Modern Strathbungo bar and restaurant serving locally sourced fish dishes and boasting an individual menu of Scottish craft gins and tonic pairings.
This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.
Bridging two streets The Salisbury is nestled in the heart of the burgeoning Strathbungo drinking scene. The interior is modern with suspended light bulbs and exposed brick, while the double glass frontage allows the compact restaurant to feel spacious. A spirit has to prove its merit to join the neat ranks behind the bar, which also serves its own draft, Salisbury Brew. The stand-alone gin menu suggests tonic pairings with their Scottish craft gins, with the slight spice of a Fever-Tree Ginger Ale complementing the botanicals of an Eden Mill Oak. The food menu specialises in fish, locally sourced from the west coast and deftly paired with contrasting flavours. Salt cod is served with subtly sweet toffee mash bon bon and married with tartare velouté. Likewise seared sea bream is skilfully cooked and accompanied by a refreshing pineapple and clam fricassée. Dessert cocktails offer a closing flourish of fresh ingredients.
