure, not least with the Ethiopian chickpea curry whose aromatic heat dances on the tongue. This is a pub with a heart, too – from the small notice quietly announcing they pay the Living Wage to Sunday family folk afternoons and the warm bubbles of conversation rising over rare craft beers in chinking glasses. A pleasure to spend time in.
