WEST on the Corner
This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.
As you’d expect from this independent Glasgow brewery, there are nine of their own beers and lagers on tap: from Hefeweizen, a cloudy wheat beer – which sits in tall, cool glasses lined up on many tables – to their Munich-style lager, St Mungos. Opened last year after a spell as a pop-up in the space left by the Halt, the renovations now relegate the old to memory. Bare stone pillars frame large windows that span two walls, and familiar industrial lampshades hang in rows above the lively chatter. Gingerbread hearts at the bar remind patrons of WEST’s German heritage and this continues if you step next door to the restaurant area. Here, sausages are well represented on the menu, but there’s also a few surprises – the hot smoked salmon is so good you’ll want to lick the plate, and Goan fish curry is aromatic and perfectly cooked. Just another reason to go West.
